    You can't have everything. If you want freedom, you've got to be willing to defend it. Freedom is not a commodity. Our freedom is being defended by a group of people who are willing to risk their lives for it. What are they defending? A bunch of people who don't appreciate the value of their freedom anyway?

    did I MAKE them do that? no. and I thank them for doing that but I don't think attacking iraq was defending our freedom, nor that it was the best country to attack (even at the time)
    we don't NEED a draft. everyone says so. the soldiers in iraq, the bush administration, etc. No, you can't have everything, but you can have freedom without a draft. you CAN'T have freedom with a draft. and I WILL defend my own freedom by going somewhere that doesn't make me kill people or be at risk of being seriously hurt/killed.
    and I do appreciate the value of freedom. that's exactly why I don't want a draft.

    and I disagree that we have the highest standard of life. I really don't remember the name of this country... norway? it's an european country anyway... that is the richest country per person (the US is the richest partly because of it's size) and it even has a national surplus and not a national debt. people there also work less and are better off.
    .
    We HAD a national surplus untill 2000 when the dot.com crash happened. Luxemburg happens to be 1/4th the size of rhode island in the swiss alps and is world renown as THE place to do banking. Many famous people have bank accounts there and its the place whre The World Bank is located.
    that makes no logic
