Memorial Day is a holiday for honoring and remembering the brave men and women who have given their lives so that all of us past, present and future are assured of Liberty and Justice.
So many of the military past and present (myself included) believe strongly in the principles of Liberty that our country was founded on and understand that the Constitution was created to restrict and limit the powers of the Federal Government and was never about restricting the people’s freedom.
Individual freedom and responsibility are central to Liberty because freedom without responsibility leads to chaos which then leads to government intervention and in the end always leads to government stripping away our freedom.
We are not a perfect people but this is the beauty of Liberty as one has the freedom to fail or succeed and this is what makes the American Experiment so perfect.
We all owe a huge debt of gratitude to these men and women and the best way to repay this debt is to do everything we can to restore and preserve the Principles of Liberty they gave their life for.
