I like how you say you didn't stand by and let the country go to hell. As proof of this, you worked to get Bush elected. Corrupt, criminal Bush
number two. I see also that you supported corrupt, slightly less criminal Bush number one. Congrats, you provided a real service. I mean, it's not
like the country has gotten 50 times worse in the past 7 years.
So tell me, how would serving in the military help me become a better person and better American? Really, it just seems to me that it would help me to
learn to submit to whatever someone with more money than myself decides I should be doing.
I won't even begin to tell you what I came from or where I've pulled myself up from. I will however say that I now have a good job and future in
health care (which I realize is far from the most noble field, but I help more people in a single day doing my job than I would being target practice
for someone who is justifiably upset about the means by which my country "assisted" theirs). I've carved myself a nice little life out of almost
nothing and I will fight for and fiercely protect what I have made myself and my family. I will not fight for someone else and their agenda or
I did all of this after at the age of 18 being turned away by the American military. At that age, with whatever problems I had, I believed I could do
some good as a Marine. I also thought it was my only option and last chance to redeem myself. They had other feelings, and I was left to figure out
what to do without the only plan I had in place.
Maybe I have a guardian angel or something else I don't really believe in, but something kept me from joining that wasn't a series of recruiters. A
few months after my final denial, 9/11 happened and started a chain reaction that showed me how wrong I was to think that was my only way of helping
people, and how corrupt the officials I would have been fighting for were.
Anyway, when the fight comes to me, I will be more than happy to fight and possibly give my life on my terms for what this country SHOULD BE and a
Constitution meant to better us as people and a National whole. I will NOT fight a war on the soil of someone else, for the almost sole benefit of
someone else, under the terms of someone else and "for" a constitution stripped down by some one else to serve their personal agenda(s).
So don't lump a whole generation together, and don't be so quick to try to volunteer the lives of others for something they probably don't believe
in. Some of us are smart enough to see people like you for what you really are. By the way, I'm 25 and have never played a computer game, never had a
blog and never slept in a basement. Sorry to ruin your stereotype.
Sorry for the rant. People and comments like this really get under my skin.
