I keep hearing Republican...

...candidates for president say they want to rebuild the nation's defenses. And I always think, huh?

This piece (admittedly from 2013) from the Washington Post, "America’s staggering defense budget, in charts," makes a point that's still relevant today (my emphasis):

The United States spent more on its military than the next 13 nations combined in 2011.

I thought Republicans were supposed to be the party of smaller government. How much more do they want to spend on defense?
