The strength of the GOP is making the $50K per year truck driver believe he is the one paying for social programs. While social programs are a waste, they do not come close to the waste involved in military spending. The big question is: How much do you think Israel would pay to protect America? How about if we have Israel come over here and attack Canada for us? Would they bankrupt their country and send their countrymen to the poorhouse for U.S. interests? Israel is a strategic liability and a drain on Americans. We can't afford war with Iran for Israel's sake so they can be the only nuclear power in the Middle East. Iran has no ability to make nukes and Israel has 200 of them. The lie about Iran wiping Israel off the map is nothing but propaganda. Ahmajinedad said, "The Zionist Regime occupying Israel should vanish from the pages of history." He merely meant the Zionist government will collapse. The words "wipe", "Israel", "off" and "map" were never used. Israel lied and forged the Iraq yellow cake documents, forged the Iran laptop documents, and assassinated Iranians while funding terror inside Iran. Israel slaughtered dozens and dozens of U.S. Naval personnel on the USS Liberty that it lies about until this day. Israel machine-gunned U.S. sailors swimming in the water and the injured on life boats. It was a dastardly deed that was whitewashed by John McCain Sr. In return, he got Zionist support for his son's election to congress..
