    I think we should raise the age to 60 to be able to serve in the Armed Forces ... that way you had a life before you're killed.

    Dude! Be reasonable.

    The draft should be raised to 21. Too many kids being killed pains me.

    18 is fine. No reason to eliminate perfectly good candidates from the draft. Younger soldiers, properly trained can handle combat better than new older soldiers. I went in when I was 17, fully expecting to see combat. I did at age 20 and thoroughly enjoyed myself. As I got older I did not enjoy it at all, but did my job.

    18 isn't fine. The legal age from drinking to voting should be 21. Drivers licenses moved to 18. Military service 18, active duty can vote.

    Just my opinion.
    People who enter the US without our permission are illegal aliens and illegal aliens should not be treated the same as people who entered the US legally

    What?



    It's really important to....."capture kids when they're in high school", Nancy?

    Why would you be calling them kids, Nancy? Perhaps because.....they are??!! You want to allow 16 year old's to vote? You're just admitting that they're kids....ie.nave and immature....and yet you want to "capture" their vote. They cannot carry nor own a firearm or even purchase cigarettes. They cannot purchase alcohol, serve in the military, they're seen as minors if charged with anything.....and you wish to allow them to vote?

    Stupid people make stupid suggestions.
    I agree. That is CRAZY !

    18 is ok tho!

    Enjoyed yourself? Did you enjoy killing innocent people?

    You fail to understand what you are talking about. In combat both sides mean to kill one another. Does that make you piss your pants? My goal was KTF- kill them first.

    Maybe. I don't know the exact count of liberals.
    Liberals are a clear and present danger to our freedom and our society and our morals.
