Regardless, the big difference is how the two parties want to spend Federal revenues.
The US is already the biggest defense spender in the world and produces more than half of the world's arms and munitions.
President Obama wants to keep the Pentagon budget essentially flat during the next 10 years.
Mitt Romney, by contrast, wants a huge increase defense spending. One estimate is more than 50% above the current level.
That could result in almost $2 trillion in additional military spending during the next 10 years.
The defense take from the Gross Domestic Product would increase form 3.2 per cent to 4 per cent.
