I don't always agree with what the government does but I do believe in the foundation upon which our country was built. If I am called in a draft, I will fight for my country and my family. If the fight is wrong, then I'll figure out what to do when that time comes but I will stand for what I feel is right.
I wouldn't abandon my country, but I would try to change how they address something if we are wrong in what we are doing, but this is my home, where my family is, and I will defend it with everything inside of me.
We're not perfect, but we are much better then some of the alternatives.
Awesome answer, Bro!
I think everyone who enlists shares your exact sentiments (I certainly do/and did when I enlisted).
I totally understand the OP's reason for abstaining if drafted. Truth is, we don't want people fighting next to us who don't want to be there. How could I trust that person to have my back if he is not as committed to protecting my life as I am his?
