Because it is the huge cash cow that Congress milk to feed their supporters and contributors. It is a massive pig's trough that bleeds our money and puts it in the pocket of a scant few wealthy people.

Have a great day!

Both candidates get the seal of approval from the MIC.

Cool, so a Nobel Peace Laureate and a potential Nobel Peace Laureate promise us more of what we could have already guessed, the endless squandering of our Blood Treasure and the bleeding of our Treasury in a series of never ending proxy wars of attrition, and kinetic actions, et cetera. Drone on dudes.

Not terribly fond of the Marine Corp (longstanding institutional racism) , but Smedly Butler was my kinda guy.

Have a great day!

At least the left would get out there and try to hold a Romney presidency accountable. They're practically urging President Obama on. People who were carrying Make Love Not War signs four years ago are practically chanting USA! USA! USA! today. If he unilaterally attacked Iran tomorrow, I bet he'd rake in more campaign money than ever. They'd be cheering in the streets.

They both favor increasing the military budget. As O said, we spend more than the next ten countries in the world already. Nothing to be proud of whether you are red or blue.

Your right, Romney hasn't yet had the chance to launch a 120 cruise missiles against a country, Libya, that represented no imminent threat (War Powers Act) to the United States in a single night, March 11, 2011,then bomb it for months on end, and fund an insurgency populated by foreign mercenaries to bring down the government of a sovereign nation so the global elites could avail themselves of its resources and treasury. Mittens can't take credit for the roughly 70 percent of US Troop deaths in the Afghanistan misadventure that have taken place since January 2009, think Splurge, sorry Surge. Nope Willard hasn't been carrying on a covert war with Yemen for well over a year. Moreover, he hasn't taken out women and children, men too, with drone launched ordnance. Nor has he implemented a series of ever more punitive sanctions against and kept a ramped up naval in presence in close proximity to a signatory to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (that'd be Iran). He didn't sign the FAA Reauthorization Act, which will put 30,000 drones in US skies by 2020 or successfully defend the indefinite detention of US Citizens, Section 1021 of the 2012 NDAA, in Federal Court. Oh and he didn't send US troops a few weeks back to the Jordanian-Syrian border, nor did he order our troops into the current joint forces exercise with Israel.

I once had a conversation with an avowed Christian coworker about the military. I invoked the "cookie" analogy, where every cookie represented $10 billion. The military received about 50 every year. One cookie, I suggested, would solve the poverty problem. He shrugged. "I'd rather have a strong military," he said, as if giving one cookie to the poor would mean World War 3 and us being routed. So much for Christian charity. And both these candidate wear their faiths on their sleeves.

That's telling, because if one avowed Christian coworker held this point of view, you can surmise with complete certainty that every other avowed Christian on the face of the planet holds the same point of view.
