Welcome to Liberrants, a blog dedicated to editorials, discussions, and studies of all things libertarian. Don't let the title mislead you; it's merely my attempt to be creative in describing myself as a "hopeful curmudgeon" who embraces the goal of the free, peaceful, economically vibrant society envisioned by America's founding fathers. Jump in! Contribute! Enjoy!

A critically thinking curmudgeon whose goal, in addition to creatively venting about the imperfect world in which we live, is to induce critical thinking in others. The ultimate goal is to help bring about a peaceful world in which we can all live in freedom.

Cannon Fodder for the Empire, Part Deux

Obviously the legions are still having an impossible time recruiting. Even brain-dead latchkey Generation-Y Americans, minds deadened by video games and saturated with violence, have no stomach for getting themselves killed in a war that repels even their mushy young proto-sensibilities.

This article makes it clear that Uncle Thug will do anything, seek anywhere, abandon any standards whatsoever in the effort to keep the MICC's war going full speed with fresh cannon fodder. Don't be surprised if huckster thugscum wearing the uniform of the United States Army show up on your father's or grandfather's (or your mother's or grandmother's, for that matter) doorstep, spewing their pathetic attempts to appeal to his "patriotism."

Amusing, yet sickening at the same time.
