Ahh...the sacred Military-Industrial-Congressional-Security Complex -- the darling of the Republican Party, idolized by all conservatives everywhere in America -- even libertarians.

It's the ever-widening sinkhole that promises to engulf us all.

There is SO much waste, all those golf courses, sponsorships, etc., don't even begin to scratch the surface. Billions of such waste could be immediately eliminated without actual "defense spending" (what a joke) even being touched.

Furthermore, 40% of the budget is "secret" - we don't know HOW much money goes to paying off child-raping warlords in Afghanistan, assassinating foreign officials, meddling in the affairs of other sovereign nations, etc, etc.

It's the most obscene racket ever, and our paid-off Congressional toadies rubberstamp it all.

Nothing is ever going to change in this country for the better unless the people rise up and dismantle this dysfunctional system completely and start fresh, with representatives who represent citizens, not corporations. And as long as corporate money and "campaign contributions" are part of the process, this is the mess we will have. Period.
