    Exactly how you feel? I agree with much of what he said, but a mandatory 2 years of military or community service?

    That sounds like Obama's idea.

    What's your point? That since you lived during an era when there was a draft you feel that any person in the country should serve a mandatory 2 year stint in the military or community service?

    You call that freedom? Sorry, that sounds pretty fascist to me.

    A draft in order to protect the freedoms in this country is one thing. A draft is acceptable if we need to protect our national borders or deal with a threat to the internal security to this country. But a mandatory 2 years service for no reason other than to (according this this guy) teach kids a lesson and some values...you got to be kidding me.

    Oh...you also weren't eligible for the draft, unless you really aren't a "Lady". So, I really don't get your point.

    I enjoyed the rant...

    but it is riddled with far too many mistakes and half truths to suit me. :thumbsup:

    I'm all for a draft---------just not all that excited about a "mandatory" enscription for every citizen----------see???? A draft is a draft------it is a lottery selection of groups of eligible men----your "number" may come up-----and it may not---then when it does come up----you must meet physical and pschological evaluations------you wanna weed out the nutt cases, don't cha?????:laugh:

    A mandatory selection means-------your # WILL come up-----and you serve no matter your physical or mental ability

    Anyhow you put it-------Camp LeJuene:love2::love2: is just a social security number away!!!!! That Drill Instructor will kick you so hard in the rear end-----you'll be tastein' shoe leather!!!!!!!!!!

    You didn't read very clearly then. I clearly stated in what cases I thought a draft was acceptable.

    Should I assume you are for mandatory military service for all Americans?

    Right, this is what old men and women like to say. Let's start a war just so long as it's the young men that die. I think everyone who supports a war should be required to fight it.

    You really want to do away with the Electoral College?

    That means that California, New York, and Florida would probably elect every president from now on.

    We shouldn't have bothered actually commenting on the video she posted. We were all supposed to just watch it and then agree with her. If you disagree with her on the contents on the video, she will just try and make jokes and ignore the discussion.

    I enjoyed this guy's "common sense" video but was disappointed with this one. I have to agree with Carpro it was a neat rant but it lacked alot in the accuracy department.

    Then maybe one of you could refute the inaccuracies. Just a thought.

    Yes, I did notice that. Great video. This is how we should be reacting to the idiots leading us. Instead, most of us argue back and forth with of the two present parties (born in the pits of hell) are better for our nation. Thanks for the link.
