"It makes perfect sense"

Friday, June 23, 2006
Right Wing News (Conservative News and Views): "A lot of people just have trouble wrapping their minds around this. Conservatives are hawkish and pro-military, yet they strongly oppose a draft. On the other hand, liberals are dovish, protest military recruiting, and raged against the draft in the sixties. Now, they're the ones calling for a draft. How can that be?

Actually, it makes perfect sense.

By and large, Conservatives oppose a draft because we believe it will reduce the quality of our forces, cut into public support for using the military, and will generally make our military less effective.

On the other hand, the liberals who support a draft do so because they believe it will reduce the quality of our forces, cut into public support for using the military, and will generally make our military less effective."

Remember back in Clinton times, when every so often an article or opinion piece would appear proposing a professional mercenary army?

They would, you see, do those violent kinds of jobs that some Americans no longer wanted to do.
