A country that had intelligent leaders would... slash its massive military budget

Is the average USAmerican so in love with our military that they'd seriously sacrifice Medicare to ensure that those bombs and bombers keep getting produced? Of course I know that what the average USAmerican wants means very little, but I'm just curious.
A country that had intelligent leaders would recognize its dire straits, stop its gratuitous wars, and slash its massive military budget, which exceeds that of the rest of the world combined. But a country whose foreign policy goal is world hegemony will continue on the path to destruction until the rest of the world ceases to finance its existence.
Will what happened to Lehman Brothers today be America’s fate tomorrow?
