Well, my friends, now is the time to put your money where your mouths are. You all hate the idea of a draft, and, as has been pointed out, there are
bills before congress. One passed congress and is at the senate stage.
Now is the time to do our duties as Americans. Write your senators, write your congressmen, and tell them to vote down these bills. For every person
who writes, there are 100 people who feel the same way. A letter or an email is a loud shout! I, shortly, will be writing to my senators to vote this
bill down. I will also be writing to many opinion programs which are on TV and the radio. Do not let congress pass these bills like a thief in the
night. This has gotten NO media attention, and it's time that changed.
Why would you not? It would either take you 15 minutes to find the email address of your senators, write a letter condemning these bills, copy it to
all of your congressmen. The alternative is to sulk, say the system doesn't work and feel bad for yourselves, and have to shoot yourself in the foot
in a year. Personally, I'd rather take the 15 minutes.
The system does work. If you believe they're all going to get reelected again anyway, and know it, because of the electronic voting, and they don't
need to listen to the people, then it is time for you to leave this facist state and move to Canada or England. The choice is yours, but the system
does work, if we work the system.
