They need to fix the military and give it a more locally transparent idea. Current military makes us look weak and scattered in thoughts and beliefs. Pathetic really. I used to think that stuff was badass, not so much anymore.

@97ZSCZ3 from Nevada answered…19hrs

The money should go towards the troops and less towards the military industrial complex.

A strong military is important. Investing in mental health and environmental issues (as it drives global instability) are also important.

Perhaps we should examine the current levels of government military spending and weigh the strategic costs of increasing or decreasing spending.

The amount of spending is fine, but it should be all to protect the United States, and not be given to any other country.

@97ZMQJQ from Missouri answered…2 days

Decrease, only increase when planning on going to war or helping allies.

The quality of equipment and training in the military should be increased, but the population of the military should be reduced.

(Full disclosure, I am still a member of the KY Army National Guard) Increase what we pay our service members and fix the damn VA.

@97ZJSKN from Indiana answered…2 days

Decrease, but only by $200M. Regulation needs place on what they spend on. More funding for people and innovation, not ammunition waste.

 @David-Cooper-KY from Kentucky answered…2 days

(I cannot truly give an unbiased answer as I am still a member of the Kentucky Army National Guard.) Increase pay and benefits for service members and fix the damn Department of VA.

@97ZHDS7 from New York answered…2 days

I do understand the need for the military funding, but it does not need to be super extreme, other things need more funding

@97ZCS79Libertarian from California answered…3 days

We need to reduce the waste spent in the military budget. I would not mind increasing spending if it is needed to keep our military the strongest in the world.

 @@Jason2024 from California answered…3 days

Decrease,; I have nothing but respect for veterans, but we still need to keep our country's military base away from other countries. Endless nuclear wars and globalism are neoconservatism at their finest!

@97Z5WSL from Texas answered…4 days

Our military should be FULLY funded, but military spending to support Ukraine & other foreign actions should end immediately

@97Z2BKYRepublican from Wisconsin answered…4 days

Decrease spending till women are out of combat roles and LGBTs are no longer being advertised as a mockery of the U.S. military.

The U.S. Military should always be the creme of the crop of the world militaries... However, with a near trillion-dollar spending budget, most of that is surely not being used. Sure, a couple hundred billion maybe, but not over seven hundred billion dollars. Plus, we are in MASSIVE debt. We're spending money we don't have on our military.
