Fight For The Future of Liberty

Equality under liberty versus equality under the State

Abolishing selective service for both genders would be a step toward equality under liberty.  It would be the same logic applied to the gay marriage debate: rather than legislating State-sanctioned gay marriage, marriage should be removed entirely from the purview of government.  Rather than bringing more people under the wing of the bird of prey that’s holding us captive in the name of equality, we should be making a concerted effort to free ourselves.
