Let's crunch numbers...
The top 25 defense contractors in the US have a total of 1,739,520 employees. Now, some of these companies aren't strictly just defense contractors,
some of them simply create electronics and computers. So, we'll take a generous percentage at 75% and say that 1,304,640 want, to some degree,
military action as it brings in money.
Religious fundamentalists are also a major factor. Fundy Christians are constantly gripping the Book of Revelations and staring at the news in hopes
that they'll see the next major prophecy being fulfilled for the End Times. Not just Christianity, but Islam. Now, the US population is at
313,914,040. 73-76% of those identify themselves as Christians. We'll use 73%. 5-15%, depending on the numbers, belong to clasically fundamentalist
churches. We'll use 10%. 229,157,249 Christians, that would be 22,915,724 fundamentalist Christians. We'll say all of those, to some degree, want
war of some kind in hopes that it will jumpstart the events of Revelations.
So, we're currently looking at 24,220,364 people who most likely would want war in some shape or form.
The percentage of that, in the US population, is 7.71%
