There’s also a 2012 Chart of Conflict – but I couldn’t find a decent sized image on their site. I think they want you to buy it.

And Ryan’s budget does nothing to reduce defense spending. In fact, the generals said they want less money, and he called them liars. He said they were just following the administration line and not being honest.

I tell you, in a few decades states will start succeeding from the union to escape this insanity. The loss of Texas and California alone would bankrupt the country and bring this budget crashing into reality.
