The United States Government should have a mandatory military draft for all its citizens
Debate Rounds (3)
During this debate I will argue that the United States Govt. should require a mandatory military "volunteer" draft for all of its citizens (stationed in and out of the country).
Round 1: Acceptance
Round 2: Opening Arguments
Round 3: Rebuttals and Closing Statement
There is no reason why, men of all ages and races should not be obliged to serve there country in times of war and in hypothetical wartime preparation. By implementing the mandatory military service draft ideally, would lead to a more available and consistent supply of military personnel , that will be capable of being deployed to a conflict zone in a moment's notice. Furthermore it may increase civic participation in the understanding the role the U.S. Plays in the global arena and produce more civic participation in our country's political affairs (especially when dealing with military budgets in congress)
Volunteer service, though personally, does produce determined and loyal soldiers;though it may be unreliable as it depends on willingness of the individual; and sense of loyalty to ones country. By creating a steady flow of supply for the military, especially the Army and Marine Corp. in recent years, from redeploying troops that are not ready for active duty.
From the results of the Israeli ideal of mandatory military service it has proven to proven its ability to assimilate hundreds of thousands of new immigrants and youth from poor development towns and development of its citizens not only mentally but also physically. No enemy foreign or even domestically would even think of threatening us if every man, woman and child in our nation knew how to fight and react to a real combat situation-thus enforcing and creating a new generation of citizens; those who are loyal and stand a fighting chance even in times when we are unprepared.
It is true that if such a draft were used we would have a more capable society in desperate times but again it comes down to our freedom to choose.
