I love my country, but not enough to fight for it for a War-Mongering Daddy's Boy.
It's an automatic thing for when I turned 18. I didn't register, it's against my will.
Meaning if there's a draft, I could be forced to go fight.

That's it. I'm moving to Canada as soon as I can.
There's no draft. There isn't going to be a draft(as long as the Republicans are in charge, at least). It's just a procedural thing started by Jimmy Carter during the Soviet invasion of Chekoslovakia. I had to register for it too, and it offended me on just about every level of my being. But don't think too hard about it.
I still say we need to junk the entire Selective Service system, and that's why Ron Paul is my personal hero.
What age are we free and clear from it? I am 25 so I would imagine I only have a few more years of the waiting.

I am not sure how that affects selective service stuff.

Freedom on the 26th birthday. I've got about two and a half years to go. Rangel's draft bill would be up till age 42, but that's something else entirely and has no chance of passing.
