I turned 18 last week, and like three seconds after it was my birthday, the government had already sent me a letter or something requiring me to sign up for selective service. So, anyway, I filled out the card and sent it in.

There isn't a draft right now, is there? If so, is there any way I can get out of it if I was somehow selected? [being in college next year] I sure wouldn't want to be involved in one of the US' wars at the rate it's going right now.

It's pretty crazy that the penalty for not registering is a felony and a fine of up to $250,000 and possible prison time. So much for such a "free nation".

That's what I told my parents when they asked me about the Army. I think they thought I was joking.

Don't worry, there isn't a draft currently.

Quoted from boutitben:

I don't think it's crazy. If there was no one to defend the country, you may not have your freedoms anymore (well, what we have of them) so signing up is the least you can do.

What is Selective Service, anyways? I've seen the commercials and it always freaked me out when they said "IT'S THE LAW!!"

Anyway you can get a prorrogation for being in college, can't you?
It should be volunteer, though. There are lots of better ways to serve your country if you feel you must (that's another issue).

I registered the day I turned 18. I never really thought anything about it. I think I still have my papers in my wallet, but I'm not sure. And no, there isnt a draft right now. I doubt it will be implemented except in seriouse crisis. (I doubt an Iraq invasion would require a draft)

We have no draft but they keep the option to call on you if need be, even though I don't know when that could possibly be. I mean, who's going to invade us? Canada maybe, to practice the big invasion of the US planned for 2011.

Besides, I'm excused from any further military career... my doctor deemed me 'mentally unfit' to participate in any kind of partiotic activity. as well as handle arms.

My dad was 16 when Vietnam started, and at that age, they would let you go, but you needed parental permission (at least in Canada). My dad wanted to go, but my grandma wouldn't let him.

He actually went to the office and got the forms and tried to convince her to sign them.

He's just wierd like that.

Yes, unfortunately there are still copious amounts of idiots in Canada who wish to go off and die in unjust wars for the praise of ingrates.


I second Dani's whol "safe-house" thing. Only since I live in Ontario, I would advise everyone to come here instead, since we're better. :p

Or in other words: What happens when your idiot government stretches it's forces to thin and needs innocent people who want nothing to do with fighting to fill the gaps.

We'll be sure to set up a welcoming committee. Most likely with a lot of guns to scare off those chasing you in some wonderful unlicensed justice.
