A strong military is essential? How big does it need to be? 15 carriers? Occupying every country in the world, dropping bombs at the drop of the hat?
Sorry, I used to be on the "strong military" train. It is not sustainable and only service to rile up other nations. It needs be cut back (over time) to about half of what it is today. That is unless the Tea Party crowd is willing to raise taxes a full 100% of what it is now to support the budget devouring military.

I think I would agree with all that and find myself being more libertarian. Early on, I thought Palin could be a breath of fresh air and a "regular folk" people could relate to. Boy was I wrong and the more she speaks the more I run away screaming. But I do find her hawt when she's not talking.
That is why the movement has purposely not picked a "leader" or tried to become a party. It's always wanted to be a philosophy. When you pick a leader then there is a face to the movement that can be attacked and divided. Which is precisely what you see here as Palin is out there speaking and becoming more of a defacto face of the movement.
I don't understand what you are trying to say?
