    Well, we still spend $1 trillion a year on defense (the budgets of the Defense, VA and Homeland Security departments combined, but still excluding interest payments on war debt and unfunded agency outlays).

    That is way too much money.

    Can we cut such outlays in half?

    Could a McKinsey or Bain figure out how to protect our shores for half oof that?

    And is a permanent, standing, professional ever-mobiulized military really what our Founding Fathers envisioned (no, they detested, loathed and reviled standing militaries).
