Dude, that's a terrible defense. "Yeah, I voted for the party behind the man who put this forward, but I'm not really a democrat."

You see, I didn't vote for any of those idiots. I wrote in my candidates.

Damnit if Grimace, Cobra Commander, and the few transformers I voted for didn't even make the news.

This is too easy. If it passes the House and Senate all Bush has to do is VETO it. If they overturn the veto....the dems will pay next election.

You think Bush is going to veto something that will get the Generals off his back, get his hardline base back, and give him the means to complete the war his way?

I didnt even throw out support for the candidates across the country.

A draft with an age range of 18 - 42??? Yes Bush better veto it! I'm 34 and I ain't going... I just ain't going.

Well, considering that that range is the new recruitment range why not?

And you don't have to worry, your medical history's got you covered. Even if it is gone, any disease, cancer, or other chronic affliction takes you out of the pool.

That sucks. You can't even smoke or get drunk to escape where the country is at the moment.

At least there's still video games, and Marijuana.

DISCLAIMER: Marijuana's illegal, and this post in no way is meant to condone illegal activity. Big brother is watching, and we all love him.

I'm 16 and plan to go to college. I do not plan to join the military. But were a draft instated, I would put my future plans on hold, NOT run to Canada, and join as an enlisted man. Draft dodging is a concept which just irks the heck out of me.

And relax people. There is no way it's going to pass, popular opinion to the contrary is overwhelming (7/10 say drafts suck). The politicians wouldn't dare go against THOSE odds.

More than likely, but the fact that a democrat suggested this idea has me a little more than spooked.

Their argument seems to be:

"AND WE'LL HATE IT MORE IF WE SEND OUR KIDS TO DIE IN IT! HAHAHA!!! TAKE THAT BUSH!"

True, but why do we have to pay them with the same money? Why does strangling the fat cats in Washington also mean stranding the people who try to teach in that godforsaken necropolis of a school system we have?

That's so..... unjust!
