Support The Troops?

Of course you do!

I do, too.  But Kent’s “Hooligan Libertarian Blog” offers perspective, along with support.

To wit (in part):

The powderkeg of “troops”

Are individuals in America better off that there are US troops all over the planet?  Do troops really help “the people”?Think about it.Was Germany better off by having and supporting the Nazi troops?  Or, in the long run was the normal, average German made less safe and less prosperous because of “the troops”?  (And don’t bother trying to misuse Godwin’s Law on me- I’m on to that game.)

The only ones helped by “the troops” are those who work for that gang of thugs called “government”.  Everyone else is harmed.  They may think they are benefiting, but only until consequences catch up to them all.  At that time the veil is ripped away.

You should go to Kent’s link above and read the whole thing.  Blind obedience isn’t thinking, and it certainly isn’t what freedom and liberty are about.

Question Authority.  Not just for the exercise, but for the meaning; the agenda.

  2. Blind obedience or compliance is never, ever a prima facie good idea, IMHO. If one can’t understand why something is being done, or it seems wrong, then actual thought is required. Of course, that disqualifies 51% of the populace.

  3. Sadly he’s oblivious to the good the folks do while deployed… The lives saved, etc… But I’m betting if the SHTF, he’d be the FIRST one screaming for protection… Seen his type before.

    • Well, I’ll leave it to him to defend himself.
      Just like peace officers, it does seem some military folks are too ready and willing to be twisted into JBTs.
      I’m hoping the vast majority are like you, Old NFO, attached to and believing in your oath!
