    I vote no because no one should have to.

    I chose "other" because neither men or women should be forced into conscription.

    The military empowers states to fight each other for power and influence. It is truly rare that a war isn't started and fought because one or more parties involved want power over the others. The people that make up the military ranks are used more often than not to expand the interests of government, not of the people. It's the reason that no one should support the military.

    Since just about nobody does anyway it seems just a symbolic question.

If you fail to sign up you can face jail time, be fined, and is denied aid for college.
    What the what? Seriously?

    Only the father would be required in this case.

    I remember this like yesterday. It's a bummer they bumped Andy Griffith off the schedule that night. Young men and their families all across America were sitting on the edge of their chairs biting their nails.

    I basically wouldn't say "zero," chances, myself as I have actually witnessed with my own eyes. I wouldn't get too comfortable if I were you.

    I served honorably. Glad I did. I recommend it for all young men and women. But if Uncles Sam comes knocking on my door telling my grand daughter or niece that, "I WANT YOU!," he's gonna find out he just made a new enemy, Can you imagine having to ship your 18 year old daughter off to a place like Viet Nam? Domestic enemies are something we all should avoid at all costs. They will NOT come for our women. If our women WANT to go, that's a different matter entirely. I kinda like the Amazon unit idea.

    Yes they should. While that doesn't mean that they may be placed in the same roles that should not remove the obligation.
