Germany's power is measured in healthcare.

That's all.

Yeah, sure, they may lose military engagements with 1/2 of the developed world, but they have us to take care of them. Just take it easy, Germany. Daddy's got you.

US can keep spending 400billion a year on defense. while Germany can keep offering universal healthcare

who is invading the US again? Canada?

Agreed, we should stop paying for the defense of these other "developed" nations.

We arent at war with anyone and havent had foreign boots on our land in a couple hundred years.

He wasn't talking about Germany, but rather Switzerland I'm sure. If you think quality of life is better in USA than Switzerland think again. Go over there, take it all in, and you will shit your pants.

Switzerland is one of my favorite places in the world. I could easily retire there as long as I inherit a billion dollars and find a long lost relation who is a Swiss citizen.

For a small nation. It helps to be remotely located and protected by the Alps. Also claiming neutrality (at least on paper) has kept them out of direct conflict.

LMAO

Germany sitting back and spending their money on shit that makes them have a higher quality of life, the US are the dopes in this "partnership", exactly what benefits do we get spending so much money in protecting Germany?

I'll wait.

Nothing. Should have just let them be run by Nazis.

But the truth is, the same could be said about 99% of the countries on this planet. Which is why I have been for the US to cut off all foreign aid and let the rest of the world fall into chaos, starvation, and genocide.

Not our problem, right? I don't think it is.

I never said Trump had zero good ideas. I believe I even mentioned it during the presidential campaign that I agreed with him on that point, that we spend way too much money on defending other countries that are fully capable of defending themselves and that we have too many military bases around the world.
