Is it enumerated in the Constitution that we should spend excessively on the military?

Well your ignorance is getting the best of you. Perhaps you should ask your Dad or Grandfather. Do a little research on Reagan. Bush and Bush.

Its enumerated that we should spend for one for defense. Somehow "defense" has turned into "wage two small scale wars overseas, and one large one, and win."

Notice there is no plan on actually paying for it all......

Apparently deficits don't matter when it comes to the military industrial complex that the GOP supports.
I don't believe in more defense spending, but I do believe there should be more combat related special compensations. And before anybody talking about tax payer, I am a tax payer, and I wish I can CHOOSE how my tax gets spent.

Nether side cares about anything other than keeping power.
I don't consider liberals and Democrats to be the same. Most of the ones in office are just as warmongering IMO.

This is the kind of hypocrite see that lefties like the OP have. This administration, like all other ministrations, has been engaged in war mongering for a long time. It is basically bushes third and fourth terms. And yet and yet the left is silent on all of this until when the Republicans start pushing for more defense spending.
