Subject: Is the United States Military Budget a Good Deal for Americans?
Today (Sunday) is MY weekly, TWO-HOUR radio show. It airs at 3:06 PM Eastern (2:06 PM Central, 1:06 PM Mountain, and 12:06 PM Pacific).
The show is SPONSORED (but not owned) by Gun Owners of America and DownsizeDC.org, Inc. So please don't hold them responsible for today's thesis. Ready?
Here's today's thesis: Our military budget is a colossal waste of money that actually makes us less secure.
Do you agree or disagree?

You see, I'm curious: How do we decide how much we need to spend for national defense? How do we, as individual citizens, determine if politicians are spending the right amount?
What is the rationale for the spending they do in DC? Do we just trust the politicians we like the best (or hate the least)?
Let's reason together. Please, use the phone number or email address, provided above, to participate. I want to hear from you.
I'll also tell my
Tim Russert story, as well as the insight I received from Russert. If you're interested in political campaign strategy you'll want to hear that story.
On top of that, I'll have a Gun Owners Update -- wait till you hear what the BATFE administrators want their staff to think about when they come face-to-face with American citizens!
