A people that must be compelled to fight for freedom is not free. Involuntary servitude is slavery, regardless of the need.

Even in a declared war there should be no draft. If our nation is under attack, if there is a legitimate danger to our freedom and security, there will be no lack of volunteers. Remember what happened after Sept 11, 2001? Recruiting offices were flooded with volunteers. The same will happen if there is ever a real need in the future.

Having a draft whenever there is a "declared war" just means that the Pres will be more careful about the formalities but does nothing to curb unnecessary or imperialistic wars.

An all-volunteer Army is the last assurance that we will not get dragged into unjust, unnecessary wars.
