Should the US Defense spending be at least 2% of our GDP?
Yes, especially affluent countries like Germany.
NATO efficiently protected them in the cold war.
They can easily afford it.
Speaking as a German.
Our military outlays should be much higher than 2% of GDP, which is actually below average for global military spending as a percentage of GDP. The United States currently spends 3.3% of our GDP on defense, so reducing that below 2% would require precipitous cuts.
I hope you run for President one day.
Haha! Thank you, Bird, you're too kind!
Those who say no, that this amount is too high, also are saying we must leave NATO. This is required by law.
