How many billions of tax dollars would our government have to?

spend on weapons, if all national security threats were eliminated? How much money would you be ok with being spent on national security equipment if you already knew there was no threat, because you were already secure? What would that do to most of America's manufacturing jobs, that haven't moved to China? <<part of absolute security is self sufficiency >> Of course it is, but we both know that isn't going to happen as long as long as Americans demand a higher wage than communist laborers in China huh? but that is only a smidgeon of the overall problem.

Our government is very paranoid so the spending will only increase in the future. The US has 5% of the population but spends 50% of the military dollars in the world. Our leaders are addicted to war.

About the same as they are spending now. Eisenhower had it right on the money when he warned of the military-industrial complex. And he was in a position to know. It's why I wonder if a world absent of war is possible

You mean an imperturbable country with people that have an impervious mentality living within an impenetrable nationwide fortress like a dome or something where's there's no diversity whatsoever. Probably no money at all. Most of america's manufacturing jobs would have nothing to do with it.
