John Kerry muttered something about President Bush bringing
about a backdoor draft through the use of National Guardsmen in
Iraq.

I've got news for you.

If you want to see the draft reinstated, vote for John Kerry.

"Why do you say that?" you ask.

Because if John Kerry is elected president, there is going to be
a mass exodus from the U.S. military services.

Anyone who can get out will get out.

Re-enlistment levels will reach all-time lows – at least since
the Clinton administration.

Why?

Nothing would be more demoralizing to U.S. servicemen than a
Kerry victory. After all, this is the man who tells them they
are fighting "the wrong war at the wrong time." This is the man
who has opposed nearly every defense expenditure that has come
before him in the last 20 years he has served in the U.S.
Senate. This is the man who made a national name for himself by
condemning troops on the battlefield in Vietnam as war criminals.

Yet Kerry will not be free to cut and run from Iraq as many of
his supporters hope. He will have to play tough – at least for
awhile.

You tell me how he's going to do that with military men leaving
the first chance they get?

That's right. He will be forced to push for conscription.

It's ironic that Kerry's campaign has maliciously floated rumors
about Bush's plans to bring back the draft. Even if he wanted to
do it, Bush probably couldn't do it politically. Kerry could.
Kerry would. He would have no choice. His only alternative would
be cutting and running – and that wouldn't help him build the
kind of legacy he would need for re-election.

So what would Kerry do? Could he afford to surrender in the face
of massive defections by the troops? Would he forbid soldiers
from leaving when their time was up? Would he force troops to
stay on against their will?

God forbid there should be another attack on the country during
his presidency. God forbid there should be another foreign
policy crisis – in Korea or in Taiwan, for instance. God forbid
the situation in Iraq could worsen requiring even more U.S.
troops.

What would be Kerry's options?

There is only one: Bring back the draft.

It's funny how throughout history the people who seem to most
covet peace never achieve it.

It's funny how politicians are often forced to grapple with
their worst fears.

It's funny how things never go quite like you expect in politics
and world affairs.

But there's nothing funny about the prospect of a Kerry victory
– not for our armed forces.

I will bet you that better than 90 percent of U.S. troops oppose
Kerry. I will bet you they tell jokes about him during quiet
times in the barracks in Iraq. I will bet you that he is
disliked by soldiers in the field as much as he was by those
still on the field in Vietnam in 1971.

They will be leaving as soon as they can in the event of a Kerry
victory. There will be no stopping them. It will create
something of a national emergency – a crisis.

And John Kerry, with the support of his party in Congress, will
do the only thing he can do – reinstitute the draft.

In fact, it's worth noting that members of his party – and only
his party – already have introduced legislation to do just that.

So, once again, the political conventional wisdom is all wrong.
There is little or no threat of the draft being reinstituted in
a second Bush administration. But I would give you better than
even odds on it if Kerry wins.

Remember where you heard it.

It was probably snipped out but it's the Democrats who are working on
draft legislation, drafting young women too:

nsors

Click the Sponsors link at the above congress.org page. The Sponsors
link is at the left/right middle of the page a little ways down the
page.

Also, "sign" the petition to kick Kerry out of public office for
violating Sec. 3 of the 14th Amendment:

http://patriotpetitions.us/kerry/

(It might be a waste of time but who knows?)

Here's evidence of Kerry giving comfort to the enemy and violating
Section 3 of the 14th Amendment as a consequence of having previously
taken the oath as an officer of the United States.

Part 2:

http://ice.he.net/~freepnet/kerry/staticpages/index.php?page=20040604194
804799

14th Amendment, Section 3:

"No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector
of President and Vice President, or hold any office, civil or military,
under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously
taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United
States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or
judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United
States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the
same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may
by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability."

Don't forget to try:
