Romney mum on proposed military cuts

September 29, 2012
The Marietta Times

It is curious that we have heard nothing from the Romney/Ryan campaign about reductions in spending in the military. It seems that the military gets a free pass in their budget-cutting frenzy to reduce federal government spending. Romney's stated plan for military spending is to link this spending to GDP-without any attempt to assess personnel versus weapon systems or to evaluate among weapons systems. Our military should be spending funds on nimble, well trained forces such as the Navy Seals, to fight terrorism-not expensive weapons systems designed for the cold war of the past.
