Freedom isn't free

How many times have you heard this one?
Used frequently as an excuse for war, or to justify it, soldiers dead or dismembered, well it's true, freedom isn’t free.
The soldier has chosen that line of work and it's always in the back of their head. Believe me; many of us are extremely grateful for those who do choose to serve.
This, however, is not the only price for freedom. Blood, I mean. No, there is an equally high price demanded of people who don't choose to enlist or otherwise serve to protect this Nation.
Responsibility and education. That might loosely boil down into awareness but that excludes necessary action.
What do I mean by that? I mean your vote. Your educated vote. That vote comes with the responsibility of educating yourself at this point. Hopefully, awareness to what’s really going on will stir folks to action. Obviously, the so-called ruling class would much rather a sleeping electorate. You need awareness and knowledge. This is the best way to thank those who enlist and otherwise serve to defend your rights. It’s a symbiotic relationship and the soldiers are getting the short end of the stick due to our apathy.
