Oh yeah, the "serious discussions" over the military draft are surfacing ... of
course with most pretending it is a new idea and not the same ole
Military Draft Bill
I like this part best ...
Specifically, the bill mandates a national service obligation for every U.S. citizen and permanent resident, aged 18-26. To that end, the legislation authorizes the President to establish both the number of people to be selected for military service and the means of selection. Additionally, the measure requires those not selected specifically for military service to perform their national service obligation in a civilian capacity for at least two years. Under the bill, deferments for education will be permitted only through high school graduation.
