Isn't it about time that our country stopped pretending that it is still the great power that it was when the empire existed. Are we spending too much of our time and resources attempting to police the globe? If the money spent on fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq was spent securing and protecting our borders and citizens would it be spent more effectively? Would this money and our service personnel be used to better effect to combat drug importation, people trafficing and illegal immigration? I don't know the answers and I think its fairly obvious that the politicians of all parties don't either. Suggestions on a voting slip please.
