Interestingly enough, Bill Ayres, way back when, actually wanted us involved in 'brushfire wars' all over the planet, as the cost would help break the bank, which I expect was in the advice in his mentoring of Obama. Another Marxist wanabe, Frances Piven, who still prates on, expected entitlements to break the bank, and so wanted them increased. Sounds like Obama's policies.
And lastly, I quote Marx, as he opined about how to treat people with financial reserves and property.
'Crush them between the twin millstones of Inflation and taxation'. Sounds too familiar to me.
