    Sure. AFTER they have earned the Right to be a US Citizen. Since there should not be any adult non-citizens in the country it's necessary to determine citizenship before any option for collegiate education exists.

    People who serve the country, whether it be military or civil service.have more respect for the country, it's history and their freedom. Those who denigrate every aspect of America and it's values, the country and it's leaders are the ones who take and never give. Therefore they rightly deserve the same respect they give.

    This is a really good point...I take back the crap I posted earlier where I thought it would be a good idea. All of a sudden we would have millions of young people working for the govt and getting paid. Where is all this money going to come from? Taxes. Cannot imagine that all these people are getting put to valuable work...not exactly a hallmark of govt operations. We will have all kinds of ridiculous programs pop up to employ all the compulsory service. Every Congressman/woman will be instituting their own "service" project to employ people. When people are “forced” to serve it loses a lot of its value anyway and won't magically make everyone patriotic. Respecting ones country is GOOD...mandatory service is BAD!

    Absolutely not under any circumstances. Slavery is not the answer.

    Severely and harshly critiquing our leaders is what responsible citizens do. So read this denigration of our current political situation. Both candidates in the last election were reprehensible. Neither was a good choice and I do believe with all the underhanded money changing hands the system has never been as corrupt as it is now. Man that feels awesome!

    Consider college or trade school and I'd think about it...Otherwise fuck no!

    Neither of those options qualify as national Service. They would simply push more unnecessary college attendance by people who don't need it.
