If we increase defense spending by $50 billion, does it make for better defense?

Better for defense contractors. That's about it.

I'd imagine you could defend yourself with much less.

Not necessarily but it is a good possibility

Yes. We have a lot of non functioning military equipment that additional funding will help fix.

We have enough for defense, but it might make intervention better.

No, because we already spend far more on "defense" than is necessary to ensure the best possible defense, even though much of it is wasted on things that are completely unrelated to OUR defense.

Support of distant foreign nations, overseas bases, etc, that have nothing to do with defending the United States. If is about US "interests", overseas, you can bet it isn't about defense.

Most likely yes, but obviously how it is spent is necessary information before making a definite claim

The Federal government has basically one job.
The defense of the citizens of the United States.

Not necessarily, but it will help the military industrial complex.
