    I don't look at like that. I look at it as doing my part for my country for the privilege of living here. In the best country in the world IMO.
    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.

    That would make sense if you signed up on your own free will, but you were drafted.

    How many Americans that are required to register for the selective service refuse to do so? I don't know but I would imagine its quite small. If it is, then the question is basically a non-issue. As to the validity of having a draft or not, its a representative democracy, if you don't believe that Americans should be required to register for selective service, then convince enough of your peers to petition those that represent you and get the law changed. If you think its unconstitutional, then petition the federal courts.

    Until someone can provide some numbers, it seems the poll is just a red herring for anarchists.

    It doesn't matter. My generation was expected to serve. Every able bodied male knew they owed a 2 year obligation. We viewed it as a way to give something back to this great country of ours. You guys leave me scratching my head. I find it very hard to understand your point of view that serving in your countries military is like slavery. JFK said it all when he said, "Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country." My generation, the kids who grew up in the 50's and those generation previous still trusted their government to do the right thing. Think about the leaders we had around the time I grew up or just before, FDR, Truman, Eisenhower, JFK. 4 top ten presidents and they came back to back to back.

    We were proud to be Americans and we knew America stood for freedom against the totalitarian countries of the world. We took that responsibility seriously about keeping her free and if we gave 2 years or more of our life to our country, that was a small price to pay.

    As was I. Governments have, is, and will engage in wars in the interests of governments only...not in the interest of citizens that they claim to serve.

    I pretty much agree with X. If our nation is attacked on our own soil...with such force that our current military isn't capable of defending our nation, then I believe a draft might be necessary. Otherwise...no.

    I already said I had no intention to do so. If my mother didn't sign me up I would of most likely been punished by the state and spend five years in jail. In the end though, just because you have power to take away someones freedom and property doesn't mean your stance is right.

    What does that have to do with your accusation that I'm perfectly content with countries slaughtering their own citizens? Will you focus before you post please.

    There is a long series of problems that are very common with people that are drafted into service all because they have no desire to take part in it. This was a common place during the Vietnam war. There is very little doubt that many of your peers did not agree with you and considered it an action that they were not willingness to take part in.
