Veteran’s Day for a Libertarian

Thanks to all those who have served in our wars. Liberty depends on a lot of things, including, sometimes wars against despotism. We shouldn’t forget the sacrifice of those who fought in those wars. I am a vet and a libertarian. The volunteers in our military serve because they think they are needed to protect our liberties. In my experience most of them didn’t worry too much about agreeing with a war or not, they believe that the system will usually get it right. Their hearts are in the right place and their bodies are on the line. They pay the price for our democratic decisions. We owe them our respect for that.
