General Patton wanted to invade Russia and China – Which lead to his weird death.

Also, Don’t take me not giving you thumps up, or down with not agreeing with you. I dislike this youtube/facebook/twitter system.
I refuse to vote here too :). Unless, it’s a humorous comment and music.

Edit; Forgot France + Britain’s treaty to back each other up before the war started.
I blame Wilson for america’s involvement in ww1, income tax, states rights being nerfed.

On the banker subject in the teens and 20′s dig deeper. You’ll see how the major banks at the time caused the boom and bust cycle… Crashed smaller local banks then preceded to buy them up.
Notice when you go out to town at the bank names you see. Wells fargo, Bank Of America, Chase, etc. You rarely see local banks anymore and if you do they go out of business fairly quick.
The laws are set up against small businesses. It’s no ‘conspiracy’ at play just business men colluding together against smaller individuals such as you, and I.

“The Japanese may have still risen as an empire but it’s quite possible it would not have played out as it did. ”
Yup. But China would have never been a major player either… We supplied China with weapons/aircraft against the Japanese. You have to remember Japan feared Communism very much during this ERA.
Look what China did with mao.
Not defending japan because of my Anime bias either. I’m just saying it’s not all black and white.
Forcing Germany to pay and give up territories because of WW1 was wrong when Britain was the clear aggressor there no doubt. Which gave rise to hitler promising to restore the “homeland” or fatherland whatever they called it.
Just goes to show how propaganda works the same in every nation.

“I’ve noticed that as well. The only time where war got us out of mess was when WW2 “cured” the Great Depression”
The war didn’t cure the great depression that was created by government and bankers in the first place. If you consider everyone having a public job and having nothing to eat a booming economy. After the war bankers eased up restrictions and flowed the money back into the economy which eventually ended the gold standard… Now dollars are backed by oil.
“’ll be the one to protect you from your enemies and all your demons
I’ll be the one to protect you from a will to survive and a voice of reason
I’ll be the one to protect you from your enemies and your choices son
They’re one in the same, I must isolate you…
Isolate and save you from yourself …”
“Don’t fret precious I’m here, step away from the window
Go back to sleep
Lay your head down child
I won’t let the boogeyman come
Counting bodies like sheep
To the rhythm of the war drums
Pay no mind to the rabble
Pay no mind to the rabble
Head down, go to sleep
To the rhythm of the war drums ”
It truly is sad. I have Muslim friends in Egypt who are trying to escape the nightmare that surrounds them.

“yup, res… goes back to my question from years ago about whether or not any Nation has ever attempted socialism while simultaneously medicating it’s entire populous”
I do not doubt it. I remember reading a theory about lithium being in the water supply in Germany. God knows what our own government does.

“i’m “conservative” in my defense of the Constitution… which is THE most liberal government document in the history of all governments!”
I didn’t mean it in the sense of each individuals view of conservatism which differs from state to state and country to country. It’s the same with Libertarians as of right now as you can tell many are drifting towards libertarianism without understanding NAP and bringing their social-conservatism along with them.
Eh, I’m tired of labels. I do wish Liberal was rightly restored to it’s true honor.
