Never Enough Surprise Drafts Department

Congress is pushing through the Universal National Service Act of 2003, hoping to get it on the books before the end of the election. It establishes a draft for men and women ages 18-26. It does allow for drafting into civilian positions, but let's face it, the majority of young Americans will get put into the military and sent off to Iraq and elsewhere.

Here is the House version of the bill (HR 163); the Senate version is here.

I cannot stress how important it is to get knowledge of this bill out there.
