IF ONLY The GOP(and Republican Voters) would wake up and smell the Coffee, the United States Does Not have the Population to field an All Male Air Force and an All Male Army and an All Male Marine Corps and an All Male Navy and an All Male Coast Guard--Most Especially An All Heterosexual Male Military, Unless there is a draft of 100% of the Male High School Graduates, which even then would have complications and would beg the question--how many of these Conservatives who do not support women/ Gays in the Military will then turn around and complain about their sons being drafted??
