    Let's take a serious look at our military spending; The United States spends $711 billion per annum, which is $148.5 billion more than all the countries below combined, yet our population is 314,970,000 or 8.5% of their combined population totals.
    China, Russia, United Kingdom, France, Japan, Saudi Arabia, India, Germany, Brazil, Italy, South Korea, Australia, Canada, Trukey, Pakistan have combined annual military spending of $562.5 billion with combined populations of 3,686,144,388.

    1. Answering a question

      @YoungSilverTongue

      Schools are paid for primarily at the local and state level. Military spending will be reduced significantly if we bring home all of the troops.

      Also, Ron Paul does not want to have no taxes, he just wants to have no Income Tax.

      On November 20, 2008 Ron Paul said in a New York Times / Freakonomics interview:

      “I want to abolish the income tax, but I don’t want to replace it with anything. About 45 percent of all federal revenue comes from the personal income tax. That means that about 55 percent — over half of all revenue — comes from other sources, like excise taxes, fees, and corporate taxes.

      We could eliminate the income tax, replace it with nothing, and still fund the same level of big government we had in the late 1990s. We don’t need to “replace” the income tax at all. I see a consumption tax as being a little better than the personal income tax, and I would vote for the Fair-Tax if it came up in the House of Representatives, but it is not my goal. We can do better.”

    I'm sick of hearing the words "Department of Defense" and "Defense spending"... Hey, everybody, when you invade 20+ countries in the span of less than a century, it's not called defense, it's imperialism and warmongering. We need to rename it the "Department of War", or maybe the "Department of the Empire". That would make a lot more sense.

    I agree with a lot that you say and I would like to see you become a senator, but I would vote for you as president tomorrow if you did 3 things: 1.) Reduce all the Big government you want 2.) spend on defense, technology, school, and transpiration 3.) don't punish oversees farmers, but do punish oversees manufacturing companies...they don't need cheap land.

    Hi Dr Paul. This world will NEVER be united because every race has their own pride. Every country wants the upper hand in this world. If china had the power, and they will eventually, what's stopping them from doing the same. Americas defense strategy is not the problem, the general human mentality is. There is nothing that can be done about that. Take over the world? Of course not, but somebody will always have a grip on it; I choose US. God will deal with injustice when the time comes.
