an armed U.S. citizen is equal or even more qualified to fight most kinds of wars than someone of military ranks.

A soldier carries an automatic rifle and wears armor for the purpose of following orders and attacking others. An armed and prepared U.S. citizen has a scoped rifle, scouts out locations and prepares for a defensive war against soldiers. With only a 1:10 ratio, perhaps smaller, an armed citizenry would fare better against a militant attack. I hope Hillary does not use the powers Bush has given her to wage a war on the American Citizen. I also hope that the military will refuse her authority. (Unfortunately, that might be in their "contract" to obey her.)

Can a bad tree bring forth good fruit? Involuntary servitude is bad. : ) I do understand, Cricket, that you are referring to an "equal and opposite" reaction, so-to-speak, regarding instituting a draft, so I'm mostly teasing. LOL... I would still just prefer to not have the draft.
