This anti-Rangel hysteria is just so damned silly
Advertisements [?]
First of all have any of us seen the bill he wants to introduce? He could tie the need for the draft to us staying in Iraq, he could say that a draft will be necessary when troop levels sink to a certain level, his draft could also give the Congress more oversight over the war.

I understand the concern of parents with draft age children and DUers of draft age or younger, but I think we should learn more about the bill he wants to introduce before we lose our minds. I know its the DU way to over react without getting the facts first but we must move past that.

This is an obvious attempt to say to the president as well as to all of America if we must send our kids to war everyone must serve, I bet you America's attitude towards war will change.
