We need to invest a significant amount of money into our U.S. military to completely deter any threat directed at our country in the next decade. The communist leaders of China and Russia has indicated that they want nothing less than to take over the United States, its people, and its economy, and will do everything they can to upgrade their nuclear and military technology, coupled with their existing information war against us via Internet sabotage and other forms of violence. But in the end, they plan on using military armaments against us and we need to have the military equipment and technology not only to repel them, but to strike back and prevent further escalation into existing conflicts.
War is useless in this day and age. We have proven that capitalism coupled with individual liberty can transform humanity into a positive, collusive force that will enrich every individual with the life they deserve, including the environment, travel security, and overall peace of mind. The threat of military action and force towards people must always be rejected, and deterred when necessary. Without the resources to successfully deter such aggression, we will never survive as a country that provides the beacon of light and hope to the planet.
