    Should these criminals be arrested, prosecuted and imprisoned?

    As many members furious claim the "mountain man" who refused to pay $16 for a fishing license rightly was arrested and prosecuted because everyone must follow the law, this seems a relevant question - and is a public poll for those daring to ask.

    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
    I'm not really sure how I feel about the draft. If the country was being invaded, then I think a draft might be needed, but other than that, I don't think our men should be drafted to fight a bureaucratic war that's run incorrectly by politicians.

    Also, I think some of those penalties sound a bit on the harsh side.

    Registering for the Draft: It's Still the Law

    With all the spying the government and the age of computers does why do we need to still register for the draft? I think the law should be repealed. Besides I think a draft should only be legal should a country attack ours first without provocation.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

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

    In general I think the draft either needs to include women at this point, or it needs to go away. Considering how many 'bad wars' our government has thrown us in, I don't like the idea of them having the ability to call up people for their stupidity. If there is something big, we would have enough volunteers.

    HOWEVER, if I consider who the people are that probably did not register, then for the time being, make them felons so the can't vote any more, it would do our country good.

    Prosecute them, but no prison time. I can't stand for throwing even more folks into our overcrowded prisons for something draft-related in peace time.
