Arguments

  • I think it's important to increase so we can be taken seriously 
  • PinoPino 79 Pts
    During the ''wilderness'' years of President, inertia, Obama both Russia and China built up their military forces just as Hitler did in the 1930s
    While this was happening Obama was ''having tea with the Queen of England'' and making ego boosting, meaningless speeches to captive audiences.
    China has just launched it's latest aircraft carrier and if present trends are allowed to continue we will become a 2nd rate military power and will have to toe the line as instructed by the world's new superpowers. 
    Maybe we could engage Obama in our defense department and he could talk our enemies into submission or drive them stark ravening mad. 
  • I think defense spending should be tied to GDP, at about 6-7%.
  • inc4tinc4t 158 Pts
    @CYDdharta, I agree
  • My concern with increasing the military budget is identifying source of these funds. It doesn't look that Trump is proposing to increase taxes, so it will likely just add to our already unsustainable national debt
    WhyTrump - a good question
