  •  I wanted to join the military after college... (0+ / 0-)

    But the military is not an honorable place right now. It's got no just wars to fight, it's making its service members serve 3, 4, 5 tours of duty, and I'm not keen on getting raped by my comrades. And if a pro-war republican gets elected in 2016? No thanks.
    I don't think change in the military will come from the bottom up. Show me a real progressive commander-in-chief, and I'd think about it.
