The U.S. law creating the military draft was passed in 1940.  It has oppressed generations of young Americans.  Now we have the opportunity to REPEAL THE LAW and abolish the Selective Service System, the federal agency that runs the military draft.

KIDNAPPING TENS OF THOUSANDS OF CHILDREN FROM THEIR FAMILIES are TENS OF THOUSANDS OF COUNTS OF SERIOUIS FELONIES, […]
