Consider the Response

Bringing two threads together, given Ali Weldon's Meet the Press Appearance, let's imagine the reaction to some version of this speech:

Good evening my fellow Americans. I must be honest with you. We face a looming threat which we must be equipped to deal with. Iran is intent on striking at our country, and that threat must be dealt with sooner rather than later. Your country needs your service. I am imploring the young and able, and those with much needed special skills, to consider enlisting in our military to help defend this country. [insert bunch of inspiring words here]

God Bless America.

Or the alternative version in which he announces the implementation of the draft.
