Republic versus Empire

Here is my favorite single line on how empire changes the domestic population:
[T]he difference between republic and empire might be restated as the difference between taking the girl next door to the Sadie Hawkins Dance and paying a Saigon whore in chocolate bars and the Yankee dollar.
It's from Bill Kauffman's "My America vs. the Empire."
