thank you for bringing this to the forum.

does any one know where in the legal process this Act is?
How close to being passed? is this round one?

Don't worry it will not be pass for now.

Because Democrats are working on the presidential seat in 2008 and this will be a touchy subject right now with the mess in Iraq and possible attacks on Iran.

So at least for the next 3 years it will be stopped.

Rangel has introduced draft legislature before like this several times, I believe. Sounds like it's still just being considered.

I think that this would be benificial to the country as a whole. Not right away but after a few years when the 'first' ones have finished they should be capable a living a better life and being able to handle responsibilities.

Think of all the school drop-outs, maybe a program like this will teach them that they are not worthless and are capable of much more. I don't believe a program like this would be used, as some here will say, a brain washing techique so the US can take over the world!

I don't know about anyone else, but I wouldn't be keen on leaving my kids, wife, job, car, LIFE...and quite probably dying so someone can play war games and line their pockets. Can't fight it, can't dodge it...awesome.

Actually I agree with you on that, it will help keep some young people out of trouble and into a more discipline regime that will change them into more responsible adults.


Sorry for quoting the wrong part of your post.

this topic keeps popping up, then fades into the background. pops up, fades away, pops up, fades away, repeat....

is this an attempt to "warm us up" to the issue, to erode opposition by several false starts?

I have not seen this one in the news either. I know they've talked about the draft, but this sounds more serious than the draft.

Best thing that could happen to the US of A right now - THE DRAFT !!

That would get everyone away from their keyboards and into the streets to finally, really, make something happen.

I really hope this does not pass, and I do not think it will... too much public opposition. And like another poster said, there is a party fight for the presidency about to occur... they are gonna want to stay on our good sides... for now.

But here's my question...

Would this legislation have an effect on those in school? I know the draft cannot call you if you are a student... would this new thing-a-ma-draft also require college students to go active?

As a student myslef, I am curious.

Good post!

I dare 'em to make it mandatory. If I get forced away from my family, my job, and everything that I care about, you can rest assured I'm gonna make a nightmare come true for anyone close to me the first time they put a firearm in my hand. And that's something any of you that could possibly be sucked into something like this could do. When they teach you to use that firearm, turn it on them and use it. If enough people were to do that, they would quit the whole mandatory bullcrap.

Yes...that's exactly what democrats voted for.

Who really cares what the party is called...it still smells. If you just stand behind a party saying things like.."well this is what you get for voting democrat"...you just making more hatred between the two.

Anyways...I remember the republicans passed quite a few acts that nobody was happy about...remember those?

Just a different face to blame. imo

ask yourself this

IF THERE WAS A TERRORIST ATTACKS and i use that word terrorist very loosly IN this country would that law be passed, possibly without congress even reading it.

Ugghs new day same subject. This is not what this is about. Please Read the actual act and dont just say ohh I got something on Democrats. This is the problem with this country, He said She said garbage. And this is on both Right and Left Sides

What this was about was: No One could get out of the Draft including our Senators, Congress, and Presidents Kids. It was made to have the people who make these decisions think twice before going to war because their children will be going as well, might make it so only a Just war is the only war we fight.

There are several countries who have Mandatory service. This isn't new nor evil.

Don't use this for your right wing agenda crap and actually read the whole act and do some research into why Rangel is doing it.
