    War always hurts the economy, because the government must take from the productive sector of the economy to finance it.

    "The essence of so-called war prosperity; it enriches some by what it takes from others. It is not rising wealth but a shifting of wealth and income." - Ludwig von Mises

    Almost as bad as the tax cut in the middle of the wars.

    But economics has never been the strong suit of the 'Conservatives'.

    We don't have time for economics when there is still a black man to hold back.
