I get that being in the military is intimidating to many of you and that you feel you couldn't have thought. That however is you and is not the majority of those that stay and lead. However, a peace corps or job corps type operation has zero to do with the military but could be used as a group setting to teach compulsory courses such as first aid, CPR, gun safety and so forth. I will be all for it in a situation where you must be college educated to vote as well because then college would have to be funded by the government and then these compulsory courses could be integrated. There are many solutions.
And no being born here isn't automatically having skin in the game. How many votes were cast last election? How many people are in america? We average from 55% in a General year to 40% in a off year. What is very true is that voting is declining because people understand it has little to no effect on their lives. Unless you belong to a special interest group then that is very true.
