Does The U.S. Need A Twelve Step Program?


Is the U.S. Enabling Socialism Everywhere But Here

Is it possible that the huge U.S. Defense Budget and the involvement of the U.S. militarily in wide flung areas overseas is enabling socialism in those countries who rely and depend upon the U.S. to defend them militarily. I.e. is the military budget of the United states subsidizing the defense of, for example all of the NATO countries, allowing them to use what would otherwise be military/defense funds to provide services to their citizens that are not available in the United States. And then vice-versa can the United States ever adequately provide those services at home without other countries picking up their share of the load to defend their own borders let alone against such a diverse perceived threat as ISIS/Al Quaeda? What would the European Countries do if the U.S. Unilaterally pulled all of its forces out of NATO? What would happen to their political and economic systems?

About safrisri

I was a school teacher until retirement. I have taught at all educational levels from pre-school to college. My college degree is general science which I arrived at after 5 years and 5 different majors. A degree as it turns out, almost as valuable and in demand as one in Neo-Bulgarian Mythology. I have been around education for around 40 years and can remember when teaching was a pleasant, happy and creative job and our schools were the same. Now I'm the guy sitting on the porch with an opinion on everything.
