If the Press Gang is revived

let there be NO EXEMPTIONS for anything save mental or physical incapacity. This incapacity MUST be severe enough for disability, no boils on the butt or shitting your pants. Also, there MUST be NO deferments for ANYTHING, not college, not religious or philosophical beliefs, not sole surviving son, NOTHING. Women MUST be included. Anything else is discrimination.

Also, if 18 is the age of service, then 18 year olds MUST be given all the privileges and rights of adulthood. There are cruise ships that will not allow a person under 21 to be a passenger, (Odd the Navy has no trouble allowing 18 year olds on their ships.) 18 should be the age of majority for ALL matters.

And if we are to draft bodies, we should draft money. Raise taxes on the rich to cover the cost, tax dividends and capital gains at the same rate as earned income.

Or maybe the US should just mind its own business, and cut the war establishment to a reasonable level.
