besides forcing Congress to pay attention to its constitutional war-declaring and funding, it would hold our humble public servants accountable by making them share the risk currently foisted on a few million, mostly low-income families

Why would a child or grandchild be held responsible for actions of their parents or grandparents?

Since there’s no draft, people who join the military agree to be subject to the political whims of our politicians. Just make sure to keep opposing the draft.

If the parent votes for war, then their kids get to go first. That will make them wise up. We have been in a continuous war since 2001 , if you have not noticed.

Targeted conscription to exact some kind of political vengeance borders on state sponsored terrorism.

A draft should be mandatory any time we go to war .

We wouldn’t still be in Afghan 18 years later if there was a draft .

It’s a check n balance .

The conclusion to this train of thought is military service as a requirement of citizenship.

Well, of course.......why should those voting for war be held responsible? Why should they have their loved ones risk their lives. Of course.

What if it is a small war? One that is over before the wave of conscripts can even finish training?

Still . Even if it’s a small draft, it will make lawmakers think twice about unjust wars .

US bailed before that . And the public pressure because of the draft really helped get us out.
