Posted by LPTN Chair Tom Arnold to State Chairs List:
The Libertarian Party of Tennessee advocates for the ending of aggressive wars not fought for the purposes of national defense; which includes all of the wars the United States government is currently waging right now.
Being the Volunteer State, we support those individuals fighting these wars. There are many reasons these individuals enlist and give up everything, including their lives. We understand that these individuals do not have control over their assignments or jobs in many cases. We know of many who sign up to serve in the cause for liberty, just as we do, but the federal government abuses their volunteered service.
The LPTN Executive Board proudly consists of 6 military veterans, 50% of our board. Some of these are combat veterans who understand the stress that serving in the military puts on a person, especially in the face of moral dilemma.
We feel the best way to support our military is to bring them home and end the way the federal government has desecrated the United States Constitution and honor those who died defending it.
