10. I don't see where we need a "defense" budget bigger than the 2000 level

Which was $350 billion, IIRC.

We should go lower than $350 billion. There are long-term plans to buy a trillion dollars worth of Cold-War interceptor jet airplanes that needs to be cut to about zero. There is a class of amphibious ships that the Navy cannot even get launched due to delays. It is obvious that we won't miss those ships if we never deploy them. We have not needed them yet.
