Accountability for Washington’s Wars

Filed under: — Al @ 11:45 am

Bring back the draft. An all volunteer military is one of the worst ideas I can think of. It naturally leads to the whole idea of “the troops are better than us” stuff because only a certain type of person would go to war voluntarily. This idea is backed up by rhetoric from almost everyone in the media. Which then must make the troops wonder at some point, why am I dying for people who are just sitting at home drinking and having a good time, when I’m the better person? A draft democratizes war, and it helps ensure that a majority of Americans are in favor of it because they are the ones that will be fighting and dying for it.
