Comments: Charlie Rangel's Draft Replay

Pam,

Rangel also said the draftees would not necessarily have to serve on the battlefield. Well, what does he mean? Would he have them "serving their country" working on social programs?

Methinks it's a clever ruse to use the draft to yet again serve the objectives of the socialists -- bigger government.

I believe you are right! I've been reading more about this on the web and I've come to that conclusion as well. Rangel and his ilk won't be satisfied until we are all government automatons...

Please don't be stupid! The only reason Rangel even brought this up was to generate a dialog where by EVERYBODY in our great country sacrifice something for the vanity war dubya started. He doesn't want a draft. He simply wants everybody to understand that the War on Terra (accodring to Dubya) will last forever and there needs to be an awareness that someones kids must serve so we can kill the furriners. The thinking is that if donors to the republican party thought maybe their own children will be sent to die in this illegal war, maybe - just maybe, they would re-think their stance on the war. After all, I am for war as long as someone elses kids fight it for me. So please don't be naive. I give you folks much more credit than that. Is that credit misplaced? I hope not.
