I understand the need to defeat those who attack you. There is no Nation on Earth that can respond as fast or as deadly as America can. The Military of Russia, China, and all the Terrorist on Earth combined do not come close to matching ours. But I do not understand the need to occupy other nations in the name of self defense. The cost of 58000 American lives and over a million Vietnamese deaths should have taught us something. We got into that War on a lie just as we got into Iraq on a lie. It cost us more American lives in Iraq than we lost in 9/11 and it had nothing to do with 9/11. It cost 100 times more Iraqi lives and they did nothing to us except own oil that we wanted. I understand being prepared for war.
I do not understand the the need to kill Americans who cannot afford healthcare to save the money. I do not understand the need to leave Americans without an education and force us into a third-rate Nation because you don't want to tax the privileged. I do not understand the need to remove Americans from their homes and let them go hungry while saving the Bankers and paying them Huge Bonus for forcing us into a Great Recession.. I do not understand people who say America can not afford to do what the rest of the Developed World already does. How can we spend so much to Kill and so little to Build AMERICA.
