I'm Shocked That The Country Agrees with Me

From a New York Times poll
Given the choice of cutting military, Social Security or Medicare spending as a way to reduce the overall budget, 45 percent chose military cuts, compared with those to Social Security (17 percent) or Medicare (21 percent.)
I often worry that Americans really want to keep engaging in foreign adventures and would prefer that the Department of Defense be renamed the Department of Permanent War.  These results give me hope that we will return to the idea of a robust defense but leave the empire building to the French and English.
