NEW CAMPAIGN! New Bill. Repeal draft registration

The land of the free, home of the brave, should never need slaves to defend it Retweet

Please ask your elected reps to sponsor HR 4523 and S. 3041. This new, bipartisan bill would repeal draft registration. Better yet, the House version already has six co-sponsors…

Rep. Peter A. DeFazio [D-OR-4]

Rep. Jared Polis [D-CO-2]

Rep. Dana Rohrabacher [R-CA-48]

Rep. Jason Chaffetz [R-UT-3]

Rep. Mark DeSaulnier [D-CA-11]

Rep. Fred Upton [R-MI-6]

We’ve created a new campaign to promote this legislation. The hardwired message to Congress reads…

I want my House Rep to co-sponsor HR 4523 and my Senators to co-sponsor S. 3041. These bills would repeal draft registration.

Please copy or edit the following sample letter to send your personal instructions to your reps…

It’s good that Mike Coffman (R – Colorado) for introducing the House bill, along with the other six members of BOTH parties who have so far co-sponsored it. I’m also pleased to see a Senate bill from Rand Paul (R- Kentucky).

This legislation would save more than $26 million that is wasted each year on draft registration. It would also eliminate local civilian draft boards, civilian appeal boards, and similar local agencies of the Selective Service System.

The voluntary military has given the U.S. the most elite force in the history of the world. It flat out works, both in peace and war. There is no need for draft registration because there is no need for a draft.

If this is the land of the free and home of the brave, then it should never need nor use slaves to defend itself. Please take immediate action to sponsor or introduce this legislation.
