We could cut our military budget to an eighth of what it is now, and we would still have the largest military in the world. It's time that we stop trying to be everyone's parents. The views of Modernism crept into American politics and caused Americans to believe that democracy is the only way. Democracy is wonderful, but we can't choose a way of life for other people. Let them govern themselves. We don't need to isolate ourselves, but we need to stop trying to oversee everything. Who put Saddam Hussein in power? Who put Fidel Castro in power? We need to take a step back. Cut the military budget significantly. We will still have the largest military in the world and be as safe as we can be.
