I'm all for cutting military spending and closing some bases. However, Jill Stein's Green Party proposals in this regard seem rather extreme and unrealistic.
Cutting military spending by 75 percent in two years.
Closing all overseas military bases.
Disbanding NATO and all military alliances.
Ban US Arms Exports .
Abolish the CIA, NSA, US Army School of the Americas, and All US Agencies of Covert Warfare.
Abolish the IMF and World Bank .
Withdraw from the World Trade Organization, NAFTA, and all other "corporate-managed" trade agreements.
Establish an internationalist social tariff system that equalizes trade by accounting for the differences among countries in wages, social benefits, environmental conditions, and political rights.
Build a Global Green Deal financed by the US tax payer for universal access to primary education, adequate food, clean water and sanitation, preventive health care, and family planning services for every human being on Earth.
Okay there is more. I'll stop now. Ask yourself though: Are these realistic initiatives, or rather "feel good" proposals pandering to the ignorant, just like Trump is doing?
