    Re: Should these criminals be arrested, prosecuted and imprisoned?

    As I said before I refused to register for the draft and I was willing to accept any punishment the government had for me. My reason for this was very simple. I refuse to be the servant of another human being or group of human beings and I refuse to comply to a law making me sign up for it. That didn't matter in the end though since my mother signed me up after she realized I was not going to back down on my stance.

    And it's worked quite nicely every time the US has wanted to throw its hat in the ring. Sometimes they poke the country in the eye that they want to be at war with and then respond with shock and horror when they hit us back, sometimes they just tell us big whoppers about the country they wish to attack, but one things certain, we never have a shortage of Neanderthals in America ready to get behind the next war, raise they're flags and pull their yellow ribbons out of the drawer.

    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.

    I think pretty that most Americans are perfectly happy to let less than 1% of the population defend America and that they wouldn't lift a hand to defend her if she was invaded and conquered.
    If the people won't defend the country voluntarily then clearly the country doesn't deserve the benefits of their protection.

    Could be, but what I said was what the history books say.

    It is a simple question… if you believe that any action against another nation, no matter what that nation does, is a provocation of that nation which allows them to attack, then are you or are you not an isolationist?

    Okay, and by the same standard, the people do not deserve to reap the benefits and the rewards of the country.

    Depends on if they consent to it or not. Consenting to the benefits of a country doesn't mean you consent to defend it. The only thing that consenting to the benefits of a country applies to is the benefits.

    So you think one can reap all the benefits and rewards a country has to offer without doing or giving anything in return?

    Of course. When you provide someone a service they never asked for they do not owe you payment in exchange for it. That is neither here nor there though since all people have the right to their labor and you can not force them into service for you. The draft is very much in violation of that right. It is, by definition, slavery.
