On this Memorial Day, when we remember the sacrifices of our military, it’s important to keep in mind that our recent conflicts haven’t been about protecting “our” freedoms at all. Consider, for example, this article. Also, consider that United States soldiers are in 159 countries. Why?
Our military needs to defend us, not “bring democracy” to countries across the world through “regime change.” On this day when we remember those who have died, please keep everyone currently serving in your hearts and minds, and vote for those who want to stop fighting all these senseless wars.
