Big Spender Trump Pumps Up Military

We spend more on our military than the next eight nations combined, and that includes Russia and China. We could cut military spending by 90 percent, and we would still have the largest military on earth!

And it's not like we're putting all that money to good use. We currently have $181 million worth of tanks that are collecting dust in the desert, and which the army itself neither wants nor needs.

If any "fiscal conservative" were serious about balancing the budget, they would consider slashing the military budget first and foremost. That would be their top priority.

Yet out "Dear Leader" Trump insists on increasing military spending rather than decreasing it.

But of course, we have to trust him because he's so "good" with money. He's such a savvy businessman. That's why he managed to bankrupt a casino, to steal a joke from Lewis Black.

Seriously, I would love to hear an explanation from the "fiscal conservatives" and self-proclaimed libertarians who voted for him as to how he's reducing the size and scope of big government with his big military spending.

Let's face it: Trump's just as incompetent with our country's finances as he is with his personal finances.
