    Brilliant.
    If the government is employing shipbuilders to build the billion dollar+ USS Gerald Ford, for example, then it means that fewer resources are available to spend on things individuals actually WANT

    [An army of] a hundred thousand men, costing the taxpayers a hundred million of money, live and bring to the purveyors as much as a hundred million can supply. That is which is seen.

    But, a hundred million taken from the pockets of the taxpayers, ceases to maintain these taxpayers and their purveyors as far as a hundred million reaches. This is that which is not seen. Now make your calculations. Add it all up, and tell me what profit there is for the masses?
