Draft Notice

There's a lot of heat being generated around the notion that the Democrats are pushing a military draft. Back in January of 2003, Charles Rangel (D-NY) did indeed introduce a bill that would have reinstated the draft. It languished in Congress until the other side of aisle needed to make some fast political hay as the bad news from Iraq became too shrill to paper over at the wrong time in the election cycle. So, for those folks who are trying to scare the crap out of young voters by telling them that Democrats are in favor of the draft because Charles Rangel thought he should make a point about war and the military, we at Boring Diatribe invite them to have a look at the reasoning behind the bill here.
