McCain will bring back the draft

How else will there be enough soldiers to fight in all these wars that we are going to get involved in start? Here's a quote from the horse's mouth at a recent Town Hall:
QUESTIONER: If we don’t reenact the draft, I don’t think we’ll have anyone to chase Bin Laden to the gates of hell.

MCCAIN: Ma’am, let me say that I don’t disagree with anything you said.

The questioner first has a long rant the poor care that veterans get, combines it with a rant about illegal aliens getting top medical care, and ends with the comment on the draft. Listen below:

...and I liked J-Walk's comment that if he's at the Gates of Hell, why follow him?

McCain thinks that war is the answer to everything. If McCain gets elected, it's just going to be one war after another, until he gets us nuked. The Gates of Hell are not that far away.

Sometimes I think a draft might be a good thing because people would get upset and turn on the politicos. But then I remember that even when everyone was upset and marching in the streets opposed to starting Iraq War II, Bush just said he wasn't running his policy based on public opinion and went ahead and did what he wanted to do all along. So I guess a draft won't really help my cause. Never mind.

very scary stuff. Think of the consequences if McCain got elected...they are broad and have implications for so many areas of law and public policy.

McCain may get his wish; it is not a done deal that Obama will be elected.
