Karon, you should be proud of your sons and their commitment to keeping the values of the United States alive. When I look back upon the decision to make serving in the military optional, I think that was a mistake. I also think giving up to 50% of the citizens the right not to pay any income taxes at all was a mistake as well. I don’t care how little that should be it would have required them to put a little “skin in the game”. I can remember my father doing his own income taxes and writing a check for $400-$500.00. While I’m sure it was a burden it also made him more proud to do so.
Thank you for writing.
