One of the big knocks on Ron Paul is his aversion to military spending. People, particularly the right, love to paint Paul as some anti-patriot. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Ron Paul knows that the FED and Central Bankers everywhere love war. They love to finance war. Wars satisfy their greed and fuel the debt driven money supply. Full scale engagements consume gobs of hardware, fuel, and they keep soldiers and suppliers employed. The military complex/budget is a banker buffet. In short, war is the perfect solution for bankers.War has gotten us out of depressions. It worked for Germany twice, it has worked for us.
The problem with war is that real people die. Soldiers are sold this patriotic bullshit about dying for their country. Yet you don't see many sons and daughters of the banking elite, nor the elite in general, sending their kids off to be patriots. In the end, I can't escape the awful truth that a segment of our society- and we all know which segment that is- gets sacrificed at the hands of bankers and our economy.
In this clip, you are going to hear Paul use the term "Military Keynes- ism." What he is saying is that military spending and war for the sake of fueling debt and the money supply is wrong. Killing people to support your economy is wrong. It's the first time I have heard that term. I think it is very appropriate.
For those of you who don't get this, and never will, feel free to go sign up with your nearest recruiter. The bankers and the government are always in search of patriots. It's good for business even if it ain't so good for you.
