3. No draft.
People like the chicken hawks above will always find a way to avoid the draft. People like me will pay the price.

4. Thanks for this list.
I have never voted for a non-veteran for any political office.
I never will.

Looks like I won't vote for anybody on your list.

I have voted for Republicans in the past.

Looks like I will not vote Republican this fall.
Looks like the Republicans are in trouble.

For I am not alone.
