A global nuclear holocaust is more likely than Romney reinstating conscription.

I'm too old to draft.

Seriously my dad missed the Vietnam draft because of education deferment, then marriage deferment, then dependent (me) deferment. All of those were gotten rid of shortly afterwards. Those younger than him including his brother were f**k.

no way there will be a draft, even if romney wins.

but drinking and having sex all day sounds like a good alternative to fighting a personal war of choice of some shapeshifting neocon chickenhawk

It takes months to train soldiers to even an adequate level of readiness so even if there was a draft (which I doubt will happen), a hypothetical war with Iran would be over- unless you plan to occupy the country.

Where do you get the notion that Romney will 1) go to war with Iran, and 2) institute a draft to do so?


But, in the odd chance that you are right....First, they are unlikely to take me due to my age. Though I'm still in the legal "eligible" zone for the draft, since I'm under age 45 (I think that's the cutoff, but I may be wrong), I'm old enough that the younger guys would be taken first. Second, educational deferment while I finish up my doctorate. Third, even if those two didn't pay off, I'd file as a conscientious objector. I am not going to submit myself to fight a politician's war. The notion that the military "fights to protect our rights" is ludicrous. Not since WWII has there been a war in which the US was actively threatened and our lives as American citizens in danger. Korea, Vietnam, Bosnia (though not a "war" per se), Gulf War, Iraq, Afghanistan...all of those were merely wars to further the political ambitions of American politicians and to honor treaties entered in to by American politicians. If a foreign power invades American soil, I'll pick up a gun and defend my home and property, but nothing further. I'll pick up a gun to defend my own life, my property, and the lives of my family. Until that point, no politician and no war is going to get me in a uniform (no matter the cause, the politics behind it, the Commander-in-Chief, or the location).

This has been the case so far, but mostly because almost all the threads here are by me and Saz.

While the purpose of The Pulpit is to allow members to start topics without a supporting article/link, it also is not a dump site for conspiracy theories. There isn't one shred of proof that Romney will institute a draft so, therefore, I'm locking this thread and moving it where it belongs.
