    I'm interested in the part where there's this minimum wage servitude to be completed before a person gets his citizenship or voting rights. So, no national service, no rights? Sounds a little hitlerian to me. What's next, hitler youth, or trump youth or whoever is the prez at the time?

    There was/is something decent and honorable about President Obama. Don't talk to me about "values." President Obama is a solid American. Now we've go cheap white trash with no values.

    There are already numerous youth out there giving their time freely to help others. It has been phenomenal what many have done for the survivors of Harvey. We just don’t hear much about it. The kids that would do a good job are already doing it without forced service. Much better, I think.

    Again, there is NOTHING decent or honorable about Obama. Who we have in the white house is a direct result of people like you and those who think that being vile to those who disagree with you is a-ok..

    I did not vote for Trump, nor will I vote for him. But if you progressives were more open to rational thought and compromise, we'd likely have someone in the White House who didn't have some serious personality flaws. However, all that is really just window dressing since the person who ran against Trump is probably the worst human being I've ever had the misfortune to have seen.

    He is not a Muslim, he is a member of the United Church of Christ, even if there was/is something wrong with being a member of the Islamic faith. Why do you slur his daughters? What have they ever done that is wrong? Looks like they are two beautiful American girls.

    I'm talking about the current employees. You retire the upper tier, promote or eliminate the middle and lower tiers and replace the lowest tier with the conscripts.

    No service or dishonorable service, No Citizenship. No Citizenship, No Rights.

    National service? Not a fan of the idea. America is about looking after yourself, not so much the country. People should be attending college so they can make a high wage......
