I have railed for some time against the maniacal idea of the military draft being extended to include women. Make no mistake, I oppose the draft in all forms; and think it is just as reprehensible to force men to serve and die for a cause they may or may not believe in as well. The military should be an all-volunteer army. And if it’s not, then the entire idea of liberty is nothing more than an elaborate hoax foisted on the masses. The only TRUE liberty belongs to those who cannot be drafted.
Because when you live in a country that believes it has the right to take your sons, brothers, and fathers BY FORCE to “serve” then you don’t really live in a free country. Rather, you live in a country of freedom for the elites and slavery for the peons. Now, the United States wants to potentially expand the nationally sanctioned kidnappings to include your daughters, sisters, and mothers. The asinine concept of forced military service has been elevated to the level of “infinitely asinine.” And the most frustrating part of it all is that the elected officials in Washington are either too ignorant, or too corrupt to care.
Take for example, my Senator Bill Cassidy; the smiley outspoken “conservative” who voted in favor of the military bill that included drafting girls. I wrote to Sen. Cassidy and expressed my strong opposition to the legislation. He responded to me by saying that the draft gives women “equal opportunity” to serve in the armed forces. I am dumbfounded by the fact that 85 U.S. Senators continue to describe the draft as an “opportunity.” Who, in their right mind, would see a legalized, government kidnapping as an “opportunity.”
