This morning, a local conservative radio host posted a Facebook question.uncle-sam-570x798jpg-496fa01099168b4b

“Should we bring back the draft?”

I was amazed at the number of people who voiced support for government action that amounts to slavery. They apparently believe the “state” owns me and has an inherent right to commandeer my labor for its purposes without my consent.

Keep in mind that this host’s audience tilts overwhelmingly “conservative.”

Draft supporters generally argue I “owe” society my service, and my refusal to accept this notion makes me “un-American.”

Ironically, these same people emphatically reject the notion that the government can exercise its authority to force them to buy health insurance. Don’t they “owe” society their participation in a plan to help all of their fellow citizens get affordable healthcare?

Welcome to the collective.
