Conyers Joins Rangel in Call for Draft

Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) has joined Rep. Charles Rangel (D-NY) in calling for a national draft. Their reason: "children of the rich should serve alongside less privileged Americans in the war on terrorism."

Rangel and Conyers said they will "ask the House to consider legislation to reinstitute the draft, perhaps as early as next week, at the start of the 108th Congress. The United States has not drafted troops since 1973."

We said our piece on this yesterday and we stand behind it-- in strong opposition to Conyers and Rangel.
