MILITARY DRAFT EXPECTED TO START
JUNE 15, 2005

READ this.
There is pending legislation in the House and Senate (twin bills: S 89 and HR 163, this can be verified at http://www.house.gov) which will time the program`s initiation so the draft can begin at early as Spring 2005 -- just after the 2004 presidential election. The administration is quietly trying to get these bills passed now, while the public`s attention is on the elections, so our action on this is needed immediately.

See the following websites to view Bills: http://www.hslda.org/legislation

Congress brought twin bills, S. 89 and HR 163 forward, entitled the Universal National Service Act of 2003, "to provide for the common defense by requiring that all young persons [age 18--26] in the United States, including women, perform a period of military service or a period of civilian service in furtherance of the national defense and homeland security, and for other purposes." These active bills currently sit in the committee on armed services.

Dodging the draft will be more difficult than those from the Vietnam era. College and Canada will not be options. In December 2001, Canada and the U.S. signed a "smart border declaration," which could be used to keep would-be draft dodgers in. Signed by Canada`s minister of foreign affairs, John Manley, and U.S. Homeland Security director, Tom Ridge, the declaration involves a 30-point plan which implements, among other things, a "pre-clearance agreement" of people entering and departing each country. Reforms aimed at making the draft more equitable along gender and class lines also eliminates higher education as a shelter.

Underclassmen would only be able to postpone service until the end of their current semester. Seniors would have until the end of the academic year.

This plan, among other things, eliminates higher education as a shelter and includes women in the draft.

Actions, actions, actions:

Please send this on to all the parents and teachers you know, and all the aunts and uncles, grandparents, godparents.... And let your children know - it`s their future, and they can be a powerful voice for change! Please also contact your representatives to ask them why they aren`t telling their constituents about these bills -- and contact newspapers and other media outlets to ask them why they`re not covering this important story.

The draft $28 million has been added to the 2004 selective service system (sss) budget to prepare for a military draft that could start as early as June 15, 2005. Selective Service must report to Bush on March 31, 2005 that the system, which has lain dormant for decades, is ready for activation.

Please see website:

http://www.sss.gov/perfplan_fy2004.html to view the sss annual performance plan - fiscal year 2004.

The pentagon has quietly begun a public campaign to fill all 10,350 draft board positions and 11,070 appeals board slots nationwide. Though this is an unpopular election year topic, military experts and influential members of congress are suggesting that if Rumsfeld`s prediction of a "long, hard slog" in Iraq and Afghanistan [and a permanent state of war on "terrorism"] proves accurate, the U.S. may have no choice but to draft.

WHAT TO DO:

- Tell all your friends!!!!!

Contact your Senators & Reps and tell them to oppose these bills!!!

yeah probably won't pass..but i'm sure hes trying hard to get it. when i was in the military numbers where low and there was a huge complaint on not enough recruits...and i'm sure it hasn't gotten any better.
and when you got millions of your bank account depending on the war...i'm sure bush ir more than motivated to find a way to sneak it by.

The United States military is an all volunteer, professional force. The military itself does not want the draft. It doesn't want people who don't want to be there. It takes to long and too much money to properly train a soldier or sailor to put up with the poor retention rate a draft would create. A couple of fringe senators make some noise about this and it gets blown way out of porportion. No reasonable elected official will vote to reinstate the draft and expect to keep his or her job. There will be no draft.
