Georgia U.S. Senate Candidate Allen Buckley Condemns Expansion of Draft to Women and Johnny Isakson's Vote in Favor


Atlanta, GA, June 16, 2016 --(PR.com)-- Georgia Libertarian candidate for the United States Senate, Allen Buckley condemns the passage by the United States Senate of Senate Bill 2943, the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017. A call to Senator Johnny Isakson’s Washington, D.C. office this afternoon confirmed that Isakson voted “yes” for the Act. A press release on Isakson’s government web site “praises” the passage of the Act without mentioning the expansion of the draft to include women. Section 591 of the Act subjects women to the draft in the same manner as men.

Since the founding of the Libertarian Party in 1971 during the height of the Vietnam War, the Libertarian Party has vehemently opposed the military draft.

Buckley said: “America no longer uses the draft and does not need it. Yet, this relic of the past lingers upon our statute books without legitimate purpose. It needs to go.”

Libertarian leaning Republican Senator Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) announced on June 7, 2016, legislation to eliminate the draft entirely. Senator Paul intends to call his bill the Muhammad Ali Voluntary Service Act.

Allen Buckley supports Senator Paul’s push to eliminate the draft and will act to end it once elected to the Senate.

Mr. Buckley is an attorney/CPA. He previously was the Libertarian Party’s candidate for the U.S. Senate in 2004 and 2008. In 2008, Mr. Buckley garnered 128,002 votes in the General Election, forcing a run-off between Saxby Chambliss and Jim Martin.
