RE: The American military as a system of goverment
Holly crap, I became the puppet to blame for everything! Ah well, at least I am this popular, everyone remembers me even when I am far away.


Smile

I am now curious, who was the person that had extremely uneducated opinion on this?

Can anyone say "coup"? Sure you can.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

No, they don't.

And where'd you get the idea that the military is democratic?

When I got my ballot to vote for the president.

Within the military, you vote for none of your superiors. The president is a civilian.

What about when I vote to re-elect him this November? I will officially be voting for my Commander in Chief. And regardless, soldiers are free to vote for absolutely anyone on the ballot. Democracy.

Congratulations, didn't make a point. In a militaristic society, you don't do that. Regardless of who soldiers vote for, their lives don't change. The military is not like a job. You can't just quit if you don't like your boss. Making a militaristic society is ridiculous.

Ditto.

Tell that to all the now openly gay soldiers under Obama's anti-DADT policy. The president makes decisions on the lives of soldiers as well.

Ummmm, I did? Didn't like my bosses, preferred a different lifestyle, honorable discharge, here I am with new job and new boss. The socialist military society is populated by all volunteers. People like this lifestyle so much they re-volunteer every few years. What is wrong with this?

I can tell you that the military's position towards homosexuals has not changed in practicality.

The majority of people who join the military serve because it is a free passage into college. If the military pays for 4 years of college, you pay back with 4 years of service. You can't just say, "Welp, fuck dis, I'm out."

That's the same with lots of civilian scholarships though (at least where I'm from) ? I mean technically you can back out but then often you have to pay the money back...
