World War Economy

You might want to take a look at this list of contracts companies have with the US Department of Defense. You may find some surprises there.

Here's the hard part, the part that really hurts. The companies that have contracts with the USDOD range from mega companies like Lockheed Martin to small businesses like one in your own city or town. Jobs, my friends - these contracts bring jobs to your area, bring income to your area.

So, do we need a USDOP? The US Department of Peace, with enough money to throw around that companies can make money with the government for peaceworthy activities?

Take a look at this site also - very enlightening.

All we have to do (yes, I worded that as a little joke), is to convince these companies to build up their "Peacetime Product Lines" so they can stop making so much money from the stuff listed below when "Peace Breaks Out".
