If I Were President Part II: Protecting Our Capital Markets

Posted by Keith on July 28, 2007 at 6:07 pm | 1 Comment

Don’t worry. I have no expectation of being drafted to actually run for President. But I hope that by putting this series in the first person I will more effectively emphasize the specific real-world actions our next President, in my opinion, must take.

War is hell on earth. I know. Like many of you, I have been there. To the American who dies in battle, or who looks down to see his leg missing; to the parents whose home is destroyed and children killed, or to the enemy soldier who was obliterated by a weapon so powerful and so fast he never saw it coming – to all these people and to millions more – there is no such thing as a small war, or of limited casualties. There is just war. There is just hell on earth.
