Is there a reason why you believe you can't do a lot with your life if you join the Marines?
Also where did you hear that BS that you get a "better position" if you convince your friends to join.
Apology. I did not mean to say that joining the Marines was bad, or that Marines are doing less with their life. I meant to say that my friend is not joining it for the right reasons, he's joining it a) because of a girl b) because he didn't fully think it through. And that I don't think it's suite for either of them.
As for the better position thing, maybe it is BS, but that's what my friend seemed to think was the case.
And CAssIus, if you don't want to vote for Bush or Kerry, sign those petitions to get Nader on the ballot! Even if you don't agree with Nader, a vote for him (Or Kucinich is still running also) is a way of saying I want to vote but I don't want to vote for Bush or Kerry.
