It's remarks like you just made that create the need for policies like this, Well I don't think it's going to benefit ME or infringe upon MY rights, how do you think you got those rights & who do you think fought for them? That attitude was exactly my point, if there is nothing in it for me let someone else do the dirty work. I heard somewhere that it is somewhere less than 0.03% of our population that either serves or at least tries to join & I bet you don't see any from the segment of the population that has the most to gain monetarily.
