In addition, Dr. Gutzman offers his witty, yetdead-on analysis on the federal governments addiction to spending, and inwhether there exists a true need for a standing armies and how this in and ofitself perpetuates the wasteful need for debt financing provided by the FEDERALRESERVE.
Finally, in part three of the interview, Dr. Gutzman addresses a caller’s question on whether the United States actually needs a standing army in 2011, noting that a military invasion from either Canada or Mexico is highly unlikely and that even though the Founding Generation faced threats from far more numerous foreign and indigenous threats during the time of ratification, the Constitution is void of any such requirement as the dangers of standing armies and lust for empire far outweighed its benefit.
