    Yes, but thats not what I'm refering too. I don't mean pull back military and cancel jobs, I mean pull them back to use them on domestic aid projects? Like rebuilding/disaster relief/ combating gangs/ kissing babies sort of happy stuff. I mean the works, everything.

    Bring everyone home to take care of the drug problem? Bringing all of us home would just create more problems...

    Yes we're in Afghanistan right now fighting the war on terror. We're in South Korea stopping North Korea from coming down, we're in other countries too because they asked us to be there and to help them out. If we pulled our troops out of those countries for a year or two then it would be total chaos.
    Also, how do you expect a military of close to a million help the DEA fight drugs? You want us running combat patrols though the streets of high drug traffic? Kicking in doors of known drug dealers? Trust me that ain't gonna stop people from dealing drugs.
    You have to look at other foreign interests before you bring our troops home. In a way we're fighting the drug war here in Afghanistan, cause anytime we find poppy or maryjane we burn it right there on the spot, trust me I know I've done it lol

    I'm a Conservative, and I've been saying it for years. We need to get out of alot of these countries and use that manpower and equipment to secure our borders. Imagine if we spent 1/8 of our military budget on education... it would make a huge difference.

    Well, that's the true question isn't it? I live in South Texas and go the border towns often for work, and I can tell you that it is an escalating problem. Unfortunately, resolution would mean tighter controls on the border access and crossing and also on legal/illegal entrants to the country. This is a huge area of contention in the US and there are large opinionated groups on both sides of the pro/con fence.

    I wish I had an answer, but I don't. I'd love for our military/gov't to come in and fix it, but the "fix" is multi-faceted and contested by a lot of our citizens, so its really tough. Until then, I've subscribed to the "who has an AR-15" thread and taking care of my homestead :)

    More money does not yield better education. A true conservative would amend your statement to say "Imagine if we returned 1/8 of our military budget to the tax payer... it would make a huge difference." :)

    Because here in America, it's unconstitutional to use the Armed Forces against fellow citizens. Like it or not, most of the drug dealers (and producers and users) are citizens and have the same rights that the rest of us have. That's the difference between being a citizen and a subject.

    Maybe in Stafford, VA where the schools are nice. In my city, alot of schools don't have the funding they need, and many students can't afford school supplies or lunch.
    Sure, I would like lower taxes and less government, but alot of parents here are epic failures, so the government has to step up and raise their kids at school. We have kids in 6th grade and up that can't even read. So yeah, more money would mean better education in alot of ways.

    Even though im not poltical, i agree with you on this. I have heard horror stories and experienced for myself what happens when money is not pumped into the education system. Bad things happen like the sad situation stated. More money in education would make a difference, any that say it wouldn't is fooling themselves.
