    Will he cut military spending greatly and give it to the illegal alien crack-addicts with his nearly $1 trillion health care plan? I seem to think that, judging by the recent things I've read/heard. I'd like to know if that may be true before I dig myself into a hole with any debates I may find.

    He'll only do that if the UN lets him.

    If Kerry wins I'm quitting my job and leeching off of welfare.

    He has said that he would send more troops and I have never seen him mention he would cut military spending.

    As for the health care spending, Bush has not been the greatest in that regards either. he has created yet another layer of buearcracy in the health care industry.

    military spending can afford a cut of a few billion dollars anyway. It might make the spenders more accountable and cause less waste.

    It can? During a war?

    How can we cut spending if Kerry is going to increase the size of the military?

    it can, theres so much waste in the military budget its unreal. its all a fiscal mess. stricter fiscal accountability would either A) reduce spending by a few billion dollars or B) provide a few billion dollars to go into buying a few more jets or tanks.

    To continue all the things that Kerry would like to do with military we can not afford to cut spending. However both kerry and Bush want to keep our military in over 100 plus countries.

    If Badnarik was elected we would be able to cut the military budget because we would not have such an aggressive military that feels the need to be in 100+ countries. Many of these nations have huge economies and are not a threat and could provide their own defense. Other countries are not a threat but we send our troops to them to help in some war that is not our business. This creates enemies.

    That seems reasonable. Can you give some examples of countries we should pull out of?
