My view

Offered.

There is no way for Liberty to exit, or it is a powerless condition, to be without a more powerful military for Liberty, in the face of an overpowering criminal Military power.

That was proven after 1776 and The Declaration of Independence.

So, in no way am I against The Military as it was defined, voluntarily, by individual human beings who recognize the vital need to defend against which ever sized group of criminals may seek to destroy Liberty.

The British invaded, the volunteers took out, removed, the powerful aggressive military might, and they did so despite our own home grown Despots who pretended to be on our side.

Case in point:

So, in context, your efforts to me work at the heart of the problem as you speak not only to the potential members of The Military but more importantly you speak to those who are already in The Military, and where else will defense of Liberty gain enough power to actually be powerful enough to defend Liberty but in our, voluntary, intelligent, moral, lawful, military?

You may not, but the point is that there are good people everywhere doing good things, more than there are bad people, and it has to be that way, mathematically, or there would be no more human beings.

You may want to know too, that The Constitution was actually a usurpation of Liberty, and that is very well documented as fact by many people then, since, and now.

In essence, that which the criminals can't get openly by force, they get through deceptive means.

Case in point:

"One party, whose object and wish it was to abolish and annihilate all State governments, and to bring forward one general government, over this extensive continent, of monarchical nature, under certain restrictions and limitations. Those who openly avowed this sentiment were, it is true, but few; yet it is equally true, Sir, that there was a considerable number, who did not openly avow it, who were by myself, and many others of the convention, considered as being in reality favorers of that sentiment; and, carry into effect what they well knew openly and avowedly could not be accomplished."

Washington was in on it, so was Hamilton, seen here and here:

"And whereas, it is in my judgment necessary under the circumstances of the case to take measures for calling forth the militia in order to suppress the combinations aforesaid, and to cause the laws to be duly executed; and I have accordingly determined so to do, feeling the deepest regret for the occasion, but withal the most solemn conviction that the essential interests of the Union demand it, that the very existence of government and the fundamental principles of social order are materially involved in the issue, and that the patriotism and firmness of all good citizens are seriously called upon, as occasions may require, to aid in the effectual suppression of so fatal a spirit;"

"But Hamilton wanted to go farther than debt assumption. He believed a funded national debt would assist in establishing public credit. By funding national debt, Hamilton envisioned the Congress setting aside a portion of tax revenues to pay each year's interest without an annual appropriation. Redemption of the principal would be left to the government's discretion. At the time Hamilton gave his Report on Public Credit, the national debt was $80 million. Though such a large figure shocked many Republicans who saw debt as a menace to be avoided, Hamilton perceived debt's benefits. "[I]n countries in which the national debt is properly funded, and the object of established confidence," explained Hamilton, "it assumes most of the purposes of money." Federal stock would be issued in exchange for state and national debt certificates, with interest on the stock running about 4.5 percent. To Republicans the debt proposals were heresy. The farmers and planters of the South, who were predominantly Republican, owed enormous sums to British creditors and thus had firsthand knowledge of the misery wrought by debt. Debt, as Hamilton himself noted, must be paid or credit is ruined. High levels of taxation, Republicans prognosticated, would be necessary just to pay the interest on the perpetual debt. Believing that this tax burden would fall on the yeoman farmers and eventually rise to European levels, Republicans opposed Hamilton's debt program.”

"To help pay the interest on the debt, Hamilton convinced the Congress to pass an excise on whiskey. In Federalist N. 12, Hamilton noted that because "[t]he genius of the people will ill brook the inquisitive and peremptory spirit of excise law," such taxes would be little used by the national government. In power, the Secretary of the Treasury soon changed his mind and the tax on the production of whiskey rankled Americans living on the frontier. Cash was scarce in the West and the Frontiersmen used whiskey as an item of barter."

So, yea, it is really hard to condense a lot of vital, accurate, information down into a sound bite.
