    Guard your daughters before Bush gives them the Draft:

    http://www.congress.org/congressorg/issues/alert/?alertid=5834001&content_dir=ua_congressorg

    Congress brought twin bills, S. 89 and HR 163 forward this year, http://www.hslda.org/legislation/na...s89/default.asp entitled the Universal National Service Act of 2003, "to provide for the common defense by requiring that all young persons [age 18--26] in the United States, including women, perform a period of military service or a period of civilian service in furtherance of the national defense and homeland security, and for other purposes." These active bills currently sit in the committee on armed services.

    Dodging the draft will be more difficult than those from the Vietnam era.

    College and Canada will not be options. In December 2001, Canada and the U.S. signed a "smart border declaration," which could be used to keep would-be draft dodgers in. Signed by Canada's minister of foreign affairs, John Manley, and U.S. Homeland Security director, Tom Ridge, the declaration involves a 30-point plan which implements, among other things, a "pre-clearance agreement" of people entering and departing each country. Reforms aimed at making the draft more equitable along gender and class lines also eliminates higher education as a shelter. Underclassmen would only be able to postpone service until the end of their current semester. Seniors would have until the end of the academic year.

    Women wanted equal rights... I think being forced in to a war is wrong for women AND men..

    Well, if Canada isn't an option, there's always Mexico...
     
  6. well i think that like equal rights...

    but i dont think they should be a draft at all

    and like AutumnAuburn said i also say, theyres always Canada,

    if i got drafted id run away to an island or Mexico or somewhere way away....i cant kill or do anything to help it.. its not possible for me to do..

    No, Canada signed an agreement not to harbor draft dodgers. They'll be checking your ID at the border. Of course if you want to sneak into Canada and work off the Canadian books, I guess that would be ok.

    Luckily for me, if I ever got drafted the army could put me to much better use behind a computer screen than on the battlefield, so I wouldn't have to worry about combat.

    My biggest issue with being drafted comes from seeing how America treats its veterans.

    if you get pregnant.. they won't draft you. of course, that's not a good reason to have a child, but just a thought.

    also, religious reasons won't work anymore. which is dumb. if you don't believe in the war (or any wars) why do they want you? i would think you'd be less help than all those eager to murder.

    I'm for the draft. If someone is willing to live in and love the country, then that very someone should be willing to defend her as well!

    But there is a difference between defending the COUNTRY, and defending the country's political or financial interests. WW2 was the last war fought against forces that posed a direct threat to the COUNTRY. In the event of a war to defend the COUNTRY, you wouldn't NEED a draft, as there would likely be more volunteers than the armed forces would be able to use.

    Every war the US has fought since has been in defense of political ideology or financial interests. In the case of Bush's crusade in Iraq, it is being fought to line the pockets of defense contractors and oil companies. Iraq posed no threat to the US, and drafting people of either gender to kill or die defending the profits of US corporations is about the worst form of slavery there could be. Fortunately, as the latest war for capitalism grinds on, more and more people are figuring out what's up, and recruitment into the military is hitting bottom FAST. If the corporatocracy wants a steady stream of cannonfodder, a draft is going to be the only way to get it. And instututing a draft might be enough to wake up the critical mass of people to put an end to not only the current war, but the corporate system that PRODUCES these wars.

    You are entitled to your opinion, Ellis. As wrong as it is, you are still entitled.

    Bug man, you haven't answered any questions or proven anyone wrong. You are just another full-of-shit republican.

    Why should any American woman have to get pregnant to avoid the draft?!
    It is obvious that since republicans took over that we are moving in the wrong direction.

    Vote Bush out!!! http://www.johnkerry.com

I'm democrat and proud as hell to be able to defend the place where I live and that I love. So pull your liberal, closed minded, judgemental pea brain out of yer hippy ass and join our sentiment, won't you?
