November 19, 2014—In this interview with Jacob Hornberger, founder and president of The Future of Freedom Foundation, Hornberger discusses how the United States lost the Cold War by adopting the totalitarian features of the Soviet Union; and how to better the economy by cutting the Pentagon’s budget and using the proceeds for productive purposes.

“How did they drive the Soviet Union into bankruptcy? What conservatives were ignoring was our government was spending large amounts of money also. The government sector has continued spending ever-increasing amounts of money. Why wouldn’t the same principle apply to the American empire?”
