Please do not cut this bill as we are more than ever in the need to have strength in the military. They need all the support we can give them. Cut our gifts of billions of dollars to the countries who hate us and we still give them money. Cut them off not our military!

Please support our troops with the proper amount of funding.

ALSO, remove 1031 and 1032 from the bill so that there is not a question as to whether this might be used as a political tool against innocent peoples. Unfetter the hands of the military and allow them to fight. More laws will bind the good men and women of our nation.

We spend as much on defence as the rest of the world combined. WHO'S THE ENEMY??

Our casualties aren't caused by a sophisticated enemy, but by a bunch of people who don't value life as we do. We employ thousands of nationals at the various countries where we have bases. That money would be better spent here. Protect our young men and women,and don't send them on dumb missions. And if you do, take care of them upon their return. Why do we need another aircraft carrier? We have more (11) than the rest of the world combined!

We are being FORCED into a police state by our nonrepresenting representatives and a military used in a dishonorable way is not honor at all.

Support our troops by bringing them home to protect us from the Bankers and technocrats sucking us into a 3rd world status.

Just more constitutional death to give the military the ability send all Americans to Gitmo. Senator Rand Paul is against this bill.

VOTE NO, Veto it and challenge it to the Supreme Court.

I sure wish I could withdraw my support from this damn bill. The PEOPLE are NOT being represented...we are paying for our own imprisonment. Arrgh!
