USA: The perpetual warfare state

U.S. President Calvin Coolidge, right before the great depression said, “The business of America is business.”

Today, we have in the executive branch of the U.S. government, policy makers who have made the perpetual warfare state a reality. To them it is good for business. Ask Halliburton and Blackwater. Never mind that we have 47 million Americans with no health insurance and 12 million living in dire poverty in one of the wealthiest nations of the world.

The GOP neocons who currently govern the nation have found a great way to perpetuate heavy spending for their buddies: a never ending perpetual warfare business state using the “war on terror” as the perfect excuse.

There are those who say that this is a sure way to bankrupt the nation, and I agree. Today we see the dollar in a steep decline and losing acquisitive power every day. Will the U.S. dollar become the new Wiemar Republic mark?
