63. There's no way in hell....
....that I would ever serve in the military. Don't get me wrong, I support all those where are/were in it, but I don't believe that I should have to risk MY life for the sake of the "elected" officials. Just because I was born here doesn't mean I'm going to be willing to die for the sake of the country (or oil perhaps).

It just pisses me off on how some of you are willing to bring back the draft just to have people get pissed at Dubya. That's the most absurd thing I've ever read here.

I'm a 21 year old, I have a full life to live yet, and I should NOT have to be FORCED to fight when it's in my beliefs that fighting IS NOT the answer in the first place.

If the draft comes back, there's no way in hell I'm going to stay here. I'm going to pack up my bus and move to Canada.

This just makes me sick. :puke: :mad:
