Not every soldier needs to carry a gun

From Dan Galvin's Thought For The Day mailing list:

Every citizen should be a soldier.  This was the case
with the Greeks and Romans, and must be that of every free state.
                              -Thomas Jefferson

Hopefully we'll never be in a situation where every citizen needs to take up arms to defend our country.

But I do think we all should be actively involved in defending our freedoms by supporting good candidates and good causes.
