First the government decided to put women in combat, then they let them join elite forces they don’t qualify for by lowering the standards, then they decided they should sign up for the draft.
Isn’t this a war on women?
House lawmakers took a large step toward putting female soldiers on the front lines on Wednesday, approving legislation requiring women to register for the draft.
The left wants to erase the distinctions between men and women in their Marxist war on the culture and the Republicans appear to be striking out for equal rights.
Of course, feminists did ask for this. They want full equality of the sexes.
Leftist California Democrat Rep. Jackie Spier sees it as a big step towards gender equality. “If we want equality in this country, if we want women to be treated precisely like men are treated and that they should not be discriminated against, we should be willing to support a universal conscription.”
Why don’t we send her to Iraq? Better yet, Syria.
Outside of the World Wars, I don’t know why we need a draft and the conscription that leads to it, definitely not one for women.
The AP reported that If an 18-year-old man does not register with the Selective Service he could lose his eligibility for student financial aid, job training and government jobs. Immigrant men could lose their eligibility for U.S. citizenship. According to the latest annual report, 73 percent of 18-year-olds registered on time during the 2015 fiscal year ending last Sept. 30. And the registration rate for all men aged 20-25 was 94 percent.
The Thirteenth Amendment states that Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.
The Supreme Court, not known for their ability to uphold the Constitution, upheld conscription in a decision in 1981.
The last time we drafted men to war was Vietnam.
I can see sending some women to Iraq to fight. Sandra Fluke could go as long as she has her free birth control. Obama’s daughters could go – Obama wants equality after all. Let’s send the older one to Iraq as an advisor. We won’t put her in boots, just sandals.
