Democrat To Use Draft as Scare Tactic

Well, they are doing it again. Representative Charles Rangel, the democrat from New York, has once again introduced legislation to reinstate the national draft in the United States. H.R.4752- Universal National Service Act of 2006 - Declares that it is the obligation of every U.S. citizen, and every other person residing in the United States, between the ages of 18 and 42 to perform a two-year period of national service, unless exempted, either as a member of an active or reserve component of the armed forces or in a civilian capacity that promotes national defense.

If you recall, the democrats used this scare tactic before. During the pre-invasion of Iraq, the same Charles Rangel who is currently pushing for the draft in 2006, introduced similar legislation in 2003. The purpose? To blame it on the Republicans. Do you remember during the Iraq war debate the left, with the assistance of the media, accused the White House of wanting to bring back the draft? It was an obvious attempt to scare Americans into thinking that George Bush was going to use the draft as a way to fight the war on terror. And it worked! People believed that the GOP was making an effort to force people to serve in the military when, in reality, it was none other than the Democrats calling for it. But that’s what they did. They introduced legislation they knew the American people would not like and then they accused the Republicans of trying to re-institute it. The media of course assisted the Dems in their propaganda…

That amazed me and this new attempt amazes me... It went unreported! The fact that the only people who were actually pushing for a military draft were the Democrats was never mentioned. So, look for the Dems in the mid-term elections to use the draft as a scare tactic. And don't forget, they will try to say that it’s the Republicans who are after this legislation; and the media will happily go along with this shameful ploy. It makes me sick...
