Do You Believe That Women Should Be Drafted For The Military?

• The Economic Collapse Blog - Michale Snyder

Of course if a major war erupts and our politicians reinstitute a military draft, the draftees would come from those that have registered with the Selective Service System.  So if the Democrats get their way, we will be just one step away from young American women being forced to go to war.  But proponents of such a move argue that we need to do something because military recruitment has fallen to depressingly low levels, and they insist that there are many jobs that women could do away from the front lines during a major war.  So what do you think?  Do you believe that women should be drafted for the military?

A major battle over this is happening on Capitol Hill right now.

Democrats in the Senate have already added language to the annual defense spending bill that would "require women to register for the draft"

Senate Democrats have added language to the annual defense authorization bill to require women to register for the draft, prompting a backlash from Republicans and social conservatives and complicating the chances of moving the bill on the Senate floor before Election Day.
