I've had a theory of WWIII for some time now. It's kind of a conspiracy (sort of), well here it is:
In the first "Great Depression" FDR use his "New Deal" as a way to improve the morale of the American people, but it was ineffective in bring the economy up, but it was in fact WWII that brought it up. What happened? Well you know the saying, "the enemy of my enemy is my friend"? Well with what was happening in Europe, we had to help somehow, and we eventually did. Pearl Harbor was attacked, destroying many ships, and many more lives. We needed workers and fast. We finally had jobs. We rebuilt the Navy in record time surprising the Japanese, the news passed onto the Germans and they declared war on the US thus starting WWII. Now my theory is: to get out of our recession (soon to be depression) we must start a World War. This will create more jobs.
Now, you might be asking yourself, "how did more jobs bring us out of the depression?" Well, the more jobs, the more tax payers inputting money into the economy bringing up the national debt. Nowadays the problem is outsourcing because it is cheaper... But that's a whole other topic.
