Ok. Here’s Rahm Emanuel on the compulsory civil service force. Train rides and barracks were discussed. I’m over the age limit by a few years, so count me out of this one. The rest of you saps under the age of 25 are bummed. Time to get on the train:
Why are the Democrats so obsessed with bringing back the draft? First it was Biden in 2005, then it was Charlie Rangel in 2006, now Obama, Emanuel et al in 2008.
When a pretty level-headed guy like you starts a thread like this, its very well worth a read. Should be interesting!
I just don’t get what their obsession with the draft is. None of the Republicans have called for one or even want one. No one in the military wants one either. Have you ever tried to get someone to work who doesn’t want to?
We already have a national guard and a functional police. The only thing that could motivate a desire for a civilian army (or whatever) is mischief.
This guy is Woodrow Wilson II. Wait until we have another Espionage Act.
