Truth to Power in Washington

If you haven't heard about the rumors that Bush, if re-elected, will bring back the draft, you might want to take notice right about now. The GOP and Bush of course completely deny having any intention of doing so. But people, especially young people under the age of 25, are registering to vote in record numbers. And they don't believe the President's claims that he won't reinstate the draft.

Ohio House Representative Tim Ryan, on the House floor, gave the best explanation why people don't believe this administration anymore. It's a moving explanation of why young people are still afraid of the draft despite repeated Republican denials.

You must listen to this, because it's about time someone in Washington said what we've been thinking.
