08/03/11 – David T. Beito – The Scott Horton Show

by | Aug 3, 2011 | Interviews

Please ignore the false ending at 18:15 or so. The interview continues for another segment and is nearly 28 minutes in total.

David T. Beito, Research Fellow at The Independent Institute and Professor of History at the University of Alabama, discusses why the US government debt crisis will force conservatives to choose between tax increases and cutting the Pentagon’s budget; the small victories and many failures of the long-departed Anti-Imperialist League; William Graham Sumner’s must-read 1899 speech “The Conquest of the United States by Spain;” William Jennings Bryan’s lone antiwar voice in the Wilson administration; Ralph Raico’s ironically-titled book Great Wars and Great Leaders; and why the Come Home America Left-Right antiwar coalition is our best chance for peace.
