How your money is being spent

Approx 50% of the federal government's discretionary spending is spent on military projects. Millions in contracts area let each day.

Take a look:

If we're really the beacon of liberty in the world, why do we have to spend soooo much on defense. I realize "freedom isn't free" -- but if we didn't piss off 75% of the world's population, we might save a little dough.

I wonder how much of that money is defrauded by defense contractors.

Money is not real. Only a means of controling people. Our system is based on a false premise of belief in an abstract concept of money. It no longer works as a took to run a society. Money measures debt, another abstract concept.

Meant to say it no longer works as a tool to run society.
