Ok guys, this random thought process came to my head and I'm curious about other people's thoughts. IF someone like Obama is elected and we begin immediate withdrawal, I would expect defense spending to decrease right? Or would the funds start being used in different ways. For example, my biggest thought was: right now the Army probably is the most well-funded and is the topic of attention due to the effects of combat on ground forces. WELL, the Air Force has a bad issue with aging aircraft, a bad one. It's one that will require a MINIMUM of $20 billion a year extra to even attempt to begin fixing the problem with new aircraft and moderization (or so I've read). Would this be seen as an issue important to someone like Obama as far as military goes (if he should care about such minor details or his potential future cabinet) or would a new administration even have an impact on inter-military spending. Basically, I worry about job security with a potential democratic president, but I'm wondering how much so! Rant over.
