24. Draft = the self destruct button
Edited on Tue Feb-21-06 03:35 AM by Freedom_Aflaim
If we know anything we know that Rove is a pretty insidious schemer.

but he's not stupid.

Instituting the draft is the Whitehouse self destruct button. The moment they announce a draft is the moment that they lose any power they have. Bush's own base will be screaming impeachment.

Frankly, the only calls that I see for a draft are from members of the Democratic party (at least they say they are). Some folks have this crazy idea that if we send a bunch of unwilling folks off to die and kill, that we'll prove that dying and killing is a bad thing.
