How should the government raise the money needed to pay for national defence?

A flat tax rate. I believe in general the people who have the most possessions also have the most to lose.

This is a little off topic, but do you ever think "national defense" is a bit of a misnomer in the U.S.? The vast majority of our military conflicts in the last 100 years have not been on American soil.

I'll accept the misnomer to keep the fighting elsewhere.

Fighting the enemy elsewhere is a good thing.

Good? Meh.
Reasonable taxes are OK, IMO.

I do. I think it is a misappropriation of the concept and is mostly (if not totally) intended only to produce profits for the MIC.

For starters the democrats could approve the spending bill that's waiting for them right now! It's democrats ready to shut down the government later today - and they are blocking military funding - as well as tossing those prescious DACA kids under the bus.

So you support government spending. Good. Where does the money come from?

We are already spending too much on our inept military. Conservatives need to stop being afraid of anyone who isn't white and learn to get along with other cultures.

Get to your point Vic. You know perfectly well where the money comes from. We bilk minorities for everything they have, sell body parts from Planned Parenthood and make up the rest from taxes.

Have conservatives pay for it, they seem to be afraid of anyone who isn't white and demand the government get rid of anyone of a different culture or color.
