“Bringing Back the Draft”

The subject of drafting men into the army isn’t very complex, it is a mere answer of either you are or you aren’t for drafting. Author, Charles B. Rangel, in his article “Bring Back the Draft,” he shares with us his view point of the draft. From the name of the title you already know that the author is for a draft. His article came from Casebook: The Draft and National Service. I will discuss in my essay Charles B. Rangel’s viewpoints and then cover my own personal view of his article. Rangel is a democrat, whose beliefs are bold and clear for bringing the draft back into the United States of America. I feel that bringing the draft back into the United States is not what the government should do. A draft only enlists the inexperienced civilian who does not know much about war, and this would only increase the death count in warfare combat. President Bush has declared a war against terrorism in Iraq. War requires our troops and soldiers to fight this war. Rangel voted against the Congressional resolution, which would give the president power to interpret the war, which Rangel believes would only lessen our chance of finding Osama bin Laden. Rangel who is a veteran from the Korean conflict believes that “if we are going to send our children to war, the governing principle must be that of shared sacrifice.” In the past history of America, Americans fought side by side in war. “That’s why I will ask Congress next week to consider and support legislation I will introduce to resume the military draft.” There will be sacrifices paid for war, but there will no longer be the typical stereotype of a soldier, “A disproportionate number of the poor and members of minority groups make up the enlisted ranks of the military, while the most privileged Americans are underrepresented or absent.” Charles B. Rangel also informs us that if the people who were for war in Iraq, knew that their children

    Bringing Sexy Back Drinking has been a pastime for centuries. According to the Narconon Drug Information Department, “It’s likely that alcohol production started when early farmers noted the fermentation that took place in fallen fruit” (Alcohol History). Part of the reason that alcohol has been around for so long is because the ingredients are very easy to come by, and wine can be made from fruits. Many people found the carbonation and taste to be pleasing. Wine and beer also became a big trading…

    My opinion about bringing back the wooly mammoth would be have to be that we shouldn't. The food chain has changed over the last period of time and it is too late to bring back an animal that would soon die because of the new ecosystem. I think the huge dangers is one that the mammoth won't last long and 2 there is no point if the food chain and animal kingdom has evolved over time. It is too late for that and far too many extinctions to bring back a long gone specie. Scientists have come up with…

    Just like the revivalism has an intention to refer back to the past, trying to bring it back, I would recall the period between the sixth century A.D. and the fourteenth. My architecture in emphasis would be the Islamic Architecture. Although it is still present, it has lost many of its originality in identity as it was influenced by modernism. Thus, I would bring it back in its fullest original identity without depriving it from the evolutionary touch of recent technology. My reason behind it would…
