To produce cannon fodder.

Someone get the net before it's too late. You've read, no doubt, that Zell Miller’s gone off the beam again. His pronouncement the other day, that legal abortion is the reason that they don’t have enough excess population to spare for the multiple Bush Wars has got to count as one of the looniest things a washed up pol has said in the past year. The country has the better part of a hundred million more people now than it did when Roe vs. Wade was decided, so just on the most basic tether to reality Zell is in the ozone. It’s too late to bring him back to earth but someone might ask him why, with tens of millions more Americans, Bush is unable to sustain his wars like Johnson and Nixon were able to sustain theirs. Could the real reason be that there was a draft in effect? Even with the deferments for the children of privilege the much smaller population could keep sending people to get killed. That’s the real difference between then and now. Of course, the plebs might not be so willing to let rich kids be deferred like they were back then or we’d probably already have a draft.
What is Zell’s solution? Breeding programs? Someone, pop Zell’s balloon before he starts interfering with satellite transmissions.
