    enatorial opponents of the war wanted to reduce this to a one-year extension, or eliminate the draft altogether, or tie the draft renewal to a timetable for troop withdrawal from Vietnam;[58] Senator Mike Gravel of Alaska took the most forceful approach, trying to filibuster the draft renewal legislation, shut down conscription, and directly force an end to the war.[59] Senators supporting Nixon's war efforts supported the bill, even though some had qualms about ending the draft.[57] After a prolonged battle in the Senate, in September 1971 cloture was achieved over the filibuster and the draft renewal bill was approved.[60] Meanwhile, military pay was increased as an incentive to attract volunteers, and television advertising for the U.S. Army began.[52] With the end of active U.S. ground participation in Vietnam, December 1972 saw the last men conscripted, who were born in 1952[61] and who reported for duty in June 1973. On February 2, 1972, a drawing was held to determine draft priority numbers for men born in 1953, but in early 1973 it was announced that no further draft orders would be issued. In March 1973, 1974, and 1975, the Selective Service assigned draft priority numbers for all men born in 1954, 1955, and 1956, in case the draft was extended, but it never was.[62] The last drafted soldier retired from active duty in 2011.[63]
    Post-1980 draft registration[edit]

    On July 2, 1980, President Carter issued Presidential Proclamation 4771 and re-instated the requirement that young men register with the Selective Service System.[64] At that time it was required that all males, born on or after January 1, 1960, register with the Selective Service System. The Selective Service System describes its mission as "to serve the emergency manpower needs of the Military by conscripting untrained manpower, or personnel with professional health care skills, if directed by Congress and the President in a national crisis".[65] Registration forms are available either online or at any U.S. Post Office.

    I hear you but that really isn't a justifiable reason for war. We sanction Burma, Iran, North Korea Cuba and other nations too...

    Do we decide what justifies a war? What we did to Japan's oil shipping lane prior to their attack at Pearl Harbour was very much an act of war. If Iran were to blockade the Straight of Hormuz.............

    And I don't care, if they did, we would fight back as we should. Maybe if we didn't have to play daddy to the rest of world, THEY wouldn't have these issues.

    Every MALE born from 1959 was and still is required to register with the Selective Service, which can be done at the post office. Failing to do so is to be punished:

    1. 5 years in federal prison.
    2. $250,000 in fines.
    3. Lose of voting rights, gun ownership rights and all other loses associated with a felony conviction.
    4. Banned from ever holding a federal job or job with the post office.
    5. Banned from only most political offices and many other types of employment.
    6. Generally also then being unable to be bonded or licensed for many professions, including as an attorney.
    7. Banned from most law enforcement positions.

    Most states also have penalties.

    Shouldn't every male who has not or did not register as required be promptly arrested and prosecuted since everyone must follow the law and there should never be any exceptions or excuses allowed?

    Registering for the Draft: It's Still the Law
    If you think every citizen has a right to refuse every law that has, in his perspective, contradiction between the law and his conscience, you open a wide breach in the fence to everyone to do whatever they want in the name of their conscience. But if you think that every law obligating the citizen because this is what the majority agreed, you are giving absolute status to the law, whatever it will be.
    I believe civil disobedience saved for exceptional incidents, when you have serious violation of the principles of justice, therefore i think the males that didnt registered should be prosecuted, if you don’t like the law use democratic tools to change the law.

    It's called self-preservation when you have nuts like Lil Kim running around with nuclear weapons.
