    this sounds an awful lot like a Hitler's Youth Brigade or something. I hope I'm dead before I have to watch this.

    I don't have a problem with people helping others. I have a problem with the government telling me I must do this.

    ]“We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that is just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded.” President Obama July 2008
    Change is coming




    The quote above has naught to do with "volunteering" to help others. What the hell exactly is a "civillian national security force"?

    The quote doesn't come from the bill and is an irrelevancy. Look at the sections from the actual bill....

    they're putting things together that aren't related except in their own minds.

    What part of "mandatory service" do you NOT see as "force"?
