Retaliate or cut the military

September 15, 2013
Parkersburg News and Sentinel

President Obama has asked Congress to make a major decision concerning the future role of America in the world. Liberals and libertarians have wanted this debate for many years. The United States spends more taxpayer money on our military than the next 10 largest countries combined. This is the price we Americans pay to be the world's military "super power." This is the price tag for the USA to be the enforcer of international treaties, laws and norms and the defender of human rights around the world. We spend hundreds of billions more on our defense department than anyone else because we are the great and mighty United States of America-the most powerful nation on earth. Congress will now vote if we want to continue in that role.
