IMO, government contracts to perform government work, is still a government entity.
The government should not contract anything out, that they are specifically held accountable for. I am talking about in the US by the way. Our
government is given certain enumerated powers. Anything above and beyond that is wrong, IMO.
Yes, I would say nowadays soldiers are part of the welfare system known as the government. According to the Constitution, a standing army, especially
one in foreign countries, is a no no.
Oh and if I had my way, and the Constitution had it's way, drug testing would only be done by private businesses. Tell me, did not the prohibition
amendment and the subsequent removal amendment, set precedent about drugs? If it took a Constitutional Amendment to make a substance illegal, why does
it not take another Amendment to do the same?
Oh by the way, thank you very much for your service. I am not someone that is against the military whatsoever. I am against the way it is used though.
The US was never meant to be the police for the world, it is a bastardization of the Constitution and absolutely a wrong use of military forces. The
military was created to fight wars, police are meant to police, huge difference.
