Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry once again advanced the fearmongering cause of his campaign by insinuating a draft should President Bush be reelected.
With George Bush, the plan for Iraq is more of the same and the great potential of a draft.
The president couldn’t disagree more. And he chimed in on exactly this during the second presidential debate.
We’re not going to have a draft, period. The all-volunteer army works. It works particularly when we pay our troops well. It works when we make sure they’ve got housing, like we have done in the last military budgets.
In fact, the only draft bills before Congress were introduced by Congressman Charlie Rangel and Senator Ernest Hollings, both Democrats.
