Good thing we didn't take his advice

Bill Hobbs has a two page memo from 1984 written by John Kerry that would have ended funding for just about every important weapons system that we are using today to fight the War on Terror. What was he thinking?
Congress, rather than having the moral courage to challenge the Reagan Administration, has given Ronald Reagan almost every military request he has made, no matter how wasteful, no matter how useless, no matter how dangerous.
The biggest defense buildup since World War II has not given us a better defense. Americans feel more threatened by the prospect of war, not less so. And our national priorities become more and more distorted as the share of our country’s resources devoted to human needs diminishes.
