Then you are part of the militia. Unless you are in the military, and for some reason you don't strike me as the professional soldier type. I could be wrong about that, but if I'm not, then you already belong to the militia. Whether you like it or not!
I'm a proud, non-card-carrying member of the Troll Forest Brigade, but I don't recall signing up for "the militia."
You certainly didn't sign up, but you are a member of the militia regardless. Should I explain or are you going to take my word for it?
You're gonna hafta tease out your reasoning on this one.
Look, man, I gotta head out and do some work and won't be back until later tonight. I'll get more specific at that time. For now I'll leave you this to contemplate upon-
I want you to look at these pictures. Keep in mind that at the time these people were civilians who probably thought they weren't part of a militia either-
These poor fools didn't think they had any obligations either. They learned the folly of their thinking eventually. Though I grant you that each and everyone was put into very tough positions where certain choices had to be made, and every choice sucked.
But indeed, you are in the militia whether you think you are or not and if circumstances came around similar to what these poor saps had to deal with, then you'll find that your "I never signed a contract" argument won't be worth the rope that is used to hang you with. Each and every citizen of the US is in the militia, the unorganized militia. I'm not saying it's fair, but life rarely is fair as you well know yourself.
But I'll explain in detail later. Till then, Tooddle Loo and keep up the good fight.
