The Premise of Wars


“The war on drugs brought in more drugs and the war on terror brought in more terrorists. Maybe next year we can have a war on money and jobs and see where that goes,” writes Occupy Portland.

Their premise is in error.

The federal government has not done a good job in ending drugs entry into the U.S. because it will not seal the borders. As for terrorists — again the fed’s are treating them as an organization and not an ideology — battling as if it were a war of attrition.

The only war the federal government has fought correctly is the one on money and jobs. Jus’ look at how weak the U.S. economy has been since 2007.
