Resolved at the 2-3 February 1980 LNC Meeting:[1]

Whereas the Libertarian Party has a long-standing opposition to registration and conscription, as stated in its national platform, and

Whereas registration for the draft is nothing more than a prelude to military conscription, and

Whereas conscription is slavery and poses the greatest threat to the survival of a free society in this decade,

Therefore Be It Resolved that the Libertarian National Committee opposes any form of compulsory registration or the draft, and

Be It Further Resolved that we further endorse civil disobedience as an appropriate moral and practical means of resisting mandatory registration and the draft.
