I'm in favor of a strong military and state of the art defense weaponry. However, too much history points to gross mismanagement of the gazillion dollars given to DOD every year. Influence peddling to congress sucks the life out of democracy, it is graft and inspires corruption. Ethical and budget-conscious leadership being held accountable is just good business. I don't believe audits and transparency done right will expose any trade secrets and I want proper management of my tax dollars.
