It looks more and more likely that the Donald Trump train and the GOP establishment bus will collide at the GOP convention. With more independents and more Democrats jumping on the Trump train, there is no better time than now to address a core GOP problem: the Military-Industrial Complex (MIC). It is totally out of control, it is inherently anti-America, and it's time to fix it with Donald Trump!
1. What is the MIC?
Here is an excerpt from Wikipedia - Military-Industrial Complex:
2. Why is our military so big?
Because the MIC and some career politicians have been bedfellows for decades! Specifically,
3. Is the MIC out-of-control?
Yes, it is, totally! Specifically,
Let me elaborate on each ...
3.1 The MIC spends too much!
The pie-chart below shows our government's discretionary spending in 2015. The military spending was 55% (vs. less than 1% on food stamps)!
Note: if you are concerned about our government's mandatory spending, which is far bigger than discretionary spending, read: Democratic Socialism vs. Democratic Imperialism.
3.2 The MIC wastes too much!
Watch the video below.
Needless to say, the mess at the Pentagon is much worse today than it was on 9/10/2001, thanks largely to the Iraq War. Two examples:
Two more specific, and easily understandable, examples:
4. Is the MIC anti-America?
Yes, it is, inherently! One main reason: our military is no longer for defense, but for offense! At this pace of out-of-control military spending and its hugely self-destructive nature, soon we will have no country left to defend!
How is it hugely self-destructive? The MIC has created two big messes:
More broadly, two points:
5. President Washington warned us against big military!
6. President Eisenhower warned us against the MIC!
Watch the video below.
7. The MIC is bad for our military service men and women!
The MIC is bad not only for America, but also for our service men and women! Two recent examples of our top politicians abusing our military:
More broadly, how do our top politicians actually view our military? Two examples:
8. Is Trump the solution?
We must fix our political system, as I have suggested (Solution for America (Version 3)), starting with a great peaceful transformational President!
None of the GOP candidates can possibly fix the MIC, except Donald Trump!
Trump has shown some promising signs. Two examples:
Yes, on foreign policy, it may well take some isolationist policies to end America's endless obsession with war!
Let’s give Trump a chance!
Second only to socialism/communism which will inevitably bankrupt America, the MIC is the most powerful and dangerous force capable of destroying America from the inside out.
Donald Trump is the best GOP candidate to possibly end our fixation with the MIC.
Going beyond the GOP, the only candidate who sounds better than Donald Trump on the MIC is Bernie Sanders, who, unfortunately, happens to be a de facto communist!
Go Trump 2016!
