1971 One-Man Filibuster Singlehandedly Ended Vietnam War DRAFT- Mike Gravel For President!
Mike Gravel and the Draft

In 1971, Senator Mike Gravel (D-Alaska), by waging a lone five month filibuster, singlehandedly ended the draft in The United States thereby saving thousands of lives.

As a result, aside from those who volunteered, everyone under the age of 54 has been able to stay out of harm’s way in the tragic war against Vietnam, the first war against Iraq, the war in Afghanistan, and Bush’s current war in Iraq. In addition, the children of everyone under the age of 54 have been able to stay out of harm’s way in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Mike Gravel is a veteran who enlisted in the U.S. Army and served in Germany from 1951-1954 as a Special Adjutant in the Communication and Intelligent Services and as a Special Agent in the Counter Intelligence Corps.

As a freshman Senator from Alaska, he made the judgment that the Vietnam War was a tragic mistake founded on fabrications and lies to the American people and the world. The Senator’s position was vindicated with the release and publication of the Pentagon Papers, actions made possible by Daniel Ellsberg and Senator Gravel.

Mike Gravel came to the same conclusion with regard to the invasion of Iraq by President Bush before the invasion began. The Senator concluded that Bush’s war against Iraq was a terrible misjudgment also founded on lies and deceptions to our nation and the international community.

In short, Senator Gravel’s opposition to the draft is based on his desire to insure that no American man or woman is sent to a distant land to fight unnecessary and ill-advised pre-emptive wars of choice by reckless, ignorant, warmongering leaders.

This accomplishment placed Alaska on a new economic footing. The pipeline has been responsible for 20% of the U.S. oil supply, has contributed substantially to the nation's balance of payments, and has yielded economic benefits that dramatically improved the quality of life across Alaskan society.

Yes- he speaks well and he's well aware of the real things happening in the world. We need to speak about him in public every chance we get. Suggest people to look into his platform and mention a few or many of the good things he has accomplished.
