Can You Imagine The USA Without A Military? Without an Army, Navy Airforce?Submitted by Treg on Thu, 08/29/2013 - 19:54
Can you let your mind run with that? Can you ponder and ponder all the angles and how our free republic would look like and operate without a military?
Its not easy.
But then, think back to a time long ago, a time of kings and great empires of Britain, Spain, and France. Think back to 1776 -1800, where the New America, fresh and new and without a King --- who had ever heard of such nonsense!? Why all countries have a King, or Emperor, or Queen at least! But no king?? Just 3 squabbling bodies? And to top it off, no Military?? No navy or army, just a bunch of armed citizens....)
So now lets think about today, with Russia and China out there. And then there is us, the USA. Could the USA actually go back to a citizen army? Could we go back to a time of 1910, with just a tiny army and navy? How small could we go?
Mmm Lots to think about.
