I always use the term congressman, never congresswoman or congressperson as an example. But I still open doors and pull out chairs for women or girls regardless of age. Just my upbringing I guess. She huh? I just considered you a friend and someone nice to talk to and get your views from. I suppose I have made that mistake quite a few time, especially over the internet.
    No offense taken. I just thought I would let you know.

    No really its not simple. I'm obviously in favour of a strong defence to protect ourselves from enemy attack. But I don't fancy politicians provoking other countries to attack us. Or telling us lies about the intentions of other countries to gain support for pre-emptive strikes. When it comes to commerce, tourism, disaster relief, consultants for infrastructure projects, world Olympics participation, joint space adventures, almost anything else you can mention, I'm all for the US being in the game. Now that's hardly isolation. That's just a dirty word that pro war hawks throw at peacemakers to diminish them.

    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.

    Yes MA'AM, three bags full. It doesn't matter, you're still fun to talk to and I would rather talk to you than some of the other nuts on this site. You my dear lady, (how is that for sucking up) have a good head on your shoulders. Even if you live in the fridgit north.

    When you were drafted you were forced to provide a service to the government and thus made their involuntary servant.

    People have to fight for their own freedom to truly appreciate it.

    But that sentiment is nowhere in your quote of me. So how'd you get it?

    Well, if they do it, and we put sanctions on them, you would be against such an action, as that would provoke them to attack us, right?

    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



    No.

    Those males who are required to register for the draft need to obey the law and register.
