Keyes wants mandatory military service
Now we know where the idea for reinstating the draft comes from -- from God, or rather His incarnation as Alan Keyes:

Keyes said the service also could be diplomatic, but such a requirement would "make it clear that citizenship is not just a lazy person's business." [ed. huh? #1]
He said exempting slave descendants from income taxes for several generations would make them more appealing to employers from a tax perspective. [ed. huh? #2]And let's not forget the other burning issue of the day:
The 54-year-old former U.N. ambassador and talk-show personality also said the death penalty must remain in force. Keyes referenced the biblical story in which arrogance about a killing by a descendant of Cain, whom God spared the death penalty, was a contributing factor to the great flood of Noah. Following the flood, God then added a command that killing another would result in death, he said. [ed. huh? #3]And there's more...
Ok, now I'm really leaving.
