Refuting the MoveOn Ad ...

Posted: Jun 17, 2008 4:46 PM

Some of you have emailed me some good points about the MoveOn ad ...

Following are some points that seem to refute the logic behind the ad:

1.  We have a volunteer army -- not a draft.

2.  As such, her son would have the right to volunteer to serve, only after he’s 18 (I also disagree with drafting babies into service).

3.  MoveOn just admitted on MSNBC that McCain’s "100 years" remarks were made with the caveat that there were no casualties (like serving today in Korea.)

4.  Why would she object to her son serving in a place like Korea – if he wants to? (Don't impose your political views on an 18-year-old.  Cut the apron strings, mom.)
