Again Which Political Party Wants the Draft?

We have done well with an all volunteer military, but there seems to be always one party that wants to bring back the draft. And it ain't the one that gets blamed for it.
Rep. John Murtha (D-Pa.) said Wednesday that he opposes the all-volunteer army and that a military draft, based on a lottery with no deferments, is necessary during wartime.

“I voted against the all-volunteer army because I didn’t think we could sustain a deployment in wartime without a draft,” Murtha said in a speech at the liberal Center for American Progress on Wednesday. “But we’ve had to lessen our requirements for the people going in and 82 percent now have diplomas.”

Yep, it the Donks, the same party that tried in 2004 to re-institute the draft, and now John "Redeploy to Okinawa" Muthra is pushing for it.

Ironic and with typical hypocrisy, the Donks are always scream that the Republicans are going to draft your sons, when actuality it is the chickenhawk Donks that are trying to force our youth into it.

We don't need a conscripted military, we are doing well enough with volunteers. Professional volunteer soldiers are more motivated than those that are drafted.

Just Say NO to the Donks!
