Historical Analysis of the Military Draft Policy - Historical Analysis of the Military Draft Policy The Constitution adopted in 1789 gave Congress the "power to raise and support armies," but it neither mentioned nor prohibited conscription. The Framers left that issue to the future, although most of them believed that the United States like Britain would enlist its men rather than conscript them, and would pay for its armies through the power to tax. Not until World War I did the United States rely primarily upon conscription. The Selective Service Act of 1917 was adopted in large part because a civilian-led "preparedness" movement had persuaded many Americans that a selective national draft was the most equitable and efficient way for an industrial society to raise a wartime army....   [tags: Military Army Drafting History Essays]

Civil-Military Relationship in The American Military Coup of 2012 - ... As we see in the past, Congress has an important role to oversee the actions of the other branches of government. When Congress does not exercise this responsibility, our government loses a very important check on power. The extra responsibilities the military took on dangerously affected the readiness of the military due to lack of training. However, people did not see this as an issue in a time of peace. People only had faith in the military to take care of these aspects of their lives.
