Freedom Bombs Are Kinetic Military Action Is Not Free

One of the ickier things too come out of our Great And Glorious March To War In Iraq was the popularization of the phrase "freedom isn't free," as if cutting taxes and sending other people off to war actually costs you anything (yes it costs the people who go and their families, along with the people who get a freedom bomb dropped on their heads are on the receiving end of kinetic military action, but the rest of cuts!) But it is true that this stuff does, in fact, cost a lot of money and the only question is who is ultimately going to pay for it. Presumably tax cuts for rich people will be the solution.
