And he wants to reinstate the draft

Can you believe this guy?  

If a young fellow has an option of having a decent career or joining the Army to fight in Iraq, you can bet your life that he would not be in Iraq. Those who have the least opportunities at this age find themselves in the military, as I did when I was 18 years old... If there's anyone who believes that these youngsters want to fight, as the Pentagon and some generals have said, you can just forget about it. No young, bright individual wants to fight just because of a bonus and just because of educational benefits. And most all of them come from communities of very, very high unemployment.
-- Congressman Charles Rangel (D-NY), November 26, 2006
 
He wants to reinstate the draft so that young people of all economic backgrounds serve. The ultimate goal is to stop the war. This would happen if some rich kids get killed and their parents put money into stopping the war, or so he hopes. He reveals his true thoughts on the military like John Kerry did.
