I believe that we will be in a state of perpetual war until we take the profit out of it. We need to limit profits on arms and pharmaceuticals or we will bankrupt our all ready broke government. We are the only advanced country on earth that does not restrict these monopolies and they have gained so much financial power the government has lost control of them. Health care takes around 17% of our national treasure, approximately double what the rest of the world spends. And they are healthier than we are. We spend over 600 billion a year to defend ourselves against non-existent enemies and we can't even get an honest audit of the Pentagon, where it is suspected up to 2 trillion may be unaccounted for. Can't tell if you can't count it. That is how out of control this spending is . Somebody is getting rich, figure that out, take the profits back and then let's regulate both industries to make sense for our economy and country. We have all the expenditures and still have 50 million people in poverty. That's crazy.
