Episode 22: Memorial Day--They Died for Our Liberty (not Collectivism)



We begin by honoring and recounting the blessed American military heroes who died to keep us free.

We examine the oaths of service sworn to by millions of past and current soldiers, sailors, airmen, marines, and guardsmen. What did they swear to protect? Hint: It wasn't a king, or a person, or even a government.

We listen to some timeless truths from the greatest president of modern times, Ronald Reagan. From his January 1981 inauguration, and from his speech at Pointe du Hoc on the 40th anniversary of the D-Day invasion.

We consider the domestic enemies of liberty--the Collectivists among us, the ones who foster and promote the Dependency Culture, and the role played by the detestable Parasitical Elites.

And we discuss our duty to the memory of those who died for our liberties to fight to keep them, and how our the crisis we face today will not require of us the same sacrifices they made.

  3. I'm so glad I decided to go back and listen to the Shrugging Out podcasts that I missed. Pete and Ronald Reagan are terrific in this one.
