Iraq: stolen post-invasion cash as high as $18 billion
Money many Americans in this depression could have used right now. Withdraw the troops and stop stealing our money for government projects.

Oh, Lordy, that’s a lot of money that could’ve gone into saving homes, rebuilding lives and educating children.
Correct. The difference between the left’s and the libertarian ways of doing that is the left trust the same government that got us into Iraq etc. to do it while libertarians don’t, saying the market would do a better job. Free up money from bad investments like stupid wars abroad and put it to work in the economy. That said, Ron Paul for example is fine with working with the left short-term taking a peace dividend from drawing down the military to help people used to government aid, but weaning them off taxpayer money.
