Support the Troops… By Ending Military Intervention (Episode 42)

Ever since 9/11, there’s been a heightened reverence for the military and those who serve in it. We see soldiers getting discounts at all sorts of businesses, receiving rounds of applause when boarding airplanes, and tributes to them before NFL games. It’s all a show how we “support the troops.”

Now please don’t mistake this for me bashing the troops. It’s not that at all. I want to support the troops in the best way possible – bringing them home and ending this insane foreign policy of the US government.

If your instinct is to support our military no matter what, you might want to skip this episode. But if you’re open to hearing why continued elevation of our bloated military forces is hurting our liberties, please hit “Play.”
