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)

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.
Wisely spoken, as usual.

Turn them into a domestic police force.
FWIW, I think the draft is antithetical to freedom.
