"More Big Army"
The more I think about this idea, the less I like it. I could imagine forms in which I’d support something along these lines, but the budgetary costs involved are staggering and the strategic rationale is thin. The political rationale, by contrast, is clear but also kind of tawdry and misguided. I don’t think you’re ever going to convince voters that the Democrats are the authentic party of militaristic nationalism.
