Military Draft....for YOUR daughters!! Vote is on June 6th!

Well, those rascals on the Hill are at it again! We need to make our voices heard about this unconstitutional legislation!
Here is the information:

US Mandatory MILITARY DRAFT 18-42 quietly snuck in! As described at on February 14, 2006, Congressman Charles Rangel (NY) introduced a bill (Universal National Service Act of 2006 - HR 4752 IH) aiming at drafting everyone - men and women alike - from the ages of 18 to 42 into the military for a minimum period of 2 years. Or to quote the bill: "To provide for the common defense by requiring all persons in the United States, including women, between the ages of 18 and 42 to 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." The House is to convene on June 6 (06/06/06] to debate and possibly adopt this bill, that is, unless a vast public outcry succeeds in derailing this insanity, which you can do by writing a letter of protest to your congress person through or


  1. Outrageous! Thanks for the heads up on this, Cheri. I can't believe this nonsense is actually going to be debated. Should make for some interesting viewing on C-SPAN for those who have television.

  2. This is incredible! I had not heard about it! Thank you for the heads up! I will send this out to friends to gather support!

  3. I can't find anything that says this will be voted on today...

    Here's a better link:

    It looks like it's still in committee. If someone can find a different status, please let TNFarmgirl know so she can update this post.

    BTW, there are no co-sponsors on this bill, which might indicate a complete lack of support for it.

    If this is the type of legislation Rep. Rangel (who has been in office since 1970) is going to push, we should help his opponent in November defeat him. Can anyone find if he's opposed?
