Should pacifists be imprisoned? Should we bring back the Draft?

This weekend, as we honor a great American Pacifist, it seems like a good time to ask whether or not Pacifists are sufficiently patriotic to be allowed to walk the streets freely.

There are some calling for a draft, so that Pacifists and others opposed to war can be imprisoned as traitors.













So, should we bring back the draft and throw Pacifists in prison?

No need to imprison Pacifists. It's enough to just deny them an education. No student loans or grants for Pacifists!

6. Good question.

 

Google leads me to thinking that there are some conservative pundits talking about it.

edit - two bills, both sponsored by Republicans to bring back the draft.
