boot campOn 11/23/82 – 31 years ago today – I raised my hand and swore my enlistment oath. I love the Navy and I love the military. However, I hate the way our courageous sailors, soldiers, airmen and marines are being chewed up and spat out in endless wars based on endless lies that are waged a bunch of pond life who – for the most part – couldn’t be bothered to get one speck of dirt under their pretty little fingernails serving a single day in the military.



And please don’t thank me for my service. Rather, take a few minutes and get honest about the alarming amount of freedom we have given away over the last three decades … and get honest about the fact that it was given away rather than taken away … and get honest about the fact this was all happening long before the current president took office.

And stop demanding endless handouts from Uncle Sugar … and stop giving away your civil liberties in the name of security … and stop looking for a political savior.

And start realizing that tyranny ALWAYS comes wrapped in SOMEBODY’S noble intention … and start scrutinizing EVERYTHING the government and its media lapdogs tell you, even if you happen to like a particular government agency or elected thing or media hack … and start realizing that it is not right versus left or liberal versus conservative or Republican versus Democrat, but rather it is THE GOVERNMENT VERSUS YOU!

I saw it coming in the early 1990s. Why don’t you?

22 years ago, right about now, I had my Big Brain Snap about the direction this country was headed. Since then, I have been on a mission to rattle as many cages as possible. I would consider this my TRUE “service to my country”. And there are MANY true freedom fighters out there more knowledgeable and energetic and eloquent and devoted and influential than I will ever be.

Thank them before you thank me, as they are far more deserving.

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.
