Why would you like to see the draft return?  It's an egregious violation of the Constitutional provision against involuntary servitude.

Those that wish to reap the most benefits are usually those that object the most to the needs of the country. Do not lecture and call serving the country that provides your existence involuntary servitude. Those that cry the most do the least to defend her.

The draft is unnessary. It is involuntary servitude. I volunteered, and served in the US Navy.

Just because you don't see the draft as wrong, doesn't mean its right.


With a draft, everyone is in the pool, not just the unfortunates needing a job. Those born with silvers spoons might have to serve too. Any when everyone serves the politicians will look at conflicts different too.

Only thing is, during Viet Nam mostly poor kids were drafted.

Hello.

Vietnam was already rigged.
George W. did something in the national guard, sort of.
The average kid got pumped out to the middle of hell.
Then the US lost, and not only did they get called baby killer, but since the US lost, no hero welcome.
In fact, the VFW did not want them.
The draft dodgers that went to Canada were given amnesty.
And the oil embargo killed any chance of employment.
A lot turned to drinking, or hard drugs, or suicide.
Vietnam was a mess!
Here we have returning Iraq vets, same thing.
The economy failed, no WMDs, and clearly the US screwed the pooch in Iraq.
Thousands of returning vets who have a VA that is failing.
And a lot turned to drinking, or hard drugs, or suicide.

What the hell does any of  this have to do with the topic?

This was a response to the other responses.
The fact of the matter is that the more the things change, the more they will stay the same.
Society will always have its issues.
But progress will be made as well.
Whatever is next, be it this "glass" Google is pushing, a tablet or desktop, it will be easily identified by the user.
Think about it, we can take a candlestick telephone and make it work with VoIP.
Soon computers will be powerful enough that the spoken word will be the input device.
Watching a feature film on a tablet in Hi Def is now a reality.
Talking around the world is now common.
The question was, what is next, the Latest and Greatest.
This is an open ended question, to let imagination run its course.
Be it a Western Electric 151 telephone with an ATA adapter stuffed inside the bell box or something we have not thought of yet.
What is next, what do you think?

Hello.

Again, thousands went to Canada.
Thousands more went to Mexico.
NOTHING happened to them.
President Ford pardoned ALL of them.
Mexico has the law that Mexico must be directly attacked to go to war.
Canada has almost the same thing.
The US has since put up huge barriers between the US and the 2 countries.
This has worked so well that Mexico and the pretty much All of Latin America brought Cuba into their economic circle.
It was clear that the US is not preferred nation.
The US is all but the outcast by China and Russia.
China has downed, and copied, the very latest drones.
Yes, from wreck to resurrection was 6 weeks!
Mexico is running their reactors to produce ever larger stockpiles of plutonium.
But, what does this have to do with computers?
When was the last time you saw an American made computer?
