No seriously the companies listed above (under Ron - Lock Mart etc.) make the most money not in war but in peace. I worked in that industry so have seen the effects first hand. Basically what happens is that in war time the gov slows or stops contracts to make new things or modernize things, instead their budgets get spent maintaining, and replacing equipment, troops, munitions, etc. So yes those companies would be much better off out of the war. Now you would be unlikely to hear them make any official statements otherwise... after all the boss of their customers is the president :-D
Curiously enough there was a proposed law in France to tax gold and the the NO won. Wonder why the politicians voted no on that one...
Corruption always find ways around the law.
Also, by giving government money by numbers of votes you are punishing small parties and benefiting big parties. They get more votes so they get more money, because they have more money they get more votes, because they get more votes they get more money, ... Its a vicious circle that stops any kind of political diversity.
