Well, not to put too fine a point on it, but freedom cuts both ways and I mean that in every sense. It cuts the direction of realistically having to allow recruitment to your own nation's armed forces and method of national defense or care in extreme disaster.......and on the other hand? Well, here is where it cuts in a way that benefits you!
See, the recruitment isn't entirely honest..and I doubt military recruiters have been honest back to the days of the Roman Empire "Sure young citizen...you will see far away lands, as Caesar promises! Oh no...we hardly EVER actually FIGHT...Naww... step over here, brave Roman! ...". That is where your freedom allows you to either be right there to have a little protest for their recruiting or just open competing sites and groups to spread the truth of Military service as you see it.
I'll be the last to defend Military recruiters as honest. They're like Used Car salesman. Their whole job is about selling people on doing something every fiber of common sense says is patently insane. I kinda feel for them at times.. Talk about work cut out for them these days.
