Name That Party That Wants A Military Draft

The Donks during the 2004 election sent out fliers and make phone calls to people scaring them saying that President Bush and the Republicans wanted to reinstitute the military draft. Which was all a lie, because the Donks themselves were the ones with a bill in House to do just that.

Now it appears that Charlie Rangel is at it again, trying to introduce another bill for a mandatory draft.
Rep. Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.) likely will introduce his controversial legislation to reinstate the draft again this year, but he will wait until after the economic stimulus package is passed.

We don't need a draft seeing as we can meet our active service numbers through volunteers. So why is Rangel pulling this stunt again?
Rangel argues that the burden of fighting wars falls disproportionately on low-income people and that cost should be borne more broadly.

Is Rangel a natural moron or does he have to work at it? Our military is manned by men and women that VOLUNTEERED, it has nothing to do with income. In fact if look at the statistics of our military numbers you will find, educated, hard working people that are not low income, but from middle class families.

Thank God other members of Congress don't take Rangel seriously and know that his bill would be the death of their political careers.
