The Boy Scouts isn't a government mandated 'service to country' organization. Rahm Emanuel's proposed civilian 'service to country' organization would be mandated and funded by the federal government. When I see pictures like the one I posted earlier of youth in the CIty Year program on the stage with the logo behind it, I'm reminded of Hitler's Germany and Communist China as they were implimenting socialism. They organized and basically brainwashed the youth into 'service to state'. Maybe it is just irrational fear, but I see similarites. And I'm sure people in Germany and China thought it was just irrational fear and innocuous enough.

Wanna see what fascism looks like ? Watch the video below. It's not even three minutes long.

Since you seem to know all. Tell me who the enemy within is to warrant such an organization? You, me the general public? Why make it mandatory, the armed services are voluntary?

So you'll be the first in line for service no matter how much it disrupts your life? Oh wait its not voluntary.

How's that song go. "Welcome back to the U.S.S.R"

If Obama invited his terrorist buddies to the White House and they shot up his entire staff and the population of D.C., you'd say he just had a lapse in judgment.

What is getting old is you Obaaaaaaama Kool Aid slurping apologists who refuse to admit that the jackass you elected is way out of his league and isn't qualified or fit to be president of an 8th grade class, much less the most powerful nation in the world.

Obama says:

"We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we've set. We've gotta have a civilian national security force that's just as strong, just as powerful, just as well-funded."

To which the video responds:

"Is this the change America is looking for? A police state."


Nowhere does Obama say anything about a mandatory government service program. It was the cabinet member in the interview who advocated it, and he has a right to advocate whatever he wants in a free country. The great irony is that whenever you stomp on a person for having different ideas, you are in fact being the fascist.

I say your fear is irrational because it is. Stop pretending Obama was elected supreme leader of the earth. We still have a legislative and judiciary branch, and if Obama was really advocating your death panels and gestapo forces (which he's not) they could easily overbear him.

You want to talk about communistic government mandated programs? Let's look at the public school. Every citizen must pay for the public school system, and if they have children, they must either send them to the public school system, pay for a private school, or educate their children themselves. But, still, their children must take a government mandated test which assures that the children are learning what the government wants them to know.

Any compulsory service is a bad idea. Emanuel is Obama's mouthpiece, and this is a serious piece of business, and definitely a legitimate concern...
