Whether people like it or not, a world war would most likely end the US economic problems as it did during ww2. Being one who has been unemployed for
a year now, I would welcome the job of painting a tank or riveting an airplane.
People often times forget or now-a-days, do not understand what a TRUE war does for the economy, people think we are broke, and we are with the
economy as it is right now, however if we move into a real wartime economy, our country will flourish again.
World War II is often credited with helping the United States to finally emerge from the Great Depression by bolstering the economy by
unprecedented levels. Production of war supplies, increased government control and decreasing unemployment expanded the U.S. economy during WWII. Many
factors affected the U.S. economy during WWII, but the result was unquestionable -- the U.S. emerged as the economic superpower after the war ended.

If war gets me back to work, as much as I hate to say it, I am all for it.
I am not afraid of nuclear weapons anymore, I was spoon fed all of the dangers and the reality of nukes all throughout the 80's, and if it does go
nuclear, we are all dead anyways, but if it stays conventional,
I will be employed and we all will be saving our pennies and donating them for bullet casings.
I would be able to grow a victory garden in the same spot my great aunt did, and my house, which I recently discovered was made specifically to
withstand a nuclear blast in the 50's, might actually get to use its intended purpose. (My great aunt and her husband were very "paranoid" as was
almost everyone else in the 50's/60's and had the basement designed by gov standards to withstand a nuclear blast and fallout.
Yeah right, we all know now it isn't possible, but in order to make the population feel protected they offered assessments and suggestions to make
your house nuke safe. Really interesting reading if you can locate some of the old 50's/60's gov issued information given to home owners. It
basically tells you how to barricade yourself in your basement and die )
I guess my point being, if ww 3 does go red hot, I will be ready and waiting with whatever job I get to do to help my country win, as we all (in the
USA) did during WW2. It is a generation that is all but gone now, so most of us younger generations do not understand what the war did to and for us
as a country, perhaps this is the only way out of our economic woes.
