    something about this subject has always bugged me..
    I think a few Anti's who have trolled here have almost always opened with

    "I assumed that most of the people here would be military/police"

    That always makes me feel like they are saying
    "military and police opinions don't count"

    What they are really saying is that those who have sworn to Uphold and Defend the constitution have no actual say.....

    No. My parents were poor immigrants born at the end of the Great Depression that thought going to school and getting a good job were the absolutely highest priority. Not even considering all the other reasons for serving, it probably would have been a good investment of my time - I would have grown up sooner.
