Since Donald Trump all but put this country on a war footing, when will young men be required to register for a return to a Military Draft?

Tks,

Retired Military

The sooner the better. With absolutely no exceptions other than professionally certified and verified health reasons. Get the sons and daughters of those seat warming Congress people in uniform. Hell, put those seat warmers in uniform.

Donald Trump, George W Bush, Newt Gingrich, ALL refused to stand up and fight for their country, quite prepared to happily let other Americans fight and die their battles.

Actually, Zap, W did "serve" in the Air Force National Guard in the "Champaign Squadron". Assignment to the Champaign Squadron was restricted to the sons of VIPs and the duty there was less stressful than at a YMCA summer camp. Even so, W got dropped from flying status because he refused to submit to a drug test.

We already have a draft of sorts. It is called the economy. For a lot of young men the only job opportunities are selling drugs and joining the military. And when a felon in prison enlists he gets a pardon for his most recent crime rather than a cash enlistment bonus. What is not to like?

There were waiting lists for several years to get into the national guard during the vietnam war. George W Bush got around those waiting lists with his Fathers help.

Cheney is another chickenhawk that had 5 deferments.

Trump Doesn't Understand What Healthcare Is

Donald Trump has the power to force anywhere from 22 to 32 million American men, women, and children to lose their health insurance.

There's just one problem: he doesn't seem to understand what health insurance actually is.
