Not really. Americans could refuse to seat Representatives that promote a large discretionary defense budget.
Its simply Americans getting what they want.

Well put.  I love how analysts/politically concerned people like to absolve the electorate of responsibility for stuff like outrageous defense spending and foolish wars, and say the people don't want this, but the politicians aren't going to stop so it's not worth talking about.  If the people care about it and make an issue about it, it will stop.  Reelections will depend on it  And if the people don't make an issue about it, than they are every bit as guilty as the politicians who perpetrate it.

One of the reasons for the development of the US Constitution was to grant the federal government the power to tax.
And Article One Section Eight Clause One lays out the power of taxation... even excise (sales) taxes.

Where in the US Constitution do you find a restriction on the federal government from keeping a standing army in times of peace?
                                   I can,t read the constitution for you. Study it, just don,t read it. OriginalIntent web site explains it in depth, since definitions of words have been altered, like in, what is the defination of is, is. As far as the national govt having rights of taxation, they are very limited just as the constitution is a very limiting document to 10 sq miles of authority. Its obvious you never read thematrixhasyou.org/PDF/CO-motion-for-denial-complete.pdf or you would have a better understanding of everything that you been told was a lie. Like I said, I can,t read and study for you, a person has to want to learn. America is a country of Laws and Contracts. This is why you are constantly being asked to sign here and there, you are allowing your rights to be converted to privileges, which then as you enter into  contract obligations you can be regulated. Contracts are illegal useless there is full disclosure, and 2 or more willing parties, and a benefit to both parties. If not, contracts are nul and void, esp. without full disclosure. God given rights can,t be converted into privileges to a knowing participent unless under fraud. Find and read Blackstone, Sovereign Citizen,get an older version of Blacks Law dictionary. Anyone can go through life not knowing the truth, The Truth will set you free.

The US Constitution does not cover only 10 square miles of territory; that phrase is about singular legislative authority.
The limitation on taxes is A1S8 Clause One modified by 16A.

Almost without question, the majority of Democratic politicians and activists are expressing open hostility to every effort to promote personal or economic liberty in any form.

That is not to say that every Republican candidate is proliberty--far from it.  Indeed, many Republicans only support some measure of economic liberty when red tape and high taxes become obviously destructive to economic growth and business development.  A few truly are proliberty, though.

          The democratic are collectives, and rely fully on the it takes a village. They want most things done for them, and also want to be told what to do next. Republicans are more independent, but the power politicians want more power, and thats socialism. They don,t admit it, but they want bigger govt. just as much as demos. Both are corrupt, paid off, owned, masonic, attorns, and power hungry.

So which Dems voted against or entered bills to limit marriage? I think you will find that neither side supports a personal or economic liberty unless it suits their 'vision' of what that is.
