It's not a question of what he wants to do but as to whether he is prepared to obey a lawful command. I can see him getting chucked out and stripped of his pension rights especially since he has gone public.

I expect that the boots have a microchip in them that calls home to the factory.

I believe a country that has such a gigantic defense budget can probably afford to buy shoes made in their own country.

If they really want to cut down on their defense budget they could probably STOP INVADING COUNTRIES THAT DIDN'T ATTACK THEM !

Then tell me why they buy shoes made in China.

If they stop invading coutries that didn't attack them, then US is not US anymore.
Obviously Showing off in every corner of the world its military power and bullying underdeveloped countries for something, oil, etc is much more important than their concern on defense budget
