    I got this card thingy in the mail today from the "Selective Service System." The stupid thing says I have to register, it says it like a million times, but doesn't say what for exactly. It says men 18-25 years old have to register because its the law. "Failure to register is a felony and may result in up to $250,000 in fines, up to 5 years imprisonment, or both."

    It says I have to go to http://www.sss.gov to register. According to the website,
    On October 5, 2004, the House of Representatives voted 402 - 2 to defeat H.R. 163, the bill cited as proof that the Selective Service was preparing to reinstate a military draft. The vote made official what has been a reality since January 7, 2003, when H.R. 163 was introduced despite nearly total opposition in Congress to restoring the draft. Without Congressional support, the draft cannot be reinstated. A similar bill languishes in the Senate.
    What should I do?

    From what I read you are still required to register. So do it. Unless you have a spare $250000.
    The best way to keep a secret:- Tell everyone not to tell anyone.

    I don't want to register! What if the draft happens? No one's sending me anywhere to get my ass blown off, hell with that.

    @ziggyjuarez
    No I'm not flat footed. I don't think prison sounds too good right about now either.

    Do whatever you want. But be forewarned. You can never get a Government job (post office etc.), government loan or grant (pell grants, fha home loans) without registering.

    Compared to a $250,000 fine/5 years in prison, not getting a government job/loan is the least of my problems.

    Looks like I'm going to have to register, wether I like it or not.

    Well, if they can feck you up if you dont register,
    I guess its a must.

    Also, might be good to start learning the languade they speak in ME,
    (Arabic?) why? I dunno, just a hunch...

    They aren't trying to draft you.

    Every male in the US must register for the draft upon turning 18. It's the law. It's no big deal, everyone does it.
