A Return to the Draft?

Suggestions are swirling again about a return to the draft. For those born after the 1960’s, the draft was compulsory military service for two or more years. Throughout America’s history from the Civil War to Vietnam, different rules governed who was drafted, how one could get a deferment or a buy out, or get a political commission to work his time on a staff. That was all rife for abuse, and, it was abused. 
Deferments were applied to account for medical reasons like, say flat feet and lung diseases, but a medical officer at the induction stations would make that decision. If you got your notice, you had to show up for induction and if you passed, your life changed forever.
Political deferments for celebrities, politicians and sons of politicians, like Ted Kennedy, were created while many others, stood up, begging their way into uniform. John Kennedy and his older brother did so. They weren’t famous then but their father had been US Ambassador to the UK. Hollywood stars flocked to the ranks during WW2 and did their duty as the government needed, including combat.
The draft was a numbers system, most draftees going into the army. With usable skills, one could be enrolled in a technical program for training as a mechanic, medic, or radio operator, otherwise, it was into one of the combat arms, Infantry sucking up the most. Only a few draftees ever went into the US Marine Corps or the Navy, because they filled their needed quota’s with volunteers. Many escaped the draft by school deferments and some when drafted, ran away to hide. During the Vietnam war, it was to Canada.
Many, eager to fight, volunteered to join a combat arm. That’s where the action was. For many, it wasn’t until they were covered with blood, sweat and the brains of their buddies, that they realized the awful truth about combat. It was then when a boy became a man and what he experienced would stay with him for the rest of his life. Every Memorial Day reveals more of these stories as the old Vet’s pass away.
Since 9/11, the military has had no problem filling its ranks with volunteers.These patriotic young people, with a few exceptions like Bowie Bergdahl, stay the course and remained loyal active members of their units. Many re-enlist to continue the fight and many comeback without limbs, emotionally traumatized or forever needing care. Some alas, never come back.  
America celebrates these fighters twice a year, Memorial day and Veteran’s day when the sacrifices of our military men and women are recognized and honored. How many people do you see today stand to attention when the American flag passes in review? Veterans always do. It’s honor and sacrifice.
The problem with a return of the draft today is that most of our youths are not qualified. They have been subverted by an education system, its teaching ranks filled with the anti-war radicals from the 1960’s, like the Clintons. Our schools have failed to educate our young people about Americas traditional values and why we fight, or have lied about our history making it hateful. That’s a sad but true fact. The one great pool of true Americanism, the Boy Scouts, is being perverted into a potential pool for pedophiles. 
Do we need a return to the military draft? I don’t think so! To recreate a program that expects its personal to perform, even to die on a battlefield, but turns many of them into deserters requiring efforts by the military to keep them, was never good for moral. Cowards in the ranks reveal themselves quickly and their whining can bring the moral of a whole unit down to their level of defeatism. Too, a new draft would now necessarily demand the inclusion of our daughters. Those that want to go, can do so now. Those that don’t, should stay home and tend the home fires. Today, just be thankful Hillary Clinton’s not President. That’s worth cheering about.
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em!

George G. McClellan, a California native, was a Regular Army veteran and served a post-war Korea tour. His post-army professional career covered 43 years in law enforcement, including the California Highway Patrol and the US Naval Investigative Service (NCIS). With the latter, he became a world traveler visiting and working in many countries from the Philippine Islands to the United Kingdom, Asia, the Middle-East, Bosnia, Europe, Russia, and India. He retired from the NIS at Naval Air Station, Atlanta, Ga., and has remained in the north Georgia area since 1990 as a co-owner of a Security Consulting company. He earned a Certified Protectional Professional (CPP) certification from the American Society for Industrial Security and a Fraud Examiner Certification (CFE).

He has published a historical biography on a namesake, a John Jacob Astor Fur Company member who explored a route west and back, after Lewis and Clark. Early American history, Celtic influence on America, and conservative politics remain his greatest interests. He is also a bagpiper since 1975. He and his wife, since 1965, now resides in Gilmer County, Ga.

