Cruz Opposes Drafting Our Daughters. He Should Not Have To.

By  |  February 8, 2016, 03:30pm  |  @ewerickson

It was an insane moment during the Republican debate on Saturday night. Most of the candidates on the stage, including Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush, and Chris Christie took the position that our daughters should be required to sign up for the military draft.

What the hell sort of country are we becoming? That is an insane position and they should all walk it back.

Ted Cruz has come out against drafting our daughters and if the other candidates are smart, they will begin the walk back.

“It was striking that three different people on that stage came out in support of drafting women into combat in the military,” Cruz said of his primary rivals at Saturday night’s GOP debate.

“I have to admit, as I was sitting there listening to that conversation, my reaction was: Are you guys nuts?” he added during a speech in New Hampshire.

Yes, it is nuts. Ted Cruz should not have to come out in opposition to drafting our daughters. It should not be an issue and the other candidates should not support it.
