Yet your fine with cutting the military right down the middle fuck all. Though I do agree, maybe we should take some of that military money and secure the fucking southern border with it so all the potential liberal votes stop sneaking in. You may be on to something there.

I'm not talking about people like your mother who used it for the purpose it was made for, to get back on her feet and be productive. Unfortunately that isn't the way the majority who are on it go about it.

I was including the military when I said we shouldn't cut any program right down the middle. But certainly we could do with a lot less military. There's simply no credible threat to justify our military expenditure.

Welfare was reformed in the late 90s. You can't just stay on it forever like you used to. it runs out. And you have to be actively seeking work. You'll notice in budget talks no one brings it up anymore, b/c it's not the huge resource drain that it used to be.

These days it's all about SS and medicaid/medicare. These programs are extremely popular with Americans though, so good luck with reducing those.
