Welcome to the 4th Reich part 1.

I've been perusing the site and this is something I've seen

Making Our Military Strong Again?!?!

What the fuck does that even mean?

Here are some facts, albeit not 'alternative facts' aka not shit I make up.

Here's how much of our discretionary budget goes to the military:

Over half of the discretionary budget goes to the military, although it's more than this graph shows because I think you should include Veteran's benefits (6%) into this figure at the very least. So at least 60% of all discretionary funding goes to the military. (No mention of unfunded wars in this graph.)

How does the US stack up against the planet earth?
From Fake News aka people who disagree with Der Furher
Well not the planet earth, but the next 13 highest spending countries don't spend as much on the military as we do COMBINED! You might notice that France, UK, Japan, Germany, South Korea etc. are our allies. With Trump being in you might want to throw Russia in as an ally.
President Trump will end the defense sequester and submit a new budget to Congress outlining a plan to rebuild our military. We will provide our military leaders with the means to plan for our future defense needs.
This quote is right from So I'm guessing Trump needs more money for the military. I wonder why, is it to have shiny new tanks driving down Pennsylvania Ave for the State of the Union? We spend more than China by roughly 6x! This raises the question, if we spend so much of our fucking money on the military, but (in Trump's world) the military is so fucking horrible, why in the world would we throw more money at them? They'll just fucking waste it right?

I'm wondering if Trump and company will bring up 'data' like we have fewer ships in the navy than in 1860. If so, I'll pit one destroyer against the entire 1860 US navy.

Maybe our military needs more money, I want to know why. I want a justification, because the numbers I see tell me different.
