Update on that mandatory draft legislation

According to Glen Anderson, the mandatory draft House legislation we mentioned in a previous post ("Want to see something really scary?") is sponsored by Charles Rangel, an African-American Democratic congressman who is considered generally peaceful and progressive. Says Anderson: "Rangel’s concern is that the military is too black and too poor. He wants middle-class and wealthy whites to share the burden. For these political reasons, we can’t vote our way out of this problem. Our best way to avoid a draft is to demand a peaceful foreign policy so we’ll need fewer troops." So does that mean we should vote for Nader?
