06-Nov-06 -

If, tomorrow night (see Alan Freeman's story in the Globe three weeks ago), the Democrats win 15 or more Republican-held seats in the 435 seat House of Representatives (they could win 36 Republican seats) - the Democrats will control the House of Representatives. And that is quite likely. And, if the Democrats win over six seats in the powerful U.S. Senate - seats in Ohio, Pennsylvania and even Tennessee could be won - the Democrats will control the Senate. That is not so likely. If the Democrats seize control of both houses of the U.S. Congress, Bush will become a "lame-duck" president and we hope the Bush family, the worst disaster that has ever afflicted the United States, will take a permanent place with Benedict Arnold, Aaron Burr, Richard Nixon, Warren G. Harding and Pearl Harbor in the rogues gallery of American mythology.

But what if the Republicans retain the Senate and retain the House? What if the Republicans win both houses and gain seats in one or both houses - how will the Bush Junior administration act?. Emboldened by their victory, empowered by their successful campaign to stay the course. To stay the course in Iraq and Afghanistan, not to mention to face Iran and Kim Jong-Il ... Rumsfeld, Cheney, the neocons, the generals need (or so they think - see Saturday's Globe to the contrary) more soldiers. Where can they find them? They've beaten every bush occupied by every loser in Bushite America, hillbillies, desperate blacks, Mexican wetbacks; scrounged through every Indian reserve in Canada; four-flushed every poor devil who's got involved in their reserve army - come up short - need more manpower. The logical answer is to "draft" ordinary American citizens. The Vietnam War drove "the Draft" into exile in 1973. In times of real danger American congresses have brought in the Draft. In 1940, for example, though Franklin Roosevelt did not have the guts to force through a Selective Service Act, a World War One veteran, Grenville Clark, lobbied the Act through against great opposition. Probably, the Bush Dynasty - they want to install Jeb Bush in the White house in 2008 - wouldn't have the guts to try. Shouldn't someone get an undertaking from the Bushites, before the mid-term elections, not to bring in the draft?
