Comment: Upping the ante by a reinstating the draft

(See in situ)


Upping the ante by a reinstating the draft

is a bad idea. In effect, Ventura's proposal is a collective hostage situation that wants me to risk my children's lives in the hope the majority of the American sheep will be roused to stand up against unnecessary wars because they now have skin in the game.

Sorry, I do not share Ventura's optimism of waking a sleeping giant with terrible resolve by that method. If the majority of Americans have tolerated the abuses of personal liberties this long, why should I gamble my and other kids lives to be drafted on such a dismal record of apathy and complacency? No way, Jose!

One might as well bet the farm on a three-legged cart horse to win the Kentucky derby.
