I completely understand your reservations. Your opinion, as an American citizen, is both highly respected and valued. As I'm sure you're no doubt aware, War just happens to be an Internet username. I can assure you that the person behind it is a capable, respectable, productive member of our great country. I have the utmost confidence in their ability to serve the American people with pride and a commitment to what is right, fair, and just.
Though your comment was mostly in jest, I would like to take the opportunity to speak on the subject of our nation's great military as I have not had the opportunity to do so until now. As a man raised by very conservative parents, I have been and will continue to be at heart a pacifist. I believe whole heartedly that with a little more effort and with hearts full of compassion and respect for each other, many of our world's problems could be solved without bloodshed.
That said though, I believe that it is our nation's right to have a standing military for the purpose of protecting our interests here at home, as well as the interests of our friends and allies abroad. And what a fine military it is, with ranks full of hard working men and women equipped with some of the best technology known to man. It has been a key driver in our economy through job creation and technological development and I can only hope that it will continue to be so under my leadership.
That said, I am concerned about some of the military spending that is allegedly out of control. It is my goal to take a good hard look at our finances and hopefully with the help of our congressmen and military leaders, we can find a way to trim some financial fat here and there and reinvest the money in our schools and infrastructure. While some people might raise alarm bells, warning of "budget cuts," the American people have my word that I will do everything in my power to ensure that our military will continue to be well equipped, well staffed, and a continual source of pride for this great nation.
