Before I start, I don't have any statistics to back up my claims. My beliefs are just a guess. I'll put it simply: I think it's fucked up how the less fortunate do the grunt work for the rich people. My thesis is that if you were to find the median income for Americans, you would probably find that the majority of soldiers who put their lives on the lines would be on the poorer half. What pisses me off the most is that many rich people didn't even earn it. Bill Gates' son (if he has one) will never fight in a war. Some guy working 40 hours a week to pay his rent will. Bill Gates' son won't end up in a war because of LUCK. While some rich guy is banging supermodels, the average young guy is protecting our country (so the rich guy can bang his girl in a free country). Finally, I would like to say that the "rich" Americans who do serve their country just for the sake of being an American should be proud of themselves (as well as any soldier who puts his/her life on the line).
