Every 4-8 years our government changes. Policies become old and new again. Recycled. Right now Obama has stripped our military, funding, and closed bases and programs. DH and I (military) just shrug our heads when people complain because we know, history will not not repeat, a Republican will be in office next. They will open bases back up, give us more money and programs. And probably send us to war, which will make our country rich again.
The pattern was set long ago. Why debate and get upset?
