Well see, the military industrial complex exists so that there is no such thing as over extending our military.I wonder what our founding fathers would think... They created the smallest government the world have ever seen with protections like the constitution and bill of rights that also restricted this tiny governments power and influence. Now we have the largest and most powerful government the world has ever seen with 800+ military bases all over the world that takes 30% of its citizens earnings outright and piles taxes upon taxes on top of it all. It seems to me like something went completely awry. Many empires have ended due to over extension militarily but hey who cares.
The founding fathers would have hard ons harder than when the hottest house slave is dusting the floorboards if they could see this.
