Oh yes, I responded.
I'm so thankful we have the ones who choose to enlist there to protect everyone's free speech rights.
Sure, it may bring a temporary stall to the forefront. Then 3-5 years from now when our military is weak and overtaxed, we'll be calling a draft to protect ourselves from being overrun by outside terrorist groups, inner militia groups, and other countries who have been lying in wait for us to do something so assinine.
Now or later. Even in peacetime, those who enlist know that they could be called to war any given time. That's part of the job. We've been fortunate to have kept it off our soil (save the bombings at Pearl Harbor), and quite frankly, I'd be most happy to leave it that way.
Slowing down the enlistments will also wear down the ones who already serve even more. It's not logical.
I hate that our men and women are dying; I am glad they are here to keep me living in a lifestyle to which I don't always like, but I sure love. Where's the pride? Who stands up for America as a country? The mentality is now "what's in it for me?" and no longer "E Pluribus Unum".

Great, now I'm fucked off and I have no one on whom to take it out. Bastard. He's banned from my list of entertainment.
