Anything called "The War on ", where the blank is not a political entity, is a sign that you are being duped out of money.*
Typically, your money is garnered through the apportionment process of your collected taxes.
Typically, the profiteers using this phrase are: military defense contractors; law enforcement organizations at the federal, state, county, or municipal levels; and politicians.Examples:
- The War on Drugs
- The War on Terror
- The War on Christmas
- The War on Poverty (Yes, Progressives fall victim to this, too.)
