How would a Ron Paul Presidency change the Military?

I had a random thought yesterday after reading the topic about the "Fox Five" comments about keeping Paul out of the debates...

Anyway, my random thought was wondering what happen to the military if Ron Paul were to be President. And my specific thought was that I know I would be dramatically more likely to join a military that is fighting to protect our nation and freedom and not nation building. What effect would ending wars have on the number of people willing to join the military? I know there are a lot of people who rule out military careers because they do not want to be a pawn in the NWO and nation building or having no idea why they are even fighting.

Americans would very quickly step up to defend our nation and back a President who is fighting for freedom and not power, wealth and dominance.

Our military would feel valued and respected

by their commander-in-chief. I imagine a sea-change in morale. It will be a blessed day, for sure.

I feel like a large part of

I feel like a large part of the incentive to volunteer right now is economic incentives (which could be getting cut, so we may not be able to maintain a voluntary military with our current strategy). I know I personally chose not to join for moral reasons, but I would proudly join in a defensive war. I think the below post is right. Morale would be great.

A stronger, better prepared fighting force

From the moment the troops are ordered back to CONUS, their mission better defined and all logistic issues resolved, the morale and, as a consequence, the operational readiness of every activity will be notably improved. President Paul would transform a spread-too-thin fighting force into a well-oiled, operationally ready machine.

Logic dictates that: Wrong action has to lead to wrong results; and right action has to lead to right results. Period. No exceptions.
