Forum Post: I think we can all agree that the military bases overseas (except maybe S. Korea and Taiwan) need to close

The other countries should be allowed to become self sufficient in their defense as we can no longer be the world police. But, by comparison, Our nation as a whole is broke and we need to pay our bills. I believe that the citizenry needs to sacrifice as well, not just the 1%. We come from a lineage where people took risks to walk across the country via the Oregon trail to find a better life. The Government did not pay for it, it was through their own hard work and left to their own devices that they made their life. It was not comfortable, but they were self sufficient. unfortunately OWS does not support the idea of self sufficiency. They want the 1% to pay their way and help those who will not help themselves.

Taiwan and S.Korea need to stay open. North Korea is a bed of bad stuff that needs to be watched.

No, I can agree that ALL of our military bases need to be shut down. Meddling in every country's business has brought us to the edge of ruin.

Political science Professor John Mearsheimer provides some interesting food for thought regarding the military bases overseas.
