If things got so bad that Congress initiated the draft again, I'd probably would have already volunteered as it would have to get really, really bad before the start up the draft again.

Yep. And There will be no war with NK. Think about it. The full might of the US is insane. A small country would never have a chance. The fact we haven't defeated ISIS/Dash is quite pathetic. The difference is that if NK even launched a nuke we would declare war. As far as I'm concerned ISIS is not a war, its a humanitarian aid mission. Wars have malice and hatred. The War against ISIS is fueled simply by pity and religious ideology.

Actually you can't ditch the country anymore, they fixed that a couple decades ago in partnership with other countries. 1) You are dual taxed for 10 years, by America and your new country http://time.com/money/4298634/expat-expatriate-taxes-us-myths/ 2) If there is a draft other countries will deport you back, in particular Canada. 3) Mexico has a wall so you aren't going that way.

Also they have laser eye surgery for glasses, I got mine done in service for FREEEEEEEEEE :D.

Also the ISIS Ideology isn't religious its more something like this: http://www.spiraldynamics.com/book/SDreview_Dinan.htm

They are here:

3. Red: Exploitative Rough and harsh, rugged authoritarianism, finds expression in slavery or virtual slavery, exploitation of unskilled labor. Generally run by a Top Boss and series of proxies, strict division of have's and have not's. Assumption is that people are lazy, must be forced to work. True leaders must suppress natural human tendencies. Currently evident in street life and gangs in inner cities. Motivated by "heroes" and conquest. Feudalism. (Terrible Twos, feudal kingdoms, soldiers of fortune, many rock stars, Power Rangers, rebellious youth, 20% of world population, 5% of power)

and Obama America is trying to get everyone to here:

6. Green: Communitarian Sensitive and humanistic, the focus with green is community and personal growth, equality, attention to environmental concerns. Work is motivated by human contact and contribution, learning from others. Being liked is more important than competitive advantage, value openness and trust, fear rejection and disapproval. Leaders become facilitators, less autocratic. Hierarchies blur in the move towards egalitarianism with a resulting tendency towards inefficiency and stagnation. Can become so bogged down and ineffectual, though, that people revert to go-getter individualism of orange. (Rogerian counseling, Esalen, GreenPeace, Jacques Costeau, Jimmy Carter, John Lennon's music, Doctors without Borders, ACLU, Ben & Jerry's, animal rights, deep ecology, 10% of population, 15% of power)

But apparently America majority doesn't like that, nor do the military leaders stuck over there having to pitch this crap, and go figure like it says in Green we reverted back to Orange under Trump:

5. Orange: Entrepreneurial Personal success orientation, each person rationally calculating what is to their personal advantage. Motivations are largely economic, people are responsive to perks, bonuses, money rather than loyalty, group belongingness, or life employment. Rational capacities allow people to test many options. Competition improves productivity and fosters growth. This is probably the dominant vMeme in America today. Main concerns are autonomy and manipulation of the environment. Usually results in free market economy and multi-party democracy. (Ayn Rand, Wall Street, Rodeo Drive, cosmetics industry, Dallas, trophy hunting, Hong Kong, GQ, Mediterranean yachts, 30% of world population, 50% of power)

Which is why it feels so much like Trump America is taking steps backward right now, as well as Europe.

In terms of Global Social Dynamics
WE ARE!

Seems unnecessary, most ground troops wouldn't even see the enemy before they are bombarded by our Air Force. Same thing happened in Desert Storm, after the initial fighting, the Iraqi's surrendered, deserted, or were obliterated from air campaigns and tank battalions before any boots on the ground could engage them. Marines and the Army have been glorified these last few decades, the real power of the United States rests on it's massive Aerial and Naval fleets.

When I lived in Virginia The State had a law that you could not even apply for college benefits unless you were registered.

and no I'm not a Trump supporter. I was a Sanders supporter. but with a president who is insane, I figure he will restart the Korean War to get people off of the Russian thing plus WAR=RATEINGS. Yes, i said restart as the Korean War never rally ended just signed a status of arms agreement. That's why there's a DMZ

Also, the US government is looking to add Females to Selective service at some point. You know because of the gender equality thing.

Should the government add the Lady's too? I say yes why not. What do the Crunchypeople think?

Actually the cut off is 45 though the traditional norm is 26. But if it really is in the shit they will take you wither you want to or not. Me I severed and signed up the day after i hit 18 back in the day. It is the duty of every male citizen of age to sign up for the draft, if you don't expect a visit from your local sheriff since it is their job to enforce it.

Funny how people apposed to their government consider themselves patriots last time I checked you sort of had to be for the system to be considered on.


26 is the cut off unless they need more artillery fodder I err mean capable warriors yea

Well here is the website for it top end is 45 for bullet catchers which is also the top end for bullet catchers in the state militia. Mostly I suspect they would drop the middle age guys towards the rear unless they had prior service and a MOS that would put them on the front line. thankfully diabetes is a 4F now so I'm off the list that and turning 47 this august. Yes getting older more foolish as well but with age comes a certain level of prescriptive on life.

N.Korea is more likely to overthrow their dictator than the US to declare war because of a couple missile tests.

Just because there is a war doesn't mean you'll be drafted, we'd have to be losing or at a disadvantage. NK isn't as strong enough and doesn't have the resources to win against America the problem is that many SK will die from NK's artillery; China is a problem/dark horse in this as well. China has historically took advantage of Korea, interfered in the first Korean war, and the last thing they would like to see is a unified Democratic Korea that is a strong ally of the US. NK is no big deal how China will react is a problem.

I can guarantee you that there will be no draft if there is a military action in North Korea. A draft would only be considered if there was a significant need for manpower.

A draft would never actually happen with the military numbers we have.

That's actually not true ...in the last couple of ones, the only reason why it wasn't active was due to A) the fact being that the top bass was worried about the publics reaction to what was already becoming a unpopular war.
B) I think (Notice I think) that it's something that must be enacted though the Senate, and they had children of age to go. They didn't want to see their own to die.


Because, there was definitely a need, they were playing russian roulette with our soldiers with them doing numbers of tours that was bordering on cruel and kind of like we were teasing the enemy to kill them. So, let me make this clear, it can happen and actually pretty easily. Our numbers in the military aren't as big as you think it is.
