    I guess a strong attention to detail is not one of your virtues. Read the statement again:

    Here's an idea, instead of flushing another $1 trillion on a health care plan 2 people want, we can spend the money on the air sorties/ spec ops to wipe out the iranian government, which would solve most of the problems of the middle east rather quickly.

    I find it amusing that the people who are shrieking the loudest about going to war with Iran are the same people bitching that we haven't increased troops in Afghanistan enough, or that we're considering pulling some troops out of Iraq.

    Do you understand that our military strength is not infinite? That there is a limit to how much we can do at any given time?

    Are you serious?

    You really think that removing the Iranian government (questionable at best without a ground invasion and occupation) will solve most of the Middle East's problems?

    Institute the draft. Isn't that what demagogues like Barry wanted when Bush was CiC?

    The 13th amendment prohibits involuntary servitude. And in any case, instituting the draft is a moronic idea, as it would send the morale of the armed forces plummeting.

    Huh? I never heard anyone suggest we implement the draft when Bush was president. Certainly not Barack Obama. Is there a specific quote to which you are referring, or are you just making crap up?

    Nice try but the 13th amendment does not apply to the Draft. If it did then a draft would never have been instituted for Vietnam nor would so many have been concerned about it during the Bush administration.

    I assure you the draft is lawful....completely. And for as Barry put it the "necessary" war I should think that he would want to win it quickly and get it over with. Unless he needs some more staged photo ops at Dover.

    Where have you been?

    Here is a plethora of articles from liberals wringing their hands over a draft.

    Funny, Bush had NEVER said anything about it. It was just liberals trying to undermine him.

    Just because it's been done before doesn't mean it's legal. The 13th amendment prohibits involuntary servitude. A draft is involunary, and it is servitude.

    Huh? Everything on this website looks like they're just attacking Bush over the draft, rather than suggesting it themselves. Normally if you're going to cite a website, it should actually back up your argument.

    I really don't know what the hell you're talking about. I never claimed Bush said anything about the draft. YOU are the one who brought up the draft.

    He was talking about shared sacrifice, not everyone literally going to war. Do you actually believe he was talking about sending every person in America into a war zone?

    Now then, are you actually advocating re-instituting the draft? Or are you just trolling like the partisan hack you are?

    It's not involuntary servitude. It's involuntary service. The difference, draftees would get paid for their service.
