    PROS

    It would bring our military levels to the number that is necessary for our country's protection;

    It would assist families in making it easier to make for its offspring to have a respect for themselves and their government and society;

    It would make both sexes to be better citizens and voters in political elections; and

    Those that entered the military would have a new found respect for humanity.

    CONS

    It would allow for current and future political leaders to have a current military that is protectionist in its activity to be available at a minute's notice;

    It would cost little to force our children to a military lifestyle and a way to spy on their families for treason and other serious crimes;

    There would be no one that could make future plans for their lives that didn't include military service.

    Personally I don't feel that there is a pro to reinstating the draft. Besides powerful numbers but that is not a personal pro. The con is that many of people who mean something to someone will more than likely die.

    wake up , the rich and the powerful would never allow draft to be reinstated into law, the last thing they want is to have their children sent into battlefields to fight some illegal wars.
