Even though I am beyond drafting years, I don't like this at all for these reasons: What if you lawmakers are wrong? What if the lawmakers that come after you do not have the 'altruistic' intent that you are now proclaiming? What if those in power, as they have always managed before, find ways and means to circumvent and bypass the law and ending up, sticking it to the rest of us average Americans to carry the heaviest burden in defending this country? Why do we all of a sudden assume, that the system will now be fair in keeping everyone accountable, and exactly just in discerning who from each family needs to serve and when. Why do we have this leap of faith now that all will be well: because we are in good hands? If actions determine deeds, then this action and its consequences should strictly hold those who conceive it, wrote it and vote for it wholly responsible, every single one of them. For, if you are wrong it will be disastrous, and precious lives will be lost, and it will be murder and it will be on your head! Count on it.
