If we didn't spend so much on defense there'd be more money for things we really need

I don't understand why taxes keep going up. They say it's for schools and infrastructure, but if the United States would just cut back on military spending, the money for schools and roads would be there without having to raise taxes on Americans.
We have troops in almost every country in the world, but why? We probably only need to be in half of them, and on top of that we're spending massive amounts on technology.
Perhaps if we pulled out of a couple of countries and cut military spending a little, life at home would improve. President Eisenhower warned us about the military-industrial complex, and I think we should listen.
