51% of the federal budget, or around 0.5 TRILLION dollars per YEAR is spent on the US military. (Ref: Wikipedia)
Isn’t it funny that the same rich bastards who fight against every tax and constantly complain about how we are over-taxed are the same people who are pro-war and pro-military? They want to grow military spending every year and yet they constantly whing about how our government spends too much!
The only way you can reconcile that is by being totally divorced from reality.
Pro-military means pro-tax. Deal with it.
