How much out of every tax dollar spent do you think goes to are military budget?
47% goes into weapons and research. 6% more goes into paying for are soldiers and their needs.
so for ever dollar taken for tax 53% of it is given to the military.

Compare that to Iceland they take 1% of their tax payers money and put it into a military Budget.

Now lets look at the 2nd largest military China, how much more do you think we spend in are military than they do? we spend 5 times more than they do.
We spend over 40 times more than most other countries.

So next time you take a dollar out of your wallet just think how about half will be spent on weapons and bases made for killing people, and another few pennies on the people to use those weapons.


Do we Really need to spend so much money on are military?
Iceland spends 1% on there military, we spend 53%.
Makes you think where they spend the other 99% of there money? Education? Science? Health care? What are they crazy!?!

Lolz you can't even compare Iceland to USA. They are two incaompairable countries. The size difference alone is far superior. Plus the military provides jobs and futures for people that without it, they wouldn't do anything with their lives except cause havoc.

I said nothing about the amount spent. I am talking about the % spent. % of are tax money goes to it.

If I was to compare size I point out that America spend more than 40 times what other countries do on there military. Well only 5 times more than China.


If any other country took that much of there tax payers money and put it into there military we be scared that there getting ready to start a world war.

'Future Jobs? How about instead of tacking 53% of the taxes and investing in military, we invest it in creating Jobs and paying for people to get an education. So we have jobs for people. Because a lot of soldiers getting out of the military can not find work just like the rest of of the over 41% of working-age Americans do not have jobs. (that is almost half of people 18+ do not have a job.)

The military provides them with an education. If they are in the military and want to go to college, the military will support them. Granted we do waste money on a lot of stuff in the military like new advances it that billion dollar prototype jet that was just grounded.

Plus the military made tons of cut backs already. People that left the military can't get back in for the most part
reinlisting is really hard once you leave.

Plus a lot of the budget is for security purposes. You know countries like China have organizations set up that try to break into our national defense system 24/7. Now how will we protect information without being 2 steps ahead?

Did you also know that the US is the most hated country? It is. So we are constantly under threats from terrorists. Would you like another 9-11? Well without military protection there would be about one every single day.

the military also takes part in relief efforts in other countries and ours. So when natural disasters happen we are the first responders anywhere. That costs money. Unless you want to start a business and do it all for free and pay your workers nothing, then it can't happen.

Also just take a look at how large our budget is. 47% is sounds like a lot. But it really isn't.

Invest in business? Small or large? To what, export their jobs overseas? It isn't the governments job to invest in business. Its businesses job to invest in business.

Well your numbers are way off if your talking about the USA tax dollar. Most are money is payed out to Social security SSI medicaid medicare.t But the United state federal government main thing is supposed to to protect the boarders of the country. Now The government borrows 40 cent out of each dollar that should make you mad. In the end the youngster will pay a high price for the sins of others.

TO protect the border usually is easer if you have your army station at home, not spending 4 trillion a day on bases in other countries. Trust me that's why I joined the Air Force so long ago.. So I could go hang out in Japan and that is what I did for 4 out of 6 of my years. All on my fellow Americans Tax dollars. Thanks by the way for that.

Well are total budget is 3.2 trillion per year. I was stationed in Germany for over 2 years an miss assigned states side twice i got only after 3 years worked on ground to air systems. i had working knowledge of Hawk, Nikey, Stinger, Redeye, Chapparrel, Vulcan made spec 5 in 2 years. I finally got feed up with the miss-assignments an got out. early. back then the military was in a very big mess. Sad to say it going to happen I had to pull Sargent of the guard one a month an wound up finding 2 suicides in guard towers. We had over 30 division when i was in now were down to ten an there fighting strength is a a third of what is was in the 1980. A division has 60,000 back then now it 20,000 how much more do you want to cut.

Waste of money. They aren't even able to stop the Taliban or North-Korea, and when they go to war (Iraq), it's only for there own gain, and not to free the people.

We could end them in 1 minute. We just decide to use the humane way of settling things.

We didn't start anything. The US alone is a neutral country. We don't go to war for no apparent reason. We have to have a justifiable cause to go to war.
