Innocent farmers health workers teachers drivers

Innocent farmers, health workers, teachers, drivers, doctors and people of all walks of life lost their lives for a reason not explained. I would ask the legislators to look at the effects of a war on American productive youth so as to shelve the thought of rolling out the draft. I would recommend such a law to be passed after exhausting all voluntary channels of joining the military. In conclusion, from the different points of view one looks at the draft, it is laced with negative connotations. The government can only use it after it has exhausted the avenues of voluntary enlistment. The current president will be hard pressed to enforce it, seeing that he has been quoted numerously thumping his chest of his shucking from the jaws of conscription. With clout, money and influence, clearly those born with a silver spoon are too important to be drafted, which is left for the poor and the dregs of the society to go to war by default and not by design.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
