Jack Hunter: Conservatives' Military-Industrial Complex

A video by Jack Hunter (a.k.a.: the Southern Avenger) from The American Conservative:



Many Conservatives like to play lip service to "limited government," yet apply their skepticism of "big government" only to government programs (such as Social Security and Medicare) and to divisions such as education and healthcare. But they rarely apply their skepticism to the military, which receives the most taxpayer money—often w...asting it with fruitless endeavors

Those who cherish limited government (be they conservative or liberatrian) must reject all forms of big government and wasteful spending, especially when it comes to the military-industrial complex.
