Rock the Vote becomes partisan 

This is disgusting. Given the use of draft reinstatement scare tactics by the Democrats, for a group to call itself non-partisan and use this advertising is worse than tone-deaf.

This is not a real draft, but a real one may happen soon if the current situation doesn't improve.

As it is, our military is stretched almost to the breaking point trying to maintain troop levels in Iraq and around the world. If Pakistan, North Korea or other nations begin to pose new military threats, how would we expect to meet the demand for troops?

Did you know that:

* It would only take two to three days for Congress and the President to authorize a
draft and set the Selective Service System's plans in motion?
* Twenty-year-olds would be the first to be inducted?
* Women are very likely to be included in the next draft?

It's up to us to educate ourselves.

It's up to us to educate our students on how they are being played. Sean at The American Mind has more examples from the Badger State.
