Key Members Senate Foreign Relations Committee Calling for "Rethinking" of Military Draft
Anybody feeling the vibe of future conscription in the air? Chuck Hagel R-Neb, chair of the Foreign Relations committee is furthering that feeling with remarks like this. Also, Sen. Joe Biden, D-Del is saying the same thing. Not a good sign....

UPDATE - CATO has this on a potential draft.

Here is a petition where you can protest a potential draft.

My attitude is that we have troops stationed all over the world, many in places not essential to our national interest (if beneficial at all). Before we even begin to think about having some young men sacrifice their liberties, we should FIRST consider a reallocation of these troops to regions (Iraq/Afghanistan) where they are apparently needed.
