Democrats Hit Bottom, Dig

(Via Powerline) This really is the most despicable stunt imaginable. A group supporting John Kerry is sending out this email in an attempt to scare young voters into believing they will be drafted if the President is re-elected:

YOU HAVE BEEN DRAFTED!

This is not a real draft, but a real one may happen soon if the current situation doesn't improve.

As it is, our military is stretched almost to the breaking point trying to maintain troop levels in Iraq and around the world. If Pakistan, North Korea or other nations begin to pose new military threats, how would we expect to meet the demand for troops?

Did you know that:

* It would only take two to three days for Congress and the President to authorize a draft and set the Selective Service System's plans in motion?

* Twenty-year-olds would be the first to be inducted?

* Women are very likely to be included in the next draft?

It's up to us to educate ourselves. In the event of a draft, we won't have much time to form an opinion. And with just 34 days left until the election and only a few days left before many state registration deadlines, we need to take a stand now by registering to vote:

This is disgusting demogoguery of the highest order, and it should come as no surprise considering Teresa Heinz Kerry, John Kerry, and John Edwards have all refered to teh draft in recent weeks. As Hindrocket at Powerline stated, there are very serios issues that need to be discussed in this election, bu the Democrats are incapable of anything more than this type of rhetoric. The faster this election is over and the nation can move past the Democrats demogoguery.
