Congress Ends Military Sponsorship of NASCAR, Can Continue Afghanistan War for 3 More Hors

Dale Earnhardt Jr. in his National
Guard car. 
Recently, Congress passed a law preventing the Military from sponsoring any professional sporting events. This means that the National Guard can no longer sponsor Dale Earnhardt's race car. With military expenditures through the roof, this seems like a sensible cut.

But is it?

According to The Libertarian Patriot, this cut will allow the War in Afghanistan to be funded for three more hours. That's it! Why don't we just pull out of Afghanistan and save even more money? That would be the logical thing to do, right? Instead of pulling out of NASCAR, pull out of Afghanistan.

Gary Johnson thinks so. He is the former Governor of New Mexico and is running for President of the United States as a Libertarian. If elected, he would pull all troops out of Afghanistan immediately. Neither Obama nor Romney would do that. But with defense spending through the roof, it seems like a more meaningful cut than NASCAR sponsorship.

If you agree with me, vote for Gary Johnson this November. He will be on the ballot in all 50 states. The choice is yours.... a spending cut that will fund the War for three hours, or a spending cut that will end the war. Which one is better?
