As God is my witness, I will not allow my two sons (ages 15 and 17) to register for the selective service when they turn 18. No way in hell I'm going to allow this incompetent, inept, corrupt government of ours to send them off to war to pay for THEIR mistakes.

There was a time when the average right leaning American would have blasted you for saying such a thing, but not today. When the government has become as lawless and treasonous as it is now, yours is the only correct position a patriot can take.

My two boys are 14 and 16. My eldest will be eligible to register for selective service before Zero's term is up. He may just have to fly under the radar until after the 2016 election to register. We'll see.

I know, if this was 1983, man, we'd be read the Riot Act. However, back then, I did ask as a thought experiment, "what if the US became the USSR and the USSR became the US?" I added, "what if we ever became the Evil Empire?" Well, Russia is not like we were although they made progress, but in many ways they are freer than we are now. I never thought I'd be saying the Russians are right and we are wrong. I feel like I've landed on Bizarro World.

Well, I never heard of anyone prosecuted under the law. I know I registered a month late in 1984 when I turned 18, no biggie there. I know if they don't they will not be eligible for federal student loans, federal job training and not be able to hold a federal job. I think the last three there is a small price to pay. I know it is the roll of the dice but I think the worst would be is they would get "nastygrams" from the powers that be. As a libertarian, I'm against registering but that's for another time.
