Conversations on my office lately have been looking seriously at how the Army can save money. Getting smaller is not an option. buying less stuff is not an option. What is an option?
A full Colonel in my office, a man who has sworn to support and defend the Constitution of the USA, thinks we should reinstitute the draft as a way to save money. The thought never occurs to him that a draft is the same thing as enslaving young men for a period of service against their will and is completely against multiple parts of the Constitution and that Congress has no power to do that (just because they have done it before).
Good thing we have those oaths of office.
It has been my observation that only a tiny fraction of the serving officers in the US Army have a clue about the concept that the Constitution exists to limit the powers of government.
