I support an immediate withdrawal from Iraq and Afghanistan, and a dramatic reduction in our world wide military presence. I would oppose any unnecessary involvement in military conflicts, especially when we can not afford to fund them.
Any serious conversation about cuts in government spending must involve the massively inflated military spending. Aside from simply cutting spending from aggressive military programs we must look at who that money is going to. Around the world and at home our government is paying foreign companies to build for and supply our military. I propose that we give American based companies, who employ American workers preference in military contracts, both for reasons of fiscal responsibility and national security.
