Guess Who's Back...The Military Draft

I remember growing up in school learning the famous words of Patrcik Henry, "Give me liberty or give me death" A sort of mantra that summed up the feelings of a prenatal nation founded on the principals of life, liberty, and happiness. The words of this great American hero were forgotten yesterday by Senator Chuck Hagel, R-Neb said ""'Why shouldn't we ask all of our citizens to bear some responsibility and pay some price?' Hagel said, arguing that restoring the draft would force 'our citizens to understand the intensity and depth of challenges we face.' "
Senator Hagel forgot the context of English occupation that prompted Patrick Henry to say, "Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery! Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!" He, and John Kerry, and Hillary Clinton, and George W. Bush, and many more on both sides of the congress across party line are seeking to enslave and chain America's young people to forced labor in a war that is about imperialism and power.
There is only 1 way to end the "War on Terror" and it is not the enslavement of America's youth. It is to adopt a non-interventionst policy in the politics of foreign of nation.
Senator Hagel and others I implore you to fix the problem not the disease.
