As you know, I identify myself as a neo-libertarian, but refuse to affiliate with the Libertarian pary. Here’s a major reason why:
“Democracy cannot come from the barrel of a gun…”
Remind me, how did we end our status as colonies of Great Britain? I must have forgotten.
“Our obligation is to our soldiers: to keep them as safe as possible and to use them only in the direct defense of our nation.”
This sort of anti-military contumely always gets under my skin. Why do you suppose people volunteer for military duty? We take up the obligation to keep you safe.
