I'm gonna say NO! But, what should happen is that if our services are needed to go into and defend another country then they should be funding our military.

Of course not, but it wouldn't be a bad idea to have mandatory military service for those illegals who want citizenship, and are of recruitment age of course.

Either serve in our military or go home.

It also wouldn't be a bad idea to have mandatory military service for rich kids. Then politicians wouldn't be so quick to start wars that simply line the pockets of the rich.

Sounds great, at first! But think about it, are not military units armed Gangs with licenses to break things and kill people? I would not want to see say, a platoon of Mexicans defending me. The answer to illegal immigration is in getting them to stay home, not offering incentives to leave. Mexico is a socialist rathole and especially hard on those at the bottom.

Sure draft all men from 16 to 40 so the population lessens and we can stop paying that stinking school tax.

If the U.S. had a draft, the Iraq War would have never happened and troops would have been withdrawn from Afghanistan years ago. But going forward it's probably a moot issue considering the pending budget cuts to defense and the rise of drone warfare.

Well, the Vietnam war happened when there was a draft, so I don't think that would have necessarily been the case. You could argue that the Vietnam war venture and the scars it left ended support of the draft.

Today we have an all-volunteer military and reserve forces and I think that's fine except for real threats to our national security and then compulsory service, among all economic groups, could be considered. That being said, I don't think it's right for our National Guard and Coast Guard to be sent to places far from our shores. That's certainly not what they signed up for.

That will just mean the men left behind can impregnate more lonely women.

It's especially wrong when you consider that the Natl. Guard was formed from the old state militias.
My president was elected by dead people!

Well Terry, there are many folks that believe people of your 'persuasion' aren't worth being defended.

So pot, meet kettle.

Tell me something I don't know! But they don't know what I'm worth.
They just assume it's a problem of morals or character. they can't get it through their heads it's a medical problem.

So are you assuming the same thing about them. Because they are hear illegally, does not mean they are looking to set up shop as crack dealers. I don't like that they are here illegally, but more often than not they are willing to embrace opportunities. Something that a lot of groups just don't do.......even the ones who have been here for 400 years.

To take this to it's conclusion, democrats will rue the day that they asked for Mexican illegals to be naturalized....once the tax credits pass and the dems are onto their next group of victims to advocate, the hard working, mainly Catholic voting block will be republicans faster than you can say Obama.

So you think hard working, mainly Catholic life-long Democrats will suddenly start voting Republican because hard working, mainly Catholic immigrants start taking menial jobs that no current citizen wants?

Look, This used to be a wonderful country WITHOUT THEM! I am a stranger in my own country, there's always something foreign in my face! And, yes, my family does go back to 1634. That is a moot point, only useful for having a long standing familial memory of history. For instance, I had more relatives in the Revolutionary War than most folks had in WWII. The civil war? On both sides, we gave up counting. So, yeah, you could say that I had a stake in America. I don't want to see it end up like Rome, a failing polyglot mixture of every race, the good and the bad.

That's probably the same thing people were saying from 1880 to 1925 when all the immigrants came over from Europe. Those people took menial jobs for the hope of a better life. Now their offspring are the ones complaining about the new influx of immigrants who are mainly just looking for a better life.

This country was never perfect and never will be, but diversity is one of the things that make it so great.
