How to Dodge the Draft?
    #3160576 - 09/21/04 05:23 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

Hey All Shroomers,

I have read from a few sources that there is a possibility that the Draft will be in acted by July 2005 and this time, nastier than ever. This version of the draft legislation would make it harder for one to cross a border into an ajoining nation and also, women would be drafted.

Whether or not you agree with this (do a google search and find out for yourself or visit www.sss.gov) I need help brainstorming ideas about how to become ineligible for the draft. Any ideas you could throw my way that would keep me from having to kill strangers would be much appreciated. Lets hope this never happens and we can keep on chilling.

Thanks, Peace

You could kill yourself.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

I think you may be on to something there. Last I checked, the military still had a "Don't ask, don't tell" policy.

People get kicked out of the military for saying that they are gay.

You know, I've sometimes wondered about the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy.  Seems to me if they're referring to one's sexual orientation, it should go both ways, but somehow I doubt you'd get kicked out of the military for saying you're straight(unless it's the Navy :grin:).

I know of some people that got out of the Viet Nam draft and all did it by doing something that would call their sexuality into question.

Wearing womans underware, leaving signs that they wear makeup, to just acting like they were the bigest flamers to ever set foot into the enlistment branches. I believe them when they say it worked for them back then but I have my doubts that it is still the surefire way to get rejected nowadays.

The "return of the draft" myth is just that -- a myth. It was started by Democratic supporters as a way to scare young'uns away from voting for Bush, despite the fact that the congressman and senator who introduced the resolution are (of course) both Democrats.

There isn't a hope in hell that the bill will pass, and even the two Dem sponsors realize that.

Don't get your knickers in a twist over it.

What is your definition of 'myth'? Does it mean, 'within the realm of possibility'?


--------------------
To call humans 'rational beings' does injustice to the term, 'rational.'  Humans are capable of rational thought, but it is not their essence.  Humans are animals, beasts with complex brains.  Humans, more often than not, utilize their cerebrum to rationalize what their primal instincts, their preconceived notions, and their emotional desires have presented as goals - humans are rationalizing beings.

Not a hope in hell the Democrat-sponsored bill will pass. There certainly won't be a draft by July 2005.

Oh, maybe if Kerry wins (where else will he get that 40,000 extra troops he's yammering about?) and Dems regain the House and Senate.... nah, even then some Dems will vote against it.

And the odds of Kerry winning are not that great anyway.

But -- within the realm of "possibility"? Sure. It's also possible that aliens from Beta Reticuli could land on the White House lawn tonight.

How about just telling the government that you won't go. Sure it might mean jail time but at least you won't be labeled a coward whilemaking a political statement about the war. If you think that something is wrong, don't try and figure out a way to avoid it, fight it.

I think pinky's right, the only mentions I've heard of a potential draft have been pure speculation.

But hey, if you want to move to Canada, it's nice up here.

I think the best bet would be to move out.
