Department of Defense


Mission Statement –

The Department of Defense is America’s largest government agency. With our military tracing its roots back to pre-Revolutionary times, the department has grown and evolved with our nation. Our mission is to provide the military forces needed to deter war and ensure our nation’s security.

Discussion –

Defense of the nation is clearly a responsibility of the Federal Government, so the Department of Defense should be maintained under our proposal. While many may argue about the appropriate size and expense of the Department of Defense, that discussion is well beyond the scope of this website.


Current Budget$716,000,000,000.00
