    That was sarcasm? I actually thought you were being pretty direct.

    I voted sometimes. I think we should go to war in order to help our allies. However, I am unsure if that qualifies as "when necessary."

    I knew what you were doing before I ever replied to that post. I knew you knew better too.... this isn't our first dance, after all. Nonetheless, the point needed to be made lest someone ignorant misunderstand it, or misconstrue it.

    To answer the war, we should go to war when we need to go to war. You can't predict it in advance usually.

    That is a really foolish way of thinking. War is NOT necessary for the economy. Where does anyone come up with that statement / idea?

    Other-
    When we are attacked on our shores, or when another close ally (democratic/republic friend) is directly attacked on their shores.

    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.
