Many government leaders believe that if you have to fight a war you are going to have to raise taxes and print money to do it. However, this is the wrong approach. If you lower taxes and you get the economy screaming along there will actually be greater economies of scale and more left over to build your war machine and pay for it. One can only ask why anyone who is an economist or a free-market thinker wouldn’t see this.
Perhaps, the Socialist Democrats wish to raise taxes and destroy the economy, so there are no economies of scale left, thus, nothing left over for the war machine, and therefore no war can be fought. Unfortunately, no war can be won either, and that means if your enemy attacks you at a time when you are in a state of economic decay you will not be able to fight them and win. Thus, all you have done is surrendered your civilization to a hostile force because you destroyed your own economy.
Indeed, was in it Sun Tzu, who talked about letting the enemy destroy himself from within, and avoiding those wars that you cannot win, and fighting the battles that you can? Is the United States of America setting itself up for a major military defeat that would be unheard of? One, which will put us in economic slavery, and find us being invaded by another force. Currently, we are not defending against such a challenge in the future and we are doing everything in the present to prevent ourselves from having the resources to strengthen our defense. This is a mistake.
Obviously, the wiser thing to do is to lower taxes and reduce regulation on small businesses, regain full employment and have the economies of scale to strengthen our military to fight both future wars and defend ourselves. Please consider this.
