instead of a military draft, lets revive militias in states and arm them, with only 1 goal; to defend the homeland; no foreign operations... ?
I 100% agree to this. The OP seems to think that this country is suppose to be a Democracy when it was setup to be a Republic. Big difference. You want to get kids off the darn couch and active in LIFE the way isn't to send them off to war to be killed. First, we would need to establish militias and take back our own government. Our own country is WORTH fighting for. Give the schools back to the local communities and let the teachers really teach these kids again. Get the dollar back to being worth something again (backed by gold or silver) so that we can't have run-away inflation. Prices would drop like a ton of bricks. Then maybe families could have the option of one parent staying home with the kids (more control of our own kids - it's not the governments job to make them grow up or straighten up). Take the corrupt officials of our government (from President down to Congress - maybe as low as State assemblymen) and hang them for treason against the several states of America. Kick out the Fed Reserve and the IRS. That is what American's need a draft for... not a military draft... it needs a Patriot Draft so we can kick some Neocon butt.
