It's interesting. Conservatives argue that the government is too large and incompetent to run big domestic programs, but when it comes to defense and foreign wars it's almost an act of disloyalty for some to question that the government can do anything wrong.
"That's a leading argument".
However I'll go down that road. Conservatives sees government too large because it is.
It's not that the government can't do anything wrong. It is about honoring the commitment made once the decision to support has been declared.
