    You sleazy president is the one who wants a peace time arms race, and to vastly increase Pentagon spending.

    Liberals on this board, to a man and woman probably, have always advocated for less Pentagon spending.

    Your president is the one who is intent on an arms race and massive military buildup.

    ridiculous. utter rubbish. basically a rant

    The defense spending increases in NON-NATO were to rebuild our defenses WORLDWIDE
    after the carving out readiness and hardware because of Sequestor.

    I even said "NATO" in the thread title -but you prefer to ignore the topic.

    More money to "stop the Russians " (NATO) is silliness -especially when NATO is the culprit for it's expansion
    and now "strategic ties" to Ukraine.
    This is a recipe for fiscal madness and a tripwire war

    This is pathetic.

    It's gotten so bad for you that you're reduced to this trash.

    Delete your (many) accounts.

    Wait a second - STOP.

    So we are to celebrate you restoring funding you cut before when you did your shitty, stupid, pointless Sequestor?

    Conservatives are such flip-floppers.

    Your instincts have been utterly wrong about EVERYTHING.

    Fiona Hill just carpet bombed the entire GOP today after Sondland detonated a dirty bomb yesterday.

    You're fucked. Like Hill says, you're doing Russia's work for them, either because you're a Russian, or you're incredibly fucking stupid.

    Liberals and Lefties on this board have advocated less for spending on something specifically delegated by the Constitution and more on things for which nothing is the Constitution is mentioned.

    Hey, guess what, your lying ass still hasn't provided proof of any claim you made.

    Prove you're a coward again, boy. I command you.

    Sure, but we have enough to spend on both. It isn't an either/or situation.

    lol .what is "enough" -and we don't take in anywhere near enough to even fund current obligations..

    Dems used to prefer spending on domestic programs, now they are the same as Republican hawks on da Russians.
    Based on what I've been seeing in impeachment the only thing both parties agree on is spending more on NATO
    and anti Russian aid.

    I do agree that America spends way too much on defense. I'm just saying that we can have it both ways. We can have national and international defense, as well as universal healthcare and UBI, paid for by taxes on the 1%
