You failed to mention in your post that the
Bill's you refer to S89 and HR 163 were all written by and
co-sponsored by Democrats.

These are links to the bills:
http://www.congress.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/z?d108:SN00089:
http://www.congress.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/z?d108:HR00163:@@@L&summ2=m&


You are correct in that it is important we all vote.

You wrote: "The administration is quietly trying to get these bills passed now, while the public's attention is on the elections, so our action on this is needed immediately."

I believe this statement is untrue and that you can not support it.

No Rebuplicans are on record as supporting these bill's.
I can only assume the required action would be to vote Rebublican.

The truth will set you free!

If the bill says that there will be a draft for all 18-26 yearolds, well, what about the older audieance. Well they get drafted at all if the bill passes.

You konw, i am gonna be 18 next year and I would totally hate to go to a war for somthing I did not belive in. Can you still go to war even if you don't fully belive in this country, because I sure dont.

Just everyone vote in November, thats all I have to say

Nobody really wants to reinstate the draft.  The bills are apparently just a way/trick to scare people and say "Wake up!  Pay attention to what's going on!  You could be next!  Vote!"

On another note I'd just like to say... GET OFF YOUR ASSES AND VOTE!  If you are one of those "I don't believe in anything either candidate has to say so why vote for either" types, then you have no clue in the ignorant brain of yours what you are actually doing to yourself.  If you stop smoking bowls for one second and research how much the president and those below him effect in your life, you will see that there is at least one major aspect in your day to day existence that is influenced by the government, and this bill is just one example.  You don't have a right to grump about anything (and I'm not saying anyone on this post is, just a general statement) unless you cast your vote.  Don't want this bill to happen?  Then vote against it.  One vote does count.  If 20,000,000 people didn't vote because they didn't think their single vote mattered then our country could be ruled by anyone!  20,000,000 STRONG IN 2004!

This is why its so important to vote.

 

Mandatory draft/military service for boys and girls (ages 18-26) starting
June 15, 2005, is something that everyone should know about. This literally
affects everyone since we all have or know children that will have to serve
if this bill passes.

There is pending legislation in the house and senate (companion bills: S89
and HR 163) which will time the program's initiation so the draft can begin
as early as spring, 2005, just after the 2004 presidential election. The
administration is quietly trying to get these bills passed now, while the
public's attention is on the elections, so our action on this is needed
immediately. Visit this site http://thomas.loc.gov/ , enter in "HR 163" and
click search to bring up the bill. It is less than two pages long.

If this bill passes, it will include all men and all women from ages 18 - 26
in a draft for military action. In addition, college will no longer be an
option for avoiding the draft; and an agreement signed with Canada will no
longer permit anyone attempting to dodge the draft to stay within it's
borders. This bill also includes the extension of military service for all
those that are currently active. If you go to the selective service web site
and read their 2004 FYI Goals you will see that the reason for this is to
increase the size of the military in case of terrorism. This is a critical
piece of legislation, this will effect our undergraduates, our children and
our grandchildren

The draft $28 million has been added to the 2004 selective service system
budget to prepare for a military draft that could start as early as June 15,
2005. Selective service must report to Bush on March 31, 2005 that the
system, which has lain dormant for
decades, is ready for activation. Please see www.sss.gov/perfplan_fy2004
html to view the Selective Service System annual performance plan, fiscal
year 2004.

The pentagon has quietly begun a public campaign to fill all 10,350 draft
board position s and 11,070 appeals board slots nationwide. Though this is
an unpopular election year topic, military experts and influential members
of congress are suggesting that if
Rumsfeld's prediction of a "long, hard slog" in Iraq and Afghanistan (and
permanent state of war on terrorism) proves accurate, the U.S. may have no
choice but to draft.
Please send this on to all the parents and teachers you know, and all the
aunts and uncles, grandparents, god-parents. And let your children know -
- it's their future, and they can be a powerful voice for change!

Please take the time to write your congressman and let them know how you
feel about this legislation.
www.house.gov
www.senate.gov

Please share this message with all of family, friends and neighbors. This is
very important*
