    You won’t have to - there will be war in our own streets if a draft is instituted, short of world war of course.

    During the Revolutionary War, Congress called up the State militias. Washington proposed legislation to compel registration for conscription.

    That bastion of Constitutional Rights, the Confederacy, enacted a draft almost a year before the Evil North.

    Ok? Big deal. Lincoln also suspended the bill of rights and Wilson's League of Nations ushered in the stupidity of multilateral security institutions like the U.N. Translation: Historical precedents don't necessarily equal "good idea". I take it you are for this (draft) too?

    There will be only so many volunteers to fight a perpetual war. So far we have been able to keep up, mostly because of the patriotic fallout from 911. We have used a lot of that up. No telling what the future will bring.

    If we are going to being involved in beaucoup foreign entanglements we will need beaucoup man power.

    The Liberals will have to deal with nobody wanting to serve under a weak Commander in Chief and their stupid use of the military for "Meals on Wheels" or killing Christians in order to protect the Muslims or fight warlords or whatever.

    The NeoCons will have to worry about cannon fodder for their stupid little interventions all over the world.
