Here he is at 19, protesting in favor of drafting somebody else (since he had an exemption as a Mormon missionary–and being the son of a rich governor no doubt helped too).
And here he is explaining that none of his kids need to join the Army either. That’s for the little people. The way *his* sons fight for this great nation is… by supporting his run for the presidency. Such self-sacrificial love of country. No, seriously, he said it:
My sons are all adults and they’ve made decisions about their careers and they’ve chosen not to serve in the military and active duty and I respect their decision in that regard. One of the ways my sons are showing support for our nation is helping me get elected because they think I’d be a great president. I respect that and respect all those and the way they serve this great country.
As President, he pledges to start a pre-emptive war and send other people to suffer and die though. Needless to say, he also has the courage to torture.
What brave and self-sacrificing leaders we have. It will be far more than they deserve if our abused and exploited troops don’t mutiny against them someday.
