    Re: Should Women have to sign up for Selective Services.

    I have not read this entire thread, and I'm sure I'll be called sexist or old fashioned but I say no. Guess I'm old fashioned. I didn't want to go to college after high school. I wanted to get married and have kids. There's no way I could leave my kids!

If you fail to sign up you can face jail time, be fined, and is denied aid for college.
    You forgot to add "move to Canada."

    I'm sure they will right after they sign up for Obamacare.

    No, that's just the US government management system. The same government that's screwed up medicare, social security benefits, pretty much everything they are involved with. The same government many here trust with managing your health care.

    Equal rights means equal rights. That should include Selective Service and Divorce Courts. It's an all on none deal in my opinion.

    Not in today's society. If women want to be equal then they should be treated equal by the head of the US government that stresses marriage equality, LGBT equality, income equality, and gender equality. Equality comes with responsibilities as well as entitlements.

    The best argument against the draft is that the majority of the population is either too stupid, too immature, or too selfish to handle military life, and we shouldn't waste our time getting our obese and undisciplined population into fighting shape when, in today's economy, the amount of people trying to get in meets all demands.

    b) its contrary to a free society
    Small bands of mercenaries, er, spec ops enforcing Americas will around the world is contrary to a free society.

    Though I suppose the Israelis and their despotic regime should be a lesson for us all...

    c) if there is a draft-cannon fodder should be based on employability -oh you will claim that is unfair. well once you start drafting people for the "good of society" fairness is no longer applicable anyway, you might as well not waste the smart people
    So African Americans and Hispanics will be far over represented on the frontline?

    Guess it wouldn't be the US Military if it were any other way!

    Ah yes, the old "sacrifice military readiness to make a political point" philosophy.
