Several lawmakers and presidential candidates have their own list of military programs they're looking for the U.S. to acquire to bolster America's military prowess.

If I become president, I’m going to cut the defense budget. We’re going to try for peace rather than war. Imagine that concept? 

We spend far too much war. We can blow the world up 100 times over right now, but what's the point?  

The military deserves a Christmas gift: we should bring them home. End the war. But I know that’s going to be unpopular.

For the amount of money we’re spending on war, we could be fixing our infrastructure.  Right now, we have the most children in U.S. history living in poverty. And instead we’re spending 13 billion dollar aircraft carriers.  All it’s for is so we can continue being at war.

We’re a culture of war.  And until we break that culture, that’s what you’re going to get. You’re going to be spending all your money on war. And that’s exactly what we’re doing.
