Hang on there qmark.
by law you had to register with the selective service
By "law", what law? I personally interpret the selective services as slavery, which is un-Constitutional. But, that is my personal passivist opinion. However, I vaguely remember my ex filling out the form for selective service. I recall one of the punishments said that he couldn't apply for grants from the feds like the pell grant, which I used for college. I also recall a conversation we had about the form and how children of the senatewhores and congresscritters didn't sign up. After all, they already had their college guaranteed.
It was a long time ago but I think the penalties were a little more servere than not being able to apply for grants. No need to run to Canada for that.

However contracts are binding. If a person signs their name, then they're obligated to that contract. By filling out that selective service form, a person is contracting with the government and all their rules.
Have fun finding a judge who rules in favor of the constitution.

Some may have, but it would have been political suicide to continue down that road. But just the threat was good enough because most people are law abiding citizens.
