8. Economic Liberty
When government expands, our economic liberty is sure to retract. Military excursions aren’t cheap. The police-state comes at a pretty penny, as well. All the money funneled into unconstitutional ventures could easily be used to better ends in the private market. Instead, American lives are sent to foreign lands at great cost.
A big military-state goes hand and hand with economic intervention. As long as the government continues to spend billions to fight their supposed War on Terror, our economic freedom will recede.
