Maybe a draft would be a good thing....
Advertisements [?]
I've fought the draft for more than 30 years. I also fought for the 18 year old vote, birth control rights and abortion rights. Quite frankly, I'm tired.

Maybe a draft would engage the young people and make this war personal for them. Maybe THEN they would take up the banner and fight.
