I don't support the troopsSubmitted by dexterszyd on Wed, 12/12/2012 - 06:07
That's right, I said it. I don't support the troops! But wait, why stop there?
Not only do I not support the troops,
I don't support the teachers
I don't support the police
I don't support the firefighters
I don't support the labor unions, public or private
Or any other group / mob mentality.
What I do support are the individuals rights to life, liberty, property and the pursuit thereof as well as those individuals that defend my rights to life, liberty, property and the pursuit thereof.
We as a society must reject collective group think at all levels. Our society places so much emphasis on the institutions and not the individuals. Next time I see a sticker or a slogan emploring me to support one of these institutions I'm going to scream. It is crammed down our throats 24-7 and its time we asked why!
Stand up for the individual! A Campaign for Liberty! And Reject Collectivism!
Am I alone?
