Barney Frank and Ron Paul: Cut Military Spending
Tea Party favorite Ron Paul and Liberal Democrat Barney Frank both want to slash the US military’s big budget. They join us, together.

Ron Paul, ’08 GOP presidential contender, is a conservative libertarian leading light and tea party hero. Barney Frank is a no-apologies liberal Democrat.
They agree on one big thing. America’s giant military budget must be cut, in a giant way: a trillion-dollar cut over the next decade.
We can’t afford our own security policy, say Frank and Paul. And it’s not making us secure. It’s time for a new strategy, they say. Time to put the vast Pentagon budget on the table, and start slashing
This hour, On Point: conservative Ron Paul and liberal Barney Frank go after American defense spending.

One of the remaining few!
The way to start is to pull out of Afghanistan and the Middle East. We have to stop policing the World and worry about our own problems.

The war in Afghanistan is sucking our resources, in a similar manner the Soviet Union exhausted theirs in the '80s.

actually, more of their point was having bases where there's no longer a threat or need such as japan, germany, france.
it was very eye-opening that the reason these socialist countries can afford health care, child care, full unemployment, 3 mos vacation a year for their citizens is because AMERICA is the one paying for their military and defense
Without America paying their bills they couldn't sustain their socialist ways.
America needs to pay for americans...
