“Most armed; most free.” So the renowned Italian thinker and strategist Niccolo Machiavelli described the Swiss five centuries ago.

Germany and France wisely decided to leave the Swiss porcupine alone. Some leftist historians claim it was because the Axis needed the Swiss banks. Nonsense. Berlin and Rome had access to banks in neutral Portugal, Sweden and Turkey. The real reason was all those angry Swiss mountaineers, with their rifles zeroed in at 300 meters.

I’m a fan of Switzerland, its neutrality, and its “common sense”.
The little L libertarians love the porcupine. All defense; no offense.
The Department of Defense? What a joke.
National Guard? Which nation?
We have so many problems, why are we seeking more?
