Message to Republicans & Democrats - including @HouseGOP & @SenateGOP colleagues. I do not trust you to do anything at all, much less say you will draft my daughter to “non combat” roles. Why don’t I trust you? Let’s see - THREAD: (1/9) #DontDraftOurDaughters
Maybe it’s because you (both R&D) have amassed $30 trillion in debt and are blowing through trillions more… all while giving lip service to “balanced budgets” for decades… (2/9)
Maybe it’s because you (both R & D) have talked about securing our border while Texans suffer - our ranches, our schools, our hospitals - Fentanyl pouring into our communities… murders, rapes… dead migrants on ranches… all in the false name of compassion… (3/9)

My #thread as a female Marine Iraq vet 👇 #DontDraftOurDaughters
Drafting women, like putting them in combat units, is bad for all: combat, nat’l security, women, and men. That women who *volunteer* for military service can now join combat units doesn’t negate the following: 1/x
It’s not a rights issue. Men & women are equal under constitutional law. It’s about victory in physical warfare. The draft is for replacing massive casualties on the frontlines in a national crisis beyond the scope of our volunteer force. It’s not for support jobs. 2/x
Repealing women’s combat exemption doesn’t repeal biology. Men & women aren’t the same physically. Women don’t have an equal opportunity to survive direct combat against men. Even outstanding women aren’t interchangeable w/infantrymen. 3/x
