    • Get out of the Middle East!

      There is no GOOD reason to be there. As a matter of fact, our military occupation of their land is why there is a threat of a terrorist attack here! If we weren't there, we could do away with TSA, NSA, Homeland Security, etc!

      • Increase military strength to Cold War levels and FIRE Civilian contractors.

        If the military had soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines doing the things that provide them with bridges, beans, bunks, and bullets, we wouldn't NEED the civilian contractors - it would most likely save money - it would certainly be better for our reputation - and in peacetime, instead of reducing the force, we could put those military personnel "on detail" rebuilding our infrastructure. I really don't think it would take away jobs - because labor is such a big part of the expense, many jobs go unfunded and undone. THIS labor would be free.

            • How would you like to have an extra $400 per month in your pocket

              Gasoline $4.25 by Xmas. Thats right becaused the oil companies know you wil pay it. But you have a choice-Been alot of places, done alot of things. Most most recent achievement is the development of 3 different platforms commercial, residential, and automotive. I believe the grid starts at home not the utility or local filling station.
              President Obama with a stroke of a pen and presidential order could put America in the GREEN , how you say we are at war (did you forget Afaghanistan and the terrorist?) American manufacturing and fuel economy and lower carbon foot prints. no more…

              • Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad UAE?

                The Iranians are not just our friends; they are our ancestors, they shepherd the cradle of civilization...to war with Iran is to war with our own bloodline.

                So why would they dislike Israel? “The fourth Act was the Quartering Acts of 1774, which allowed royal governors to house British troops in the homes of citizens without requiring permission of the owner.” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Revolution, 2011)

                It doesn’t sound at all like the Allied Power's establishment of Israel, does it? Just 2 years later, in 1776, we struck the Declaration of Independence. What’s good for the goose should be good for…

                • A standing army and navy is a threat to liberty

                  The Jeffersonians believed that a standing army and navy is a threat to liberty. I would shut down all our foriegn bases, bring the troops home, and disban them.

                  • Establish an 'International BRAC' (Base Realignment & Closure' Commission)

                    In the 90's, after the collapse of the USSR, we declared a 'Peace Dividend', due the US taxpayer, in the form of a BRAC / 'Base Realignment & Closure' Commission to close unneeded expensive &/or redundant US military bases.

                    We need to do it AGAIN. This time taking a look at the HUNDREDS of overseas facilities (total ~1000 US bases world wide) w/an eye to either closure OR having the hosting country pay for the facility. OUR DoD is creating jobs all over the world, w/US Taxpayer provided $$. WRONG!. With a DoD budget approaching $800B/Yr we should be able…

                    • Create a global military force. Then the US could cut its defense budget by 75%. Sell our weapons.

                      Create a global military force. Then the US could cut its defense budget by 75%. Sell our weapons to the World Bank and pay down the National Debt from that sale. With 25% of our military we could easily protect the US. We have a global economy, a global trade why not a global military. Why should the US be the global policeman. We can't afford it any longer.
