McCain = Military Draft



This is pretty clear. Your sons and daughters will be sent off to fight should any problem arise in the world. John McCain believes only in blunt force and aggression over diplomacy and multilateralism, and either we grind the existing troops further into dust or there's a draft. There are no alternatives.

Particularly when you're running a campaign based on increasing turnout from the under-30 set, I think this would be something you'd want to mention...

...The reason that we're going to need a draft, of course, is because McCain is a reckless hothead who's default setting is more war.


If there ever was a Manchurian Candidate, it is John McCain.

My boss Harry came up with something the other day which gave me pause for thought. What did they do to McCain's mind (purposely or not) when he was a resident of the Hanoi Hilton?

Seems to me, from personal experience after having been exposed to the brutal violence of combat, that someone like McCain would do his best to assure America's young people wouldn't have to go through what he did except under the most dire circumstances. The way he cheerleads the Iraq fiasco, the way he supports Bush's policies toward Iran, and the saber-rattling he engaged in with the Russians this past week (also in support of Bush policy) tells me he has no regard for the lives of his brothers and sisters (my brothers and sisters as well) who are serving, and dying, as we speak.

McCain ain't playing with a full deck and that became evident as soon as he became the GOP nominee. His lockstep support for the Chimp and his policies, and his blatant disregard for the lives of our troops (after all he's experienced during his war), leads me to think more got rearranged between his ears than we know. This guy is as qualified as the Chimp to be CINC, maybe less.
