With the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, the Congress bypassed my preferred policy: Shut Up. Nevertheless, like Ron Paul, I think that tax-funded operations should be open to all, though I hope no one enlists. After all, the US military does not defend Americans; it attacks other peoples, to the benefit of the merchants and bankers of death. Why kill and perhaps be killed for that? Still, the ongoing march of American totalitarianism is, once again, hilariously revealed. What is not illegal is mandatory. Now soldiers can be kicked out of the military for disagreeing with the new policy.12:02 pm on December 24, 2010 Email Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr.
