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.
