    Guapo and Charles Rangel D-NY Agree - End of Times Near!

    http://www.cnn.com/2002/ALLPOLITICS/...ary/index.html

    WASHINGTON (CNN) -- A Democratic lawmaker said Sunday he will introduce a bill in the next session of Congress to make military service mandatory.

    Rep. Charles Rangel, D-New York, said such legislation could make members of Congress more reluctant to authorize military action.

    "I'm going to introduce legislation to have universal military service to let everyone have an opportunity to defend the free world against the threats coming to us," Rangel said on CNN's "Late Edition."

    "I'm talking about mandatory service."

    The Korean War veteran has accused the Bush administration and some fellow lawmakers of being too willing to go to war with Iraq.

    In October, he voted against a joint resolution authorizing military action against Iraq. It passed 296-133 in the House and 77-23 in the Senate.

    "When you talk about a war, you're talking about ground troops, you're talking about enlisted people, and they don't come from the kids and members of Congress," he said.

    "I think, if we went home and found out that there were families concerned about their kids going off to war, there would be more cautiousness and a more willingness to work with the international community than to say, 'Our way or the highway.' "

    Rangel did not provide specifics of his proposal.

    Ha, they'd get kicked out for postive drug tests..
    When Jesus said "love your enemies", he probably didn't mean kill them.

    I like that, however, do you think people would try to hide it more than they do now? It'd put a whole new perspective on being caught with a bag.. could you imagine a lot of people that say "damn the man" getting their heads shaved the next day. LOL
