Yes, this is a bonus post today, but I thought it necessary to pass it on to those who have not seen it. The House of Representatives have approved the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), and the GOP gleefully inserted a provision demanding females will now be eligible for the draft.
The House of Representatives passed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) Thursday night after a lengthy amendment debate that took up most of the day. This annual bill is considered “must pass” legislation as it reauthorizes and funds the military.
In an unbelievable move, both House and Senate Republicans, many of whom view themselves as “defense hawks,” voted to add far-left language to the bill that would draft our young daughters in a time of national emergency. In the House, 135 Republicans voted last night to do just that.
Someone convince me why I would ever vote for the GOP again.
It remains to be seen how many Senate Republicans have the spine to oppose this disgrace on the floor, but the outlook thus far does not look promising. Only five SASC Republicans opposed drafting our daughters during the committee mark-up. Those five were Sens. Tom Cotton, James Inhofe, Roger Wicker, Mike Rounds, and Josh Hawley.
The five senators are the ones I expected to fight this ridiculous decision. Not that it would matter, because I imagine most of the other GOP senators will not oppose “their good friends across the aisle.” Oh, and while we’re at it, check out all the military goodies the GOP House voted for.
We need a national divorce, and we need to start ditching politicians who do not support our core values and beliefs. There is very little difference between the DNC and the GOP.
