I doubt this could EVER pass. The nation already saw what happened during Vietnam. The Dissent would be even greater now in our always connected society.
I also agree that voluntary recruits are dropping. I have an employee (19 years old) who was talking of joining the service about a year ago and now
his response is,
"Hell no! Why would I want to go get shot at over this crap?".
Can't say I blame him. If the threat comes to our shores I'll be more than willing to fight. I'm too old to enlist but that's what militias are
for . There is really no way to win a war against angry people.
