           After reading just a couple of pages of this book, I was struck by the solution to our entire military industrial complex war machine problems. I would love some feedback from DKos readers on this idea.
         

        As a nation the USA may conclude that war may be necessary as a final intervention to enhance world peace or to protect the security of the American citizen. In the event of a war when declared by the Congress would automatically call for a shared sacrifice by citizens and corporations. Citizens may be called upon to support our efforts by service for the government either in the Armed Services or some individual sacrifice for the benefit of the war effort. All corporations would also sacrifice by having all profits that are generated from providing equipment or supplies to our war efforts would be taxed at a 100% bracket at the point that the profits would surpass those of the average of the 5 previous years prior to the declaration of war. All revenues procured from this "war taxation" would be applied to reduce/eliminate our national debt and to provide our citizens with benefits of increased health programs, expansion of Medicare and Medicaid, and ensuring solvency of Social Security.
