Green Party Presidential Candidate Jill Stein: Downsize the Military

The US military budget has doubled since 2001, reaching nearly a trillion dollars. And Mitt Romney wants to add another 2 trillion on top. But Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein says that for all the increased military spending, the US isn't any safer—in fact, it's less secure. Stein says expanding the military industrial complex and drone warfare has made the world view the US as an aggressor, rather than a "champion for justice, human rights and international law."
