    Default Opinions on the US Military Draft?


    *Ads Disappear After 100 Posts*
    I'm against it. I'm against war. I'm also against the military in general. I was taught to question authority.

    The U.S. Military and its soldiers have earned only contempt from me. I, too, am against war and militaries.

    On your other note, authority should always be questioned.

    Then what's w/ the username?
    19/Male/Bisexual

    Bisexual/gay guys are not here to help supposedly "straight" guys get off!! The rampant homophobia in this country and the world sickens me. When will you people realize being bi/gay is NOT a choice?

    Ironic. It's a long story. Basically, I used to be different than I am now.

    No. I don't see any real bashing of particular people. Having hatred for the military or military servicepersons is not bashing. Sorry.

    I'm allowing this.

    I have mixed feelings.

    I believe that a military is not an inherently bad organization but that it must exist because there is a need for it to exist.

    I feel bad for many of the people in the service because they are only there because they had nowhere else to go. It is a fact that military recruiters often target the bottom 10% of high school students.

    I cannot approve of any organization, government or private, that openly discriminates about who can be a member. The US Supreme Court has ruled that the military may discriminate but that doesn't make it right any more than it did for Dredd Scott.

    I do not believe that a draft is ever the right answer. My dad promised me ages ago that if the draft was ever instituted he would pay for my airfare out of the US.
    It's been fun.

    (EDIT lol read the topic wrong.)

    I'm not American, but I disagree with military drafts in any country.

    I don't believe in forcing any man, woman or child to serve in the military. An all-volunteer military is the best way to go, seeing as you got a population that 100% wants to be there.

    In the event of a serious war, most people willingly join the military anyway.

    I believe that our country needs a strong military to keep itself safe. I'm also a pacifist and I believe that war should be used only as a last resort; mainly, to fight people who would otherwise attack us. The War in Iraq has been a source of death and destruction, but it hasn't done anything good. If there were a draft again and I were drafted, I'd try to get out of it for religious reasons or ethical reasons, or else I'd move. We're in a sticky situation, now, as our soldiers--many of whom signed up after 9/11 to protect our country--have been overseas for five or six tours of duty. That's a ridiculous amount and it takes a greater toll on them each time. A draft would probably help remedy that situation, but most other people don't want to be involved in this mess. Thankfully, a draft would be politically unpopular, so I see it as unlikely to happen in the near future.

    First off we dont have a draft and second of all if we have a poorly kept army just because we dont want our troops eyeing there fellow soldier or worse than i dont want a well kept army. And on another note i would apreciate it if you not insult our troops because they are brave men and women who serve there country honorably.

    I support the military. They are the people risking their lives, just like cops and fire fighters. They all have my respect. They are out doing a job, like everyone else.

    I'm not sure how I feel about the military. However, if a military draft were to be enacted, I would get out of this country in the blink of an eye.
