I feel like the argument ("my taxe money I get to decide what to do with it") doesn't actually work though, b/c that means even if we pass laws to say no more drones, if the really wealthy, traditionally conservative republicans, decide they want to have drones they could just say don't use my taxes for humane things...use it for developing more wmd's or more advanced drones or more internet spying so he can get even more wealthy.

how about no wasting taxpayer money on foreign wars and, aid to countries that essentially hate us?
our government does seem much more interested in sending the money to other countries first then spending on important stuff like infrastructure

Mot people far overestimate how much we spend on foreign aid. At $38 billion, it is less than 1% of the entire Federal budget. The wars though, that is another story. A very recent study [link] finds that ultimately, Iraq and Afghanistan will cost between $4 and $6 TRILLION, with $2 trillion already spent on the military campaign themselves. By way of comparison, the entire national debt is $17 trillion. Stop the wars and the budget deficit problem disappears.

exactly, as i recall every time the US tries to pull out of Afghanistan certain parties in the government fight it endlessly (example giving deadline for withdrawal, turns into well eventually) I am not talking about foreign aid overall i am talking about giving military aid to places like Pakistan, Egypt and, others that essentially have a policy of we'll behave as long as you give us assistance. what you want to send food and, medical supplies...we want guns.
