So obviously, you didn’t understand it. So again, obviously, your statements made it clear you didn’t understand.
And remain there for the rest of your life, a criminal on the lamb from the law, literally. Because when the draft is over and the war is over, that doesn't mean that draft dodgers aren't still sought after or that some statute of limitations has run out. After vietnam, the president himself had to pardon en mass everyone who fled the country and dodged the draft, otherwise they'd still be pursused to this day
Is that hard for you to understand as well?
What makes you think that the judge presiding is going to allow media in the court room or will allow the trial to become a soapbox? They can put a gag order on you and your lawyers and anyone associated with the case.
My my, what a pessimistic, linear thinker you seem to be.
I can write letters to every newspaper I can find, can’t I?
I can send letters with my friends and family, have them publish them on the web, can’t I?
I can have friends and family get together and lobby various news sources so that I may be granted an interview wherever I’m confined, can’t I?
You need to enhance the scope of your thought.
Your scope of life is too small.
I’m not going to live in fear, not fear of the government, not fear instilled by individuals such as you.
That’s my stand, and you can attack my stance as much as you like,
WAS THAT TOO HARD FOR YOU TO UNDERSTAND?
WWII where we are fighting to save millions of people from being murdered because of being born a jew
If you can't parse what the meaning of
If you are honestly considering resisting the draft and even dodging it if your number comes up then you really, really need to go into it with the understanding that, until you are captured and sentenced, you will be a wanted criminal and, if you left the country, will not be allowed back in.
Apparently its too difficult for you to decide if what you are claiming to be ready to do is illegal or not.
I have only pointed out that if they want they can prevent you from using the court proceedings as a way of spreading your message to break the law. This is not 'pessimistic'.
No, you cannot violate a court ordered gag order
No, you cannot violate a court ordered gag order. How does having your mommy deliver the letter make a difference?
No, you cannot violate a court orderd gag order and neither can your mommy or friends.
You perhaps need to learn what 'enhance' and 'scope' mean.
You know absolutely nothing about me kid.
And I suggested that you should exactly how?
Dr, your threats are getting you nowhere. Stop the harrasment.

To all of those who would post your willingness to dodge the draft, please also post your name and address. It will make life a little easier on the police.
"RUN COWARD RUN"
Deep within this Marine, the hatred I have for you has no cure,
you ran and let My Country down, and that's for sure ....
I lived in the jungle where day after day it was death, blood, sweat and tears,
but you really didn't care about me in Vietnam, for you had no fears ....
By day and night you'd protest, party, laugh and play,
while back in Vietnam, "Tom's been killed" I'd hear them say ....
As a Marine I stand Proud and Tall, from My Country, I'd never run,
even though I know Vietnam is not a game, nor is it fun ....
I made alot of friends in Vietnam .... Tom, Bill, Gunner and Joe,
but to visit them now, to Arlington National Cemetary I must go ....
One day I stood in silence overlooking the graves of all who died,
they had served their country with Honor, Dignity and Pride ....
I cried tears one rainy day in Vietnam until I couldn't see,
trying to comfort my dying friend, he said to me, "bye Al, remember me" ....
My close friend had died for his country with Pride, and without shame,
while you went to Canada thinking this was all a game ....
Never shall I consider forgiving you for running away,
to me, your a coward and a disgrace to My Country is all I can say ....
The hatred embedded within me toward cowards like you,
will never be forgotten within me, no matter what you say or do ....
America is My Country, and it's the freedom that I enjoy and love,
and I will serve My Country again if push comes to shove ....
To avoid the draft, you deserted My Country to do nothing but hide,
while American Patriots fight in Vietnam, and many have died ....
You treated me with great dis-respect and dis-honor when I came back,
you smoked your weed, called me filthy names, and manners you did lack ....
War is hell, and we realize that many good men will die,
It breaks my heart to see parents of KIA's break down and cry ....
You don't deserve the freedom that I fought to preserve, you ran to hide,
so stay in Canada cowards, and permanently there reside ....
This Marine shall NEVER forgive you for running, or forget it,
without shame or guilt, upon your grave I shall spit .

I would not go. My personal goals in life do not include killing another person and having somebody's casket on my soul is not the burden I want to live with. I refuse (and have already been asked) to use my education toward any type of military inclusion.
If it came down to it I would flee to another country to dodge it.

Will you dodge the draft?
Don't turn this into a debate. But, if you are in the U.S.A or U.K and are male or female 18-26 years of age, post whether you will dodge the draft or not when it comes.
