I will never forget the day my Econ professor explained all of American history in economic terms: war finally really made "sense." In other words, it finally made sense why people would go to war and pay for war when the costs were so high.
If King George hadn't been sticking his hands in their pockets, no matter how wonderful the Declaration was, there wouldn't have been enough resistance.
Only since the Federal Reserve made financing available for war, has Congress gotten away with starting them without the Peoples' consent.
Ron Paul is correct: trade -- an economic solution -- is the path to peace.
