I don't necessarily know that saying 15% of that budget could be 1/10th of 1% of the economy is excessive or out of proportion.

Of course, I'm not saying spending that much on defense is necessarily wise or great, but..
I've always thought it's strange how most Americans have no problem with having such a enormous socialist military but suddenly it's "evil socialism" for the government to protect the health of it's citizens with universal healthcare.

Not generalizing but it seems to be a common view.
