    Which do you think ? Lets try to add up the costs,

    Military/CIA adventurism has very long tentacles involving a lot of Corp interests that evolve to cost even more money in "keeping us safe" from the results of our own interventionist actions.

    Some aspects of social programs seem to have a revolving door spreading or escalating costs as generations spread the 'dependent lifestyles'.


    So which costs us more?

    Do either of the above save us costs and problems?


    We might be suprised at the results, but republicans blame all of it on social and safety net programs and Dems overall are just happy to continue the status quo even where the Military is involved.

    This looks like a decent if high level look at Federal spending.
