    Not no but HELL no! The SS is already sexist as it is and I've got to sign up in like 8 months. It pisses the hell out of me. You know when you're just so pissed you can't formulate words to express your hatred? That's how I feel about that.

    If they were to do it, they better damn well draft 50% men and 50% women.

    Whoo, I'm not mad at you, I'm just... grrr I hate some of the stuff the government does.

    Including women in the draft won't get you out of it any easier Clint... there are too many fat people. ;P Fit guy like you is a prime candidate. Got flat feet? No? Bad eyesight? Go stare at the sun for a little while, problem solved.

    They won't draft a queer like me, not as long as the republicans are in control

    Besides I've got asthma and I'm my dad's only son so I've got 3 cards

    It's a principal thing. I don't think women should be treated differently if there is a draft. If the feminist groups don't complain about women not being drafted, I say they aren't really for equal rights after all and are full of it.

    Why am I getting so worked up over a hypothetical situation? lmao

    Clint, that is exactly the passion and uproar that would have prevented this mess, hence my comment... imagine the difference it would have made in the decision to go to war against Iraq

    Yep, Av8or got ya there, JLAP. The deployment of the National Guard looks like a bit of a "backdoor draft" in some ways, but think of how many folks would come out against re-instating the draft... then, if it gets put to law anyways, imagine how much more interested in foreign policy many folks would likely become. I could imagine a REALLY bad scenario unfolding in that case- civil war style even, maybe, and I would have no problems understanding it (and at this point I'll just quit- my thoughts on the stinking rotten military industrial complex don't seem to popular on this site )

    Indeed. Also, the devil I know of is better than the devil I don't know of. I'd take my chances with the devil I know any day.

    Clint, there is no way our elected representation would send their children to a conflict if there was a draft. It just wouldn't happen. They have to worry about reelection. Isn't it interesting that our politics is more important than international issues?
