As you may know, Medicare and Social Security have dedicated taxes which have generated a SURPLUS of $4T over the last 30 years so take them out of the graphic. Then you find military spending jumps to 70% of the cost of Federal government and 70% of the US deficit and the $14T in debt run up from $900B in 1980 to $14T today with 30 years of oil war preparation and 20 years of continuous Middle East oil war. Social Security and Medicare have not contributed anything to US deficits and debt. The cost of oil wars. 80% of the US debt of $14T. 80% of current deficits. Oil's other big economic impact is the $500B oil trade deficit tax for the 4B barrels of oil we import. We import that oil, 50% of oil needs, because we are 50% less energy efficient than Europe, Japan on other modern economies. If we spent the $1.4T per year we spend for military for oil on making US more energy efficient we eliminate the $500B oil trade deficit tax and we eliminate $500B per year in Federal spending on military to secure oil. A 7% boost in US GDP to get US out of the Great Recession, caused, in part by the $14T wasted on military spending to secure oil.
