Should I join the US Military?Submitted by TruthinessHurts on Sat, 10/13/2012 - 21:04
Hi, I was just wondering, as a libertarian-minded young person, should I join the US Military, and the Air Force, specifically? I know most everyone here supports the troops, but I also know how most of us are against drone strikes, foreign, undeclared wars, etc. So my question is basically, as someone who is already very libertarian-minded, would it go against my own code of ethics to join in on (in a way) supporting undeclared wars, foreign interventionism, etc., or would it be fine in the name of protecting liberty? Let me know if you'd like more info to make a more informed opinion.
Edit: Okay, a few other factors to throw in:
I'm doing it to pay for college, rather than be under crushing student-loan debt for the next few years, so I'm doing it out of a desire to be fiscally responsible.
I took a basic placement test a few days ago and got in the 99th percentile.
Hey, also, I have a meeting scheduled with the recruiter in a few days, any suggestions for questions to ask him?
