“No nation could preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare.” — James Madison
Waging endless wars abroad (in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan
and now Syria) isn’t making America—or the rest of the world—any safer,
it’s certainly not making America great again, and it’s undeniably
digging the U.S. deeper into debt.
In fact, it’s a wonder the economy hasn’t collapsed yet.
Indeed, even if we were to put an end to all of the government’s military meddling and bring all
of the troops home today, it would take decades to pay down the price
of these wars and get the government’s creditors off our backs. Even
then, government spending would have to be slashed dramatically and taxes raised.
