You live in a martial state. A martial state is NOT a Democracy. And since the courts, the media, the congress, much of academe, and of course the Presidency SERVE that military state, any illusions of Democratic consent are just that: illusions.
As I will continue to point out since the preponderance of this messaging is too redundant, reflexive, and repetitive to represent anything OTHER than a paid Talking Point--the emphasis on the citizen/voter instead of the machinery of corrupt power that LIES to citizens, HIDES its operations, STEALS their tax dollars to do so, CORRUPTS the justice system (on both domestic and international levels), and is CRIMINAL in every way (just as armed and dangerous as the most elaborate Organized Crime hub) does not translate to citizens not caring or somehow abandoning their "duty."
Most citizens are captives. They are captive to jobs that barely pay enough to cover food, rent, and education. Medical needs for a good percentage of citizens are a luxury.
The system is DESIGNED to disempower citizens, and while most muscle (at this point) is reserved for The Black community, that same network of faux law enforcement within a Draconian criminally unjust system is waiting for anyone else.
Nixon was part of another epoch entirely.
Until more people understand that 911 was the false flag needed to launch all these already planned wars, the realization of the level of betrayal (from govt.-business-military elites) won't be fully felt. Nonetheless, most citizens realize that the politicians arguably in office to serve them are serving themselves and the twin lords of profit and power (mammon and Mars).
You appear to salute Mars... since the subtext of your comment is not to question the war machine, just to use the draft to draw more young persons into it... as if war need not be placed under a moral or ethical microscope. It is the war mentality that is the Cancer to this planet and a direct factor in destroying the natural balance that previously kept the rainfall patterns stable and the seasons alternating in accord with their rhythmic "time zones."
