What turns me off to the republicans is their sacred cow of the military. There is so much waste that happens, but if you cut spending, the pentagon puts it on programs that affect the troops instead of stopping creation of a fighter jet that will never be used. They could close bases around the world and they could stop fighting endless wars. Instead they put the bulk of the cuts on the troops and then the news goes wild with stories about how they put their lives on the line for us and how we can never cut anything from the military or families will starve and alqeada will hit us non stop.
Right now we have a big inefficient military. I would rather have a small efficient military that is run like any other business. republicans should walk the talk and actually cut military spending and maybe then democrats would cut entitlements. I don't think either of those will happen.
