We spend nearly as much paying the interest on our debt as we do on defense. Now that the deficit under Obama is 1 Trillion + per year the interest payments on the debt is going to eclipse what we spend on defense. Entitlement programs like Medicare & Medicaid, and Social Security are where the bulk of our money is spent. It is going to be even worse once the full health care bill kicks in.
I'd also like to point out that nearly half of what is considered defense spending is not spent on defense. It is spent on the health care and pensions for veterans and not on rockets, bullets,guns, and bombs.
