    I just heard on the news that there are bogus emails floating around trying to scare voters that have children of draft age that are saying the Bush administration is quietly trying to institute the draft and diverting attention away from it to the election.

    When in fact it is Charles Wrangle and another Democrat who are actually the ones putting this legislation foward.

    Does anyone have any links on this???????

    I went to Congress.org and did a few cursory searches. No such animal in congress at the moment. There is some rumor in the public sector about a bill called HR 163, but nos such bill is under consideration.

    Apparently it's a move-on.org type campaign ploy to scare parents and young adults to vote for Kerry.

    And the best part is CBS and Dan Rather are treating it as a newsworthy story...................F@#*ing Unbeleivable!!!!!!!!!!
    I think my head is going to explode again..............I need to go do some CHI breathing :bang3:

    Charlie Rangel (spelling corrected) was on Real Time with Bill Maher the other night and said he would support the draft because President Bush says we are at war. The real purpose, I think, is to force people to decide whether or not they think this war is worth the lives of their young adults.

    Personally, I agree with Congressman Rangel. But that won't come as any suprise to most of you who have read my posts before.

    My problem is not so much with what Rangel is doing (It is stupid for the reasons he suggests) but rather my problem is with the hoaxers out there lying to scare voters into voting for Kerry.

    Are the Democrats really that desperate?????

    I disagree. I think the real purpose is to give the Democrat lie some substance. Never mind that the legislation was introduced by Dems, kerry will use it to scare the glassy-eyed slack-jaws who will believe anything that oozes from his mouth.
