    I have no problem with requiring participation from people that use government resources. You have kids in public school? If the school needs help and can not get it from volunteers, no problem, though the requirements and penalties would require a LOT of work.

    I personally think every person 16 to 40 should be in a State sponsored militia. Local Communities run their militias and could use them for things like this. Freedom is NOT actually FREE.

    I agree 100%....nothing wrong with involving parents in their kids' education.

    I think in Israel they require everyone to serve at least two years in the military after they get out of school. I'm not positive but I think it's them.

    I agree with the militia too.

    Really Gunny? I guess the "REQUIRE" part would be have to considered in this situation...however, parents should be more involved in their kids education.

    My question is, if you can't force an 18 year old senior to stay in school, how are you going to "force" a full grown adult to come to school?

    How can you have "required" "volunteers"? Am I missing something or is this really conscription?

    It's a load of old rot too.

    I suggest you do some research. What you will discover is that for the most part schools in just about every local are paid not by the public but by LAND owners. And more recently by those playing the lottery.

    Right, and anyone that lives in a building is paying property tax, directly or indirectly.

    doh!
