The Coming Storm

Many people probably don't know this, but The Republicrats are setting up all the required prerequisites so that they can reinstate the draft.

HR 163, was introduced by New York Congressman Charles Rangel (Democrat) in January 2003 and here is just a snippet of what it says:

"It is the obligation of every citizen of the United States, and every other person residing in the United States, who is between the ages of 18 and 26 to perform a period of national service as prescribed in this Act...." Those who object to military service on religious grounds would be required to serve in a civilian capacity "that, as determined by the President, promotes the national defense, including ... Homeland security."

This is bad, but even worse is that the Selective Service is already actively seeking members to sit on the new draft board already before the bill has even been passed, ( Is the fix already in? Do they know something we don't?), in fact I received the letter asking me to be on the county board in Feb. 2004

Isn't it odd that they are actively recruiting members for the boards before they have a law establishing the draft?

The Shrub's "No Child Left Behind Act" contains a provision requiring schools to collect information on each and every student and forward to the Selective Service System contact information.

Nope they sure don't want No Child Left Behind when the troop transport leaves.

Now don't get me wrong, I support the US Military and our troops 150%. The vast majority of the young men and women in the service are some of the best we have to offer, with a great sense of honor and duty.

What I do not support is ass-hat politicians getting us involved in a war due to their ineptitude and then expecting anyone between 18 and 26 to be cannon fodder to further their personal/collective agenda.

I'm sorry but the US Military should only be used to protect our country from a direct threat, not the world's police force or peace keepers or mercinaries for energy companies.

Have you noticed that the ones that are yelling loudest about using them in this manner are also the ones that have never spent a day being shot at? Funny how that works isn't it?

Vote Bush/Kerry 2004- No matter who wins, We the People lose
