you're spot on.

They say the agency wastes millions of dollars each year preparing for the possibility of a military draft..?

since when do Dems care about spending/wasting money?

To a democrat the only wasted government programs are defense, border security, and immigration enforcement.

Ronald Reagan campaigned on ending Selective Service registration as a waste of taxpayer money (only to send Ed Meese out there a few months after the election to do a 180....one of the Gipper’s few gutless moves)

In reality this is an obsolete piece of window dressing dreamed up by Jimmy Carter so he could look tough in the depths of the Iran Hostage Crisis.

If we were really going to do a draft we would need to reconstruct a full system with draft boards, etc. Not this glorified bulk mailing list. And frankly, let’s face it...the country lacks any sort of political will to bring back the draft, and it’s hard to see under what circumstances it would find one.
