Rep. Charles Rangel (D, NY) and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R, SC) are rallying support for reinstatement of a new draft for anyone age 18-42. Rangel claims to be putting the proposal into legislation in early 2007, after the Dems take control of the Congress.
As a result, 16 million americans, both men and women, will be put through shortened training camps, and possibly sent into strenuous combat situations. This in turn damages our current volunteer military, as it places people who may not possess the qualities to complete the mission, in charge or in danger with other people who do.
It is our right, and duty, to stop this before it even gets started, for the sake of our high school students, and for the sake of our current serving military.
We, the undersigned, call on all United States Congressmen and Women to vote down Rep. Rangel's proposal to resintate the draft, on behalf of all Americans, young and old.