Might the Vaccines Be Trump’s Achilles Heel for 2024

Might the Vaccines Be Trump’s Achilles Heel for 2024

While President Trump made some very controversial, later proven correct, calls early on — such as the banning of travel from China — other decisions, especially surrounding the CCP virus, are perplexing given what the astute public now knows. Trump’s blind and enduring support of Anthony Fauci, Dr. Birx, the WHO, the CDC, the FDA, the NIH, the NIAID, and many other COVID “experts” is mind-boggling…

What Happened to Men?

What Happened to Men?

The Communists need a weak class of people to go around policing the non-believers. Just like ANTIFA and BLM being their street armies, these board-shorts-wearing men are dutifully doing their bidding in big-box stores all over the country. It’s time to bring back masculinity. Let’s stop listening to the anti-men rhetoric that has been made mainstream by fringe members of the communist-left…

Covid is Political Power, Not Medicine

Covid is Political Power, Not Medicine

Effective medicines for treating Covid like Ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine are now restricted by state and county boards of health. Drug stores, under pressure from these government agencies, now often refuse to fill doctor’s prescriptions for these medicines. The government is now diagnosing and prescribing for you, not your doctor. What to Do?

The Effectiveness of Natural Immunity

The Effectiveness of Natural Immunity

The impact and disruption to families and businesses are between the vaccinated and the unvaccinated. It’s a fight the federal government has been fueling with its aggressive stance in pushing and mandating vaccines. Dr. Peter McCullough explains, “SARS-CoV-2 causes an infection in humans that results in robust, complete, and durable immunity, and is superior to vaccine immunity.” Senator Ron Johnson sent a letter to the CDC and FDA…

Gender Identity and The Equality Act

Gender Identity and The Equality Act

There are already severe conflicts between sexual orientation, gender identity, and religious liberty. If the Equality Act becomes law, it would force every American to agree with a highly controversial Democrat party-endorsed and LGBTQ-promoted political ideology on sexuality and gender identity or be prosecuted as an outlaw…

The Squalid Socialist State, Goal Achieved!

The Squalid Socialist State, Goal Achieved!

Today, it is accepted that Biden’s administration is not only inept but dangerous. While drowning in its own stupidity, Biden still insists on its success in his masterful Afghanistan withdrawal, the Covid-19 scam, and the open border over which floods of disease-infected third world illegals. This administration is dangerous to a Republic form of government; indeed, its aim is to destroy it and impose Marxism…

The Rising Tide of a World Revolutionary War

The Rising Tide of a World Revolutionary War

Yes, a war has already been declared against the United States Constitution. Now we see clearly that our freedom is near to being tossed over a cliff. Under such tyranny years ago, the American Revolution was fought and won. If we so choose once again, nothing can stop the Second American Revolution that is now brewing…

Democrats’ Human Rights Egregious Duplicity

Democrats’ Human Rights Egregious Duplicity

Biden and his clueless stooges keep falsely and shamelessly telling the world how much they care about Human Rights. The very Human Rights that Biden and the Democrats shamelessly and repeatedly remind a flabbergasted world, how Racist Americans are. If we paraphrase Churchill’s speech to describe the State of the Union under Biden’s watch, it would look like this: “Never in the field of diplomacy have so many been betrayed by so few.”

The Emotional Submission Of Football Fans

The Emotional Submission Of Football Fans

There is great controversy and social divide over the jab issue within families and friends. What sports owners and coaches don’t realize is the fact that the American population will only allow so many moves of the goalpost before they don’t participate in supporting the attendance when a front seat at home will suffice just fine…

Which Part of Your Genetic Makeup is Jekyll, and Which is Hyde?

Which Part of Your Genetic Makeup is Jekyll, and Which is Hyde?

Beal warns us the coronavirus vaccines could cause serious illness for which there is no cure, and they could cause weird mutations in the natural world which we cannot control – which perhaps we are already seeing as we move from delta, to mu to nu… and possibly soon needing to use the Klingon alphabet. There’s a lot that could go wrong, as a result of genetic changes brought about by the lab-made sequences in the vaccines…

The Great Coup of 2020 and the New American State

The Great Coup of 2020 and the New American State

Here we are, ten short years later, and the Occupy Wall Street movement has become the official platform of the Democratic Party. Their hatred of our country is no longer fringe – it is now mainstream, and it controls the White House, as well as both chambers of Congress. We are not a democracy. We are not a Democratic Republic either. We are a banana republic, with Joe Biden as our Banana in Chief…
