The US military spending is out of control, has no audit and is a waste of our tax dollars.

Our bloated military budget and waste is ruining our country. Our educational needs, infrastructure, making changes to switch to clean, alternative forms of energy so we quit starting wars to get natural resources, etc. , starts with cutting the military budget and waste.

It's time to acknowledge the U.S. is no longer the world's policeman. That revenue spent on the military needs to come back home to serve the needs of the American people!

The US spends more on active military spending than the next ten nations in the world. The only possible reason is either that the US has designs on controlling the world or the military industrial complex is all powerful. Funds diverted from military spending to infrastructure spending would serve dual purposes and bring the US into the modern world. We are shamed by the infrastructure in other countries like several in Europe, Japan, china, etc. We also need to rein in health care spending through broadening the very effective price controls that Medicare provides.

I do not see the threat from Russia or China/PRC. The explosive undercover documentary produced by Al Jazeera’s investigative unit exposes how US Israeli lobby groups – including the Foundation for Defense of Democracies and the Israel on Campus Coalition – work closely with the Israeli government to spy on and slander American citizens who speak out for Palestinian rights.
Here is the link to the film The Lobby - USA which has been censored. We are in a psychological war with Zionists who violate the human rights of Palestinians.

Peace Works! Not war. Less mlitary force, more aid and global diplomacy. We need to unite with all countries on the planet and work together to stop global warming. Share our wealth instead of foolishly trying to hoard it as the proverbial Titanic of our world slips below the waves.

Thanks for adding your voice.

We can't afford to continue wasting hundreds of billions of dollars each year on a military that resists being audited. See http://waliberals.org/resolution-about-us-military-spending-for-rep-adam-smith/2019/01/09/
