Why will November feature an election between Liberal Hawks and Neoconservatives? Just follow the money.

General Electric, a weapons manufacturer, has given Democratic Party candidates at a federal level $510,400 so far in the 2012 election cycle, according to Open Secrets.

One of the co-sponsors of DNC festivities in Charlotte, NC, was none other than BAE Systems, another weapons manufacturer and war contractor, which has given $233,000 to Democrats so far in the run up to the 2012 elections, according to Open Secrets.

As Smedley Butler wrote long ago,

War is a racket. It always has been.

It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives.

Whoever resides in 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue after November 6, 2012, at least one major thing is already settled: the war racket has no end in sight.
