Left Twists McCain’s Words Around Again

McCain's program for mandatory service wouldn't be unlike Americorps. Althout participants would be armed and sent to foreign hot spots.

Yesterday at a Town Hall in New Mexico John McCain was taking questions when a woman said to him, “If we don’t reenact the draft, I don’t think we will have anybody to chase bin Laden through the gates of Hell.”  McCain responded by tell her, “Ma’am let me say that I don’t disagree with anything you’ve said.”

Naturally, the left jumped all over that saying that McCain wants to start a draft.  I have no idea how they even came up with such a preposterous notion from what was said.  What John McCain meant is that he was in favor of a youth service plan.  What John McCain would like is a national service program not unlike Americorps, but with guns.  Students would gain a world of useful experiences following college by spending a few years helping in places like Russia, Syria, Iran, or North Korea.  They would meet with locals and be able to use that time to help decide what their future would be like.  This is not the same as a draft by a long shot.

Sure the left will twist this around to say that McCain wants a draft.  Afterall he’s been talking about using military force in 7 different countries around the world over the next 4 years, but there is a big difference between mandatory armed service to your country and a draft.

  1. that’s the sad thing about american politics.
    you can’t say anything without being critcized or attacked.

    but the truth is, both sides do it.
    you just need to recognize that american politics can get very dirty and ridiculous at times.
