Y'all are nuts!
A demobilized army is what gave congress control over the executives war fancy.
It's what's kept any meaningful progressive action from being implemented by the enormous costs born by the citizenry.
It's the largest single contributor of green house gas emissions.
It's socialized fascism.
It's fascists character bleeds into and influences the civilian cultere.

I can go on but why would anyone want a 'strong' military. Aren't you worried we might get a lunatic president someday who has Napoleonic tendencies?

Oh.... wait a minute...
