That is, if you vote. A split in the democratic party is obvious: Kerry's plan is generally similar to Bush's plan with respect to the war -- "sovereignty" will be turned over to The Entity designed by a UN apatchik. Last week, protestors at a Kerry rally unfurled an "out of Iraq now" banner, to consternated comments by the candidate. Howard Dean raised millions with straight talk and anti-war straight talk. The stop-loss orders for service personel (appx 2500 as of 3/04) act as a de-facto draft, as does the pathetic abuse of National Guardsmen & women who signed up to grease the wheels into college. Kerry has pledged a civil service mandate for citizens but not a draft per se, but his rhetoric (damn rhetoric) sounds tragically like the same Johnson hogwash of the 70's: Well, will you vote for the candidate who will propose a TRUE timetable for withdrawing troops from Iraq?
