59. Government OF the people, by the people, for the people
You can't just expect the government to work for us. You have to take a leadership role if you want it to represent you. And its our responsibility as citizens to make the sacrifices necessary for our country to work.

The draft is glorified feudalism.

Not if every citizen a certain age is drafted, it isn't. Its a great civic experiment.
