    If we're invaded, by an actual military force, Yeah, I'd sign up. Probably for the National Guard...Or what would be left of it.

    But if were talking about actually going across an ocean to "liberate" or "protect our freedoms oversees", then sorry. Count me out.

    The invader would have to be worse than the Korporate/Military/Industrial Complex that is in charge of our Nation at this time. I am a patriot and a realist. There are some terrible things going on in this country and some truly evil management at all levels. To me it all began with the Federal Reserve and then they allied with the CIA and developed the "Mighty Wurlitzer" and have developed dangerous power, dangerous to the people, and must be judged by their actions. Actions like Iraq, Libya, Granada, Latin America, Vietnam, and many other very profitable for Corporate America wars. $700 billion pissed away on military offense by a Nation that teeters on bankruptcy. Homeland Security, Patriot Act, up your nose government and there ain't no Ghostbusters to call.

    No one has asked what "you" meant.

    'You' as in the country going to war, or 'you' as in you specifically as an individual going to war?

    You as an individual could still be included in the former, of course, but I think it's a valid distinction that would affect some answers.

    Regardless of the reason? Would you have taken up arms to defend Germany in WWII?

    Dick Cheney is also old as ****, and has a ****ed up heart. Still didn't stop him from shooting his buddy in the face with some birdshot, though.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Certainly, provided of course is to actually defend and not something like VN or Iraq. There should actually be a threat to defend her from.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
