Congresswoman Betty McCollum, D-Minn recently proposed a law prohibiting The Defense Department from spending money on advertisements for NASCAR. Democrats claim that this is “wasteful” spending, but that’s actually not true. What is the point of the advertising? It is to recruit patriotic Americans to join the military. Who tends to go to NASCAR races? Patriotic Americans! The advertisements, then, do serve the purpose of advancing our national security interests by placing advertisements in a place that are highly likely to appeal to patriotic Americans. Democrats hate the military, and NASCAR, so it makes sense why they would propose such a shameful law.
