Senate Republicans Want to Send Your Daughters to War

It is becoming harder and harder to tell the two major political parties apart. Today in Washington, all but three Senate Republicans on the Armed Services Committee voted to require your daughters to sign up for selective service and be drafted in times of war.

Mike Lee offered an amendment to yank the requirement. The members supporting the amendment were Lee, Cruz, Rounds, Inhofe, Sessions, Wicker and Cotton. But the rest of the committee insists girls should sign up for the selective service.

it is true that there are countries that require women to join the military, but the United States has never been a country to demand our daughters be drafted to war. Even in an age where the left demands complete equality, we have tended to recognize that men and women are actually different physically and we have left the wars to men.

But Senate Republicans are preparing to change that. The party that supposedly champions families and children is siding with leftists who want to eradicate the family structure and blur the lines of men and women completely. Shame on them.
