    OK.

    Let's call it Involuntary Servitude then.

    Feel better?

    The draft ended in 1973..
    Selective Service is still in effect.
    All men 18-25 living in the US must register. Even immigrants, legal and illegal.
    Receiving a deferment was not dodging the draft.
    Draft dodgers didn't report as ordered. Many fled the country.
    I received my draft notice in 1972. I dodged the draft by enlisting.

    The draft is unconstituational. However like a alot of things in the constitution the government iignores when it benefits them

    "Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction. ... Finally, the 13th Amendment was passed by the Congress on January 31, 1865.

    It grants the fed gov specific powers. If it isnt listed, it doesnt have that power.
    So consider that and consider what you posted.

    I believe in limited Federal government, and limited government in general as well as state's rights. Is Income Tax also unconstitutional?

    Exactly. The draft is NOT specifically mentioned in the Constitution, but that doesn't stop our government from doing a lot of things not mentioned. They use the catch all Preamble for that.

    The courts have been negligent in many ways by allowing this, and get to decide, rightly, or wrongly what is Constitutional, and what isn't. Evidently, the Draft was considered necessary for the "common defence".
