What do U think???
For what enemy exactly?
It would certainly level the playing field between the "haves" and have nots"...
His kids first...
He does this every year! It's not really news anymore.
Like my son has said, he'd rather have someone fighting next to him that WANTS to be there and not someone forced to be. My husband joined the Marines in 1970, went to Viet Nam and he said you knew who you could count on and who you couldn't. Anyone forced to do something they don't want to do is not going to do their job to the fullest. Unless a World War broke out and we HAD TO have more military, then no, they need to leave it alone!
Why do we need a draft? There are people lined up for miles trying to get in, both officer and enlisted. The services can take their pick from the best of the best. Plus, we are in a drawdown. As usual, Rangel proves that he is a kook.
Not really news and Rep Frontbutt needs to just give this dog up. It's just not going to happen unless maybe there's some major World War like another poster pointed out, and even then it's no guarantee. Cross that bridge if we get there. At that point it would just be fishing for cannon-fodder. With the way world politics are now it's hard to think of a realistic situation where the US military has to pluck kids off the couch in order to combat an opposing army.
Sounds like a great idea.
Would put money in the pockets of a class of people that are woefully underemployed.
Uhh, America's enemies? Did you fall on your head or something?
