Ah fer...I wasn't referring to the dumbass bill. I was referring to
your "promise to fight for...yadda yadda" and putting it further. I am
addressing the general, knee-jerk reaction against a draft, not just
THIS Bill-version of a draft. The "slavery" crap, the auto-rant against
a draft in general, not just the silly Bill indicates a thoughtless,
knee-jerk, emotional rejection of the IDEA of a draft no matter what
(for some here). THAT is what I'm getting at. If one is soooo attached
to their civil liberties as many espouse, they seem ONLY willing to
fight for them lightly. If a danger to them came from an outside enemy,
would your reaction against A draft be so solid and vehement?
THAT is what I mean by push come to shove. I'm not talking about taking
a basic political-civil position and turning it into an internal
gunfight, I'm addressing an auto-antidraft response by some that
indicates opposition to it NO MATTER WHAT.
First off, and for the record, NO, it is not at this point really
necessary to start a draft. Might the circumstances change in the next
few years? Certainly. Might a draft be needed then? Perhaps.
Separate for a moment the specific Bill in question from the GENERAL
question/idea of a draft.
