Lol, or youcan go around saying you met a fairy, then they'd put you in a mental hospital and you wouldn't be sent to Iraq.

Thanks for that, I need to find that teacher so I can yell at him/her.

There's no stereotype in his post. He said that I'm the only Christian he's seen who opposes Bush. That statement is based on his own experiences; he's not making any assumptions.

someone said that Kerry wasn't continuing the war. well, he is. i heard about it from the news. however, the chance that he allows the Draft is less than Bush, much less. and i'd really hate it if the draft happened. if it does and they come after me, im seriously going to fight to get out of it. im not going to join a war i don't support (not that i'd join any war). and if i can't fight it, Canada here i come. i'll finally get to visit Toronto. woo!

My sentiments exactly Jack, Kerry wil certainly continue the War on Terror, but I don't see him invading countries unprovoked. Let's just pray that this (the draft) will never happen.

Actually the Democrats introduced the drafting legislation not the Republicans.

Chris, though what you say is true, that's not what we're talking about. The legislation you refer to only changes the way the draft is run...you'd know that if you'd read my report in this very thread. We're talking about the probability of the draft being reinstated by Bush VS Kerry.

He has, yet I can't trust his words. He's mislead us before; who's to say he's not doing it again?

the young voters don't matter too much for the elections. the majority that vote are older so that's the main age group they try to get. if they say they won't enlist the draft, less young voters will vote. if one of them chooses to have the draft, more young voters will vote for the other candidate. so it's obvious that both will promise not to enlist a draft.
the way things are going in Iraq (which is a modern day Vietnam) it will be years before it's over and a draft is likely in the future for whoever is voted president. we will run out of reserves and rotation and it's all a matter of when.

Though a draft is PROBABLE, i still don't think it is very likely... though there still is that sliver of a chance it can be reinstated. Though you have good points Jack, I still think that Bush said it to gain more support of the newer/younger voters... he firmly said if he was relected as president, he would surely not reinstate the draft... so that is my reason... it is still better to do what you can and gain as many votes as you can because of how tight this race is.

I believe that the president has not mislead us you all are so biased toward the Democrats. If you ask me John Kerry would mislead us say one thing one day and say something contradicting the next day. Why would we want a flip floper who does not stick to his positions?
