I have concerns about his ability to deal with International and Military Issues. As much as I'd like to stay out of other peoples affairs, I'm not sure we can.. We've been doing it so long the world's come to expect it, and in many cases demand it... If we can go back to the days of walking softly and carrying a big stick, I'm all for it. But the stick has to be big enough, and our resolve strong enough the worlds bad guy are terrified we 'll use it...
Back to something he does understand
This deal will reportedly cut spending by only slightly over $900 billion over 10 years. But we will have a $1.6 trillion deficit after this year alone, meaning those meager cuts will do nothing to solve our unsustainable spending problem. This also assumes the cuts are real cuts and not the same old Washington smoke and mirrors game of spending less than originally projected so you can claim the difference as a ‘cut.
For decades, politicians have promised future restraint in exchange for hikes in the debt limit. We are always told that we must act immediately to avoid a crisis. But time and time again, politicians reveal themselves to be untrustworthy, and we soon find ourselves in a crisis being led by the same folks who wish only to maintain the status quo.
