    🤔 HOW STRONG’ ”SHOULD’’ OUR MILITARY BE? 🤔 I'm of the strong opinions that our military forces could be more substantial, but currently, its a great start! Increase the defense budget! (Si vis pacem, para bellum ) is a Latin adage translated as "If you want peace, prepare for war". Both chambers of Congress are set to consider bipartisan bills next week that would authorize roughly $731 billion in discretionary defense spending for fiscal year 2021, down slightly from $740 billion in FY2020, and enact a variety of defense policies in what is known as the annual National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). When Congress eventually passes appropriations legislation to fund that spending, it will likely ensure that the U.S. continues to lead the world in military spending through 2021. But while the U.S. spends the most on defense in the world, the number of active-duty military personnel is the third-largest in the world. I remain firmly in support of President Trump and a strong military. (Si vis pacem, para bellum ) is a Latin adage translated as "If you want peace, prepare for war". Q 7.17.20. SP
