Meet Michael New, One of my Heroes


When you join the military, you swear an oath “to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign and domestic. Also, society tells you that you are “serving your country.”

Read the story of Michael New, the Army medic who was given a Bad Conduct Discharge for the crime of refusing to wear a blue United Nations ball cap and serve under foreign officers.

Of course today, he would probably have been imprisoned indefinitely on presidential orders with no due process at all under the NDAA.


About Food for the Thinkers

My name is Doug Newman. I live in Aurora, Colorado, just outside Denver. Food for the Thinkers is mostly about the connection between Christianity and libertarianism. Most Christians do not understand libertarianism. And most libertarians do not understand Christianity. Hopefully, this blog helps clear up those misunderstanding. Check out my old page at And remember: When you let people do whatever they want, you get Woodstock. But when you let governments do whatever they want, you get Auschwitz.
