How often has our individual sovereignty and liberty been stolen under the cover of nationalistic fervor?
I agree with Doctor Paul that my conscience supercedes any call to national service - and definitely, my conscience would not permit me to engage in these illegal wars fought in subservience to a foreign nation.
I will gladly give my life to defend my loved ones. The US government and its lackeys are not part of that group.
"Thus it is that in war the victorious strategist only seeks battle after the victory has been won,whereas he who is destined to defeat first fights and afterwards looks for victory." --- Sun Tzu, The Art of War.
