    WWII was not about national defense and survival. This doesn't mean our participation wasn't justified.
    We did NOT enter WWII to help suffering people. Japan attacked the continental USA and Germany declared war on the USA.

    Although we were an arms supplier, the USA went to great lengths to stay out directly in terms of war and fighting - and most Americans opposed getting into it, thinking it just another European WWI conflict in Europe and Japan and China battling it out too.

    We were in WWII because WWII was declared upon us.

    A country can do whatever it wants, as long as its people and other countries don't want to/won't stop them. So yeah, sure.
    The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of Conservatives is to prevent mistakes from being corrected.

    Whatever can you mean? That must be the responsibility of the Militia of the United States.

    No.

    And isn't it kind of weird? They want to take away someone's freedom, so that person can fight for freedom.

    But on the other side. When I went in the service there were still many around who remembered the draft and hated it. Said people who were drafted were **** birds, a common Marine Corps term for not very high functioning military personnel. I dont believe Marines were ever drafted, but the old guys around here probably know more. Not mentioning any names...you know who you are.
    I'm not sure if anyone replied to that in the several pages of this thread - but some Marines have been drafted. The last time that I know about is the Vietnam War.

    Also, why would anyone vote yes to this?!?!

    Or were they just voting yes because how technically the government can initiate a draft?

    Or are they saying that it's actually the right thing to do?

    It makes a huge difference to which sense it means - when people vote yes or no to this.
