Subject: Back Door DRAFT

Hello Lisa:

Once again, The Shrub and company, in the name of national defense are
clamoring to strip people of their rights, and this time, possibly of
their lives. The Shrubies have announced plans to recall up to 6,500
Individual Ready Reservists (IRR) to fill "critical specialties" in the military.
What most don't understand is that those in the IRR are not traditional
Reservists...they are men and women who have finished their military
obligations of 4 - 6 years and then decided that they could have a
better life by hanging up the uniform. What they don't realize is that the
military ties are not severed when they get out of the military...they
are subject to recall for 2 - 4 years or longer if the military decides
they need them. Imagine getting out of the military after having served
what you thought was a 4-year hitch only to be called back a couple years later
because the person who was crowned president by the supreme court
decides he has a woodie for Iraq. These are people who have started other careers
and lives, only to be ordered back into harms way. It is not a volunteer
force...it's a back door draft.

This country needs to be outraged at all that is being forced on them
in the false name of freedom...this is just the latest example. Where are the
countries lining up to help us win our rights back?

Keep the faith that we will regain our country soon.



Thanks for writing Roger. What a great way to win the hearts and minds of Americans.

''The administration has shown a stunning disregard for the law, resorting time and again to saying 'we are at war.  We are not under martial law in this country. The laws and the Constitution are not suspended because we are at war.''  Sen. Edward M. Kennedy (D-Mass.)
