http://www.signonsandiego.com/news/military/20041005-2239-thedraft.html Disgusting how Democrats can propose the draft and start blaming Republicans for it. The only people who want it are Democrats. Democrats are the only ones mentioning it. They are trying to pretend it wasnt Republicans who did away with it to begin with. We eliminated it under Nixon and in fact Secretary Rumsfeld was one of the people who headed up the effort to eliminate the draft. Democrats are in alot of trouble if they think they are going to be getting more votes from this. quite the opposite. i pointed out that it was Democrats supporting it and all my friends and relatives who were worried about the draft are all for Bush for another four years. What on earth is there to debate? The President and Congress has said no there will be no draft. what on earth is there left to talk about?
