    I don't happen to find that telling the truth of a political agenda is belittling those that fall at its feet.



    I don't doubt many people don't care for my flat out rejection of falsehoods they try to push on me.


    Everything about our country seems to be part of a political agenda to you..Why is that?

    Conscription can never be any form of slavery for the Militia of the United States; it is merely an obligation of the citizens in the several States.

    Not just several states. Under the US code all able body men are the militia of the country.

    I personally believed that it does if that country is going to survive.


    Added in:

    In regards to the United States I'm talking about an official declaration of war being declared.
    They have a right. But there better be a need, and a war of necessity and not mere want or the public outrage, in a democracy, will end the war sooner than otherwise.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Forcing people into service for you is involuntary servitude and thus slavery. Since a draft is the government forcing people into service for them it is slavery.

    Government is all about the political class imposing their agenda on everyone else. It is nothing else and can be nothing else.

    A few reasons.

    1. I can not endorse expanding the draft to more people when I can already not find myself in agreement with it.
    2. I never agreed with sending women to war to begin with.
    3. I can not agree with something that might very well affect those women I love. In a few years my daughter will be eighteen and to be honest I couldn't live with myself if I endorsed forcing her to go to war.

    I understand and can respect that but shouldn't be fair across the board in a world of equal rights if a man can be force to war shouldn't women be as well?
