Signing up for Driver's Licence = Registering for Draft
[Editor's Note: As mentioned in David Wiggin's
article on avoiding the draft, you stand the best chance of not being
drafted, by not registering with Selective Service. Do
not believe the Arizona state director of Selective Service in the article
below when he says: "this doesn't mean that the draft is coming back".
TRUST ME, the draft IS COMING BACK AND IT WILL BE IN PLACE IN EARLY SPRING
OF 2005. Before you allow your child to apply for a driver's licence, find
out if your state is registering your child for Selective Service as part
of the licence application (which sorely needs to be challenged in court,
as it is wholly improper and illegal to combine the two). Obtain a driver's
licence in a state that does not combine Selective Service registration
with the driver's licence application. Your child's life is WORTH THE EFFORT.
Do not allow your son or daughter to be sucked into the military meat grinder.
Once you are exposed to the brutality and horror of war, YOU ARE NEVER THE
SAME AGAIN FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE. More US soldiers committed SUICIDE
(60,000) after returning from Vietnam than actually died in Vietnam
(58, 000). And there are already cases of retuning soldiers who had served
in Iraq and have committed suicide because they couldn't live with themselves
for having followed orders to KILL UNARMED Iraqi prisoners or detainees.
A JUSTIFIED and Legal war is one thing, but giving up your life and innocence
for the satanic, draft dodging cowards running this America-destroying Illuminati
puppet regime is insane (Kerry is an Illuminati puppet too, have no delusions)

Signing up for draft to change: Registering
will be tied to getting driver's license
ARIZONA DAILY STAR
America hasn't had a military draft since 1973, but Arizona
intends to be ready if it ever happens again. Under a new state law that
takes effect Jan. 1, men between 18 and 25 will be automatically registered
for selective service whenever they apply for driver's licenses or state
The change will make Arizona one of 30 or so states with similar
compulsory sign-ups for draft age men.
"We are going to use the driver's license for the purpose
of seeing that young men are registered," said Tucsonan Victor Schwanbeck,
director of the state's selective service system.
But "this doesn't mean that the draft is coming back,"
said Schwanbeck, a lawyer.
He said the state is simply seeking a fairer and more efficient
way of ensuring that young men comply with a decades-old federal law that
requires them to register for selective service.
Until now, draft-age males have been allowed to register voluntarily,
usually on the Internet or by filling out a form at a post office.
But nearly 40 percent of the state's 18-year-olds typically
don't register, often because they don't know about the requirement, state
officials say. And no one actively hunts them down to make sure that they
There are indirect penalties for those who fail to register.
For example, they are barred from attending state-funded universities or
from holding government jobs.
Under the new system approved by the Arizona Legislature,
"probably 95 percent of them will be registered because they want to
drive," Schwanbeck said.
Lt. Col. Gerald Paulus, an Arizona National Guard member and
commander of the state's selective service system, said he's not aware of
any plans to resurrect the draft, even with the nation now involved in two
simultaneous wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
From the 1940s to the 1970s, conscription was a favored method
for raising large number of troops to supplement U.S. military missions,
But the modern volunteer military, with its advanced weaponry
and longer firing ranges, doesn't require the same large numbers of people
to "sit in the trenches," he said.
"We can deliver a lot more firepower with fewer individuals,"
Still, he said, the government maintains the selective service
system as a potential "third tier" of national protection - behind
the regular military and reserve troops - just in case America ever faced
a situation so dire that the draft had to be reintroduced to deal with it.
These days, there are differing philosophies about the desirability
of having conscripts involved in military operations, Paulus noted.
Some think it's preferable to have the military made up of
volunteers rather than forcing unwilling civilians to serve. Others think
that the presence of conscripts tends to make governments more careful about
going to war since the cost, in casualties, is more widely shared throughout
