At Memorial Day and Veteran Day ceremonies, politicians and others like to praise soldiers, sailors, marines, and airmen who have fought in the country’s wars, police actions, and kinetic military actions. These orators bombast that if it were not for the sacrifices that these men in uniform made, we would have no freedoms. Many gave their lives for the rest of us to be free. They seldom list these freedoms. If they do, they mention freedoms that we lost a long time ago.
A short, and highly incomplete, list of freedoms that we have today follows. Here are some of the freedoms for which America’s finest have fought and died:
1. The freedom to have unalienable rights converted to governmentally granted privileges.
2. The freedom to have a government to treat veterans like trash.
3. The freedom to have a government to use soldiers as experimental animals.
4. The freedom to have a government that considers soldiers as stupid, expandable grunts to carry out the globalist-new-world-order-destroy-America foreign policy.
5. The freedom to pay the county and city annual rent (or extortion) to keep them from taking our house.
6. The freedom to pay governments half our income to keep them from strong-arming us with the IRS and other tax collectors (historically, slaves consume about 90 percent of their production; we are so free that we are allowed to consume half).

12. The freedom to live where the government can forcibly take our land and sell it to a developer at below market value.
13. The freedom to have the government to keep us from buying and selling raw milk.
14.

15. The freedom to have a drug company to patent a common vitamin and require us to get a prescription for it and pay an exorbitant price where previously we could have bought it cheaply at many stores without a prescription.
16. The freedom to allow food companies to obfuscate labeling their food products as containing genetically modified organisms.
17. The freedom to have the government declare foods, herbs, vitamins, and minerals to have no health benefits; only drugs that it approves have any health benefits.

33. The freedom to have a person of the despicable race, the White race, who commits a crime against a person of the protected race, a colored race, receive a much stiffer prison sentence than that received by a person of the protected race against a person of the despicable race.

Most who voluntarily put on the uniform did so to defend the ideals embodied in the Declaration of Independence, the Bill of Rights, and the Ten Commandments. Unfortunately, they believed the lies that their government told them. In reality, they have not fought for these ideals, but to transfer more wealth and power to the rich and powerful, who control the U.S. government.
Wars are detrimental to liberty, especially for the winning side. Wars lead to a growth in the power of government. The power of government grows at the expense of freedom. As the power of government grows, freedom dies.
If these men and women in uniform really wanted to fight for the freedom of America, they would march on Washington, Wall Street, the international fanciers, the heads of academia, labor leaders, the major foundations, the leaders of the major churches and religious organizations, the Zionists, most think tanks, lobbies who lobby for more government, etc.
