Defense spending has been declining as a share of the budget and as a share of GDP for the past several decades. Meanwhile, entitlement spending (and the cost of the debt) is exploding. Cutting the defense budget in order to fund domestic programs that aren't essential, is foolish, particularly when it's coming from people who haven't even figured out why we have a fiscal problem in the first place.
