According to the Transcript: ServiceNation Presidential Forum at Columbia University on September 11, 2008, Senators John McCain and Barack Obama were interviewed by Judy Woodruff of PBS and Rick Stengel of Time. In a nutshell, the World Socialist Web Site, Obama calls for US Military Mobilization, September 13, 2008, noted.
In remarks that clearly pointed toward the restoration of the military draft under an Obama administration, the Democratic candidate said Thursday night that his job as president would include demanding that the American people recognize an “obligation” for military service. “If we are going into war, then all of us go, not just some,” Senator Barack Obama declared.
McCain… rejected the restoration of the draft, voicing support for maintaining an all-volunteer army.
Obama said “when young people come in we work them like dogs“..referring to volunteers in his campaign. So now we have a picture of the CHANGE mantra Obama wants to implement. It seems he thinks parents would want their children to participate in this ‘draft’ type environment, and turn off TV’s and video games. This is what “Michelle Obama” was referring to when she said “he will make sure you participate in his programs.” So what do you think of being drafted into a social program to be active in your own democracy? The difference between Obama and McCain is that McCain believes in less government involvement in volunteering and Obama’s forced participation in volunteer organizations. The biggest difference is that Obama believes in a draft that includes both a civilian and military side, and McCain believes in an all volunteer military.
