Ahh, America the beautiful, where it's legal to die for your country one year before it's legal to vote or get laid, and four years before it's legal to get drunk.
Ladies and gentlemen, I propose that either the last two items be lowered, or the first one raised. If you keep it legal to enlist at 17, but make it illegal to fight on foreign soil until 21, it still solves the problem of losing kids in far away lands.
Except on vacation.
Whoa, Nelly! Easy there, big guy. I'm all in favor of fixing a lot of social ills, but if you give me half a chance, I'll BE one of the rich and powerful.Aquatank wrote:in the end the rich and powerful (the top 20%) will still be that unless they get a tax increase that puts them in their place

When 90%+ of the wealth of the nation is locked in the hands 20% of the people who should be paying 35% by law get enough breaks to give them off with 12% there is something seriously wrong with the system.
