68. To all you folks with draft age kids
you might want to pay attention to the job situation in this country. If there are no viable jobs in the USA your children might feel it is worth the risk and join the services on their own just to get a start in life (dosent always work that way). Hopefully there will not be a BFEE phony war going on at the time.
Have you thought of their careers or future? Where will they work? India or China look good. But the USA is in deep decline and our days as a super power are numbered.

This new generation has more to worry about than a reinstatement of the draft. I would ask that for their sake we should not focus so much on this single issue and start looking at the BIG PICTURE.
