19th-Century Americans Didn’t “Support the Troops”-Mises Institute

I did time as a Navy Seabee.
What I have come to understand of the true history of America, and of USA/DC, which is not the same thing, I can safely say, if I knew then what I know now, I would have never entered the USA military.

I thought I was fighting for my country, which at the time, i erroneously thought of as the USA, which is really just a for profit corporation, foreign to America, having been incorporated under Red Russian Rat Run British Empire “law”.

The USA military is used as a club, to threaten, or murder folks, so USA/DC, gets it’s way all over the world.

The used up Empire soldiers, are thrown away by the elites of USA/DSC, just as the elites who murdered Julis Caesar for trying to force social reforms on the Republic, which had to happen to survive, were throwing away when they could no longer fight in the Legions.

They were living on the streets of Rome, begging, just like tens of thousands of USA Empire soldiers who have been kicked in the ass, and onto the mean streets of homelessness, by USA/DC elites.

I explain to people, when all them folks indoctrinated to say, “Thank you for your service!” say thank you for your service, it means this in reality.

1: They don’t have a clue what they are thanking you for.
They did not eat shitty food, go without sleep, put up with egotistical dumb ass officers, come close to getting their asses killed several damn times, loose those minutes, hours, days, months, years, when the baby first walked, first spoke, or there for your wife as she is going through a pregnancy, school plays, birthday parties, funerals.

2: Further more, they don’t care.
Just a BS phrase like, have a nice day, or how are you doing today.
Most of them don’t really give a crap what kind of day you are having, or any of the other meaningless phrases Americans have been indoctrinated to regurgitate upon command.

When my wife buried her father, her only parent she had left, I was off in the big kiddy liter box of the Middle East, in the middle of a war.

By the time the Red Cross ran me down in that Charlie Foxtrot, I got to call her, he was buried.
I should have been there for her, but I was off tilting at windmills.

How about, the ships come home, foreign bases are closed, troops brought back to America.
Stop fighting wars for the Red Russians Rats, using American treasure and blood.

Someone attacks the American Home Land, then you get them.

Which is confusing, as Israhell, aided by the elites of USA/DC, attacked the American home Land on 11 September 2001, and the USA military has yet to attack Tel Aviv and DC.

How about Americans stop sending their kids to die, be used up and thrown away for the perverse pleasure and financial gain of Red Russian Khazarian Rats!

’19th-Century Americans Didn’t “Support the Troops”-Mises Institute’

Were an American from the mid-nineteenth century to time-travel to modern America, he’d be truly amazed to find that Americans are often expected to thank soldiers “for your service” and to act as if the military was doing the taxpayer a favor.

The lionizing of government employees in uniform has become standard fare in the post-9-11 world, with special discounts for members of the military, early boarding on airplanes, and free meals at restaurants.

It’s quite a contrast from the attitude of Americans during the first century of the republic, however.

Of this, the examples are numerous.

For example, in his memoirs, Ulysses S. Grant recounts how he trotted out into the streets of Cincinnati after first receiving his uniform as an officer. According to Grant:

I donned [the uniform] and set off for Cincinnati on horseback. While I was … imagining that everyone was looking at me … a little urchin, bareheaded, barefooted with a dirty and ragged pants … turned to me and said “Soldier! will you work? No sir-ee: I’ll sell my shirt first.”1
This attitude, Richard Bruce Winders explains in his history of James A. Polk, “illustrates the image of soldiers, common in the 1840s, as slackers on the public dole.”2 Indeed, even as late at 1891, a speech published in the Christian journal The Churman recounted Grant’s anecdote and concluded “the national contempt” for the army was based on the fact “it is ‘such a lazy life.'”3

Nor did such attitudes begin in the 1840s. In his biography of George Washington, Mason Locke Weems notes the lack of concern over American casualties suffered under Anthony Wayne in a battle with the Shawnee in 1794:

However, after the first shock, the loss of these poor souls was not much lamented. Tall young fellows, who could easily get their half dollar a day at the healthful and glorious labor of the plough, to go and enlist and rust among the lice and itch of a camp, for four dollars a month, were certainly not worth their country’s crying about.
