Its a staid and very usable formula, when government heavy-handed "Keynesian" control of economics fails (as it always does), then the only political resource is to create, or allow conditions for an unavoidable war, not a political war or an ideological war, or a limited war, but a situation where almost everyone agrees it has to happen to defend freedom or innocent life on a mass scale. Mark my words, this upcoming war, whether sparked directly by Iran or indirectly through Syria and the Shiite/Sunni internal war within, the Mideast (not to mention Israel as the literal "wild-card"), will be Obama's "free pass" from destroying our free markets and instituting massive government control on our lives. Its the FDR model and its working to plan, simply by just allowing all of it to play out.Reelection will occur for stability purposes and massive economic collapse (pushed to the brink by Greece and astronomical oil price increases). Doubt me? Doubt history. We repeat such things because we are intellectually ignorant and lazy.
