The military draft is an interesting issue for the Republicans to try to raise cash with. The politically independent base that the party needs to enlist for electoral battles to come in 2010 and 2012 may be of two minds. Former Gov. Jesse Ventura recently said he favors the return of the draft, while U.S. Rep. Ron Paul seemed to suggest he’d lead a Libertarian resistance movement in remarks he made in Minnesota after the 2008 Republican National Convention.

WTF?? How can Jesse Ventura (according to the OP) claim that he is for the draft, when he knows 9/11 was a CIA operation in order to bring our country to a war on false pretenses.
He know that we shouldn't even be at war at all, because no terrorist has ever even attacked our country, but he wants innocent people who never wanted to be in the military to die??
The only positive thing I could think of that a draft would bring, is that I'm sure it would bring an end to the war real darn quick... The war wouldn't end cuz we'd win (of course not). The war would end because America would finally grow vehemently opposed to the war. Right now, people don't give a rats ass about the war cause it's not really effecting them personally (unless they want to be in the military anyway, then it's their own fault). Things would grow to be like the end of the Vietnam war real quick if a draft was instituted.

I am for it, but instead round up all the Gang Bangers that love to play with guns and all the rest of the criminals and by all means give them the guns they so much love to play with when they are breaking into our houses or robbing us and then fly them over to Afghanistan and drop them off.
