    Exactly.

    but they can not force me to consider it worthy of my time or efforts.
    If they put me on a jury on a case where they are trying to imprison someone for enjoying drugs they are going to be awarded with nothing but rejection of their case.
    Sounds like you'd make a bad soldier.

    Unless it is in defense of the country's own soil, no.

    Sure it does. But we here in the United States will not have a draft unless our elected Representatives and Senators pass a draft law and the president signs it. No draft can take place unless congress first acts. But the right is there for congress to act and if it does, then this country does have the right to draft.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Of course I would. I am no solider and I have no desire to take heed of those that feel they can command me without my permission.

    I do not even know what that means or what it has to do with my post your replied to.

    If you exile me from your lands then you must rob me of my property. I don't imagine you would allow me to continue to operate my business and own a piece of your land once you forcibly removed me.

    The security and presumably the domestic tranquility of our free States, is a States' right.

    But that's your problem.
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.
