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.
If I felt the cause was just, I would fight in a war.
If I did not, I would not.
And my decision would be based 100% on non-government sources of information.
I would NEVER fight a war just because my government tells me to because I NEVER trust ANY government...although there was a time I did (trust government)...thank goodness that time has passed.

I do like that the OP included fighting for my freedom.
The government is not the country. People all to often confuse that, and forget our origins and the reason it was designed the way it was.
