Dear, "Whoever the Next US President May Be":
Although America spends more money on the military than the next seven countries combined, we also spend more on health care than the next nine countries combined. As a country we spend so much money because technology is getting more advanced and therefore more expensive. By cutting back our budget on the military we are leaving hard workers unemployed and leaving the safety of our citizens questioned. If our military wasn't so intense and competitive then our nation wouldn't be nearly as safe and comfortable that it is.
The truth is that the work is fast evolving and military expenses are extremely competitive. Other countries won't back down because we are in a budget crisis. They will instead feed off of our budget cuts and increase their budgets to defeat us. The military is the back bone of our nation and to be stronger our military must be larger.
