Why join the military if one isn't willing to fight for one's freedom?
Some people like the general structure and discipline of the military and don't really look at it as protecting America's freedom. Some look at it as a way to get a job later in life. Others look at it as a job to make money. There are many reasons to join the military, however I believe your question isn't just about why join the military, but more about fighting for freedom in general. What are some of the ways one can fight for ones freedom?
What are we fighting for? So far it seems for Oil Companies.
Awesome myth, the one about the military fighting for "one's rights and freedom". The military fights for those in the government who send them to war. In turn those in government are on a short leash by the lobbyist who keep "buttering them up".
