People do not need to join the military for benefits. The government gives away plenty!

My point exactly. It's just turned into an advertising and propaganda and "call of duty/call to arms" scheme more than a legitimate military service for its true reasons.

Those who risk their lives and serve do deserve the benefits, but they should focus more on other aspects when recruiting. (Even though their current method will rope in more people into the bunch that maybe are not necessarily wanting to be involved in what they didn't think about).

But yes, I agree.

Honesty, another difference between children/criminals and adults. Pretty soon you won't have that excuse so you better make sure that buzz is worth a permanent record.

No drug dealer ever came to me wanting to sell drugs, I researched them for myself and administered them myself without any other help from people near me. You, like everyone else here, don't know my situation or my past and can't speak for anyone except yourself, to which you've done nothing so far; all you can do is reply to people by telling them they're wrong.
Actually everyone here has been 17 and I'm sure more than are willing to admit have experimented with drugs. I don't have to know your past to know your situation and where it will lead you, kid. I can give you a list of friends I buried to prove it.

But why is it a third-party and not a legitimately considered and supported opportunity for others to branch out and support less popularized and lesser known ideas? Because people view it as a waste to support those who are known by history's showing that their vote will not be seen in the large scheme of things.

I have no record, and don't ever hope to have one in the United States, I will almost certainly be emigrating immediately after getting my free education offered by my scholastic achievements and them moving on to better places.

You don't even know me, nor anything about my drug use or personality at all. You can tell me everything you want, but the only information you have is my age, and if it floats your paper boat to try to disassemble my moral foundation, so be it, do as you please, but I will believe and permeate those ideas I see fit, just like you ignore and filter what I say to you and others, got it?

Because the next number in line after 2 is 3?!?!?!!

If you want to know why third parties aren't popular, try talking to people outside of your circle.

Well good luck with that. We'll see you back when you figure out what the Found Fathers figured out more than 2 centuries ago.

Most of us here "got" a depth of perception you've yet to achieve kid. It's not because you're stupid or where you live, it's because you're 17.

and you know what.....I don't care how you feel about that because you will get over it, you will grow up, you will come to realize the truth just like so many of us have done before you.....assuming you don't wind up dead in a ditch first.

Then why don't you exercise your obviously supreme skill in this field by educating all of us who haven't had the opportunity to experience these alleged events in our lives that have brought us to the realization that we are all BrainSmashR minis inside.

Every human is equal and there is only one singular way to view the world and its workings. You are one deluded mind.

If every human is equal, how come you nearly failed 5th grade math?

A C is not a failing grade, nor is it even near such. I don't even remember 5th grade math, but I know it affected the rest of my classes.

Were you in calculus even in your Senior year of high school? Did you have full scholarships to enter a good well-known state college in their honors section? Did you apply and get accepted into two colleges and take classes all the while completing and passing your college-level courses in your junior year of high school? I never claimed to be an expert on any subject here, I've only come to express myself and to learn more things, and obviously I have.

My statement of equality was sarcasm, ass, if you're not also such a whiz in English, either.

Unnecessarily being rude here, but why the **** do you bother posting? As I've stated before, all you do is cheer people on, rather than producing any meaningful content to introduce to any post you stick your large ass into.

Yes well, for future reference, you might want to use the [sarcasm] tags[/sarcasm] indicating your intention. It's not like we can hear the inflections of your voice and your sarcasm has achieved nothing more than making you defensive about an event that will ultimately prove to be quite trivial in your life.....a C in 5th grade math.

As I said, state this event and educate me if you're that knowledgeable about these specified events you're citing.
