Two methods:
1. Get a siphon pump with a really long (at least 5 feet) to go in through the gas filler cap.

2. The way I did it was I disconnected the fuel line from the fuel pump assembly on the tank, attached my siphon pump hose to the fuel line and pumped it clear.

SOURCE: I want to drain my gas tank because it has 6 year gas in it.

If you remove the line just prior to the carberator or the fuel injection line then turn the key on you should get a flow of gas.

Any time you are working with open fuel and fumes it is dangerous so make sure the area you are working in is well ventilated.

SOURCE: How do you drain the fuel tank of a 98 ford f250

I'd be inclined to drop the bowl off the carburetor and make sure the needle and seat aren't stuck and that the float is opening and closing the needle.

If the old gas is bad you should remove the tank, dump the gas, and clean the inside of the tank. You may have to siphon the gas to get to the point where you can manage the tank to remove it.

I need to drain the gas how do I

You will probably have to drop the tank then remove the hose to the engine. YOu can then drain the tank change the filters and blow back through the tube from the front to get any dirt out.
replace the tank and filters and fill the tank.
YOu might also want to take the tank to an old radiator shop where they can boil it out to get the scale off the inside.

Is there a fuel drain plug for an 88 cavalier, it has sat for almost 2 years and i need to drain the gas before i fire it up

Sorry, there is not fuel drain plug. There are several ways to get the old fuel out. Using a siphon is one, or removing the fuel lines from the tank and cycling the key to let the fuel pump push it out. The last method of course is to drop the tank and empty it.

I may have put water in the gas tank what should I do? i used two bottles of water evaporator already and it still wont start. Do I need to do major work now?

you will have to try and drain it out, if there is no drain plug, remove fuel tank, water evaporator will only deal with small amounts of moisture, you will also need a new fuel filter and drain the carb(unless it is injected) and the water can corrode the injectors after time
