Obama's "Mandatory" Youth and Civilian Force?
Please read this WND article and tell me I'm dreaming. I am sure that the photo I chose for this post will no doubt cause controversy, but I'm trying to make a point here. I think people had best listen.
In America, parents are the ones to decide their children's education and activities, not the government. I think young people and old people alike should decide for themselves what they're going to do in life, what they're going to think and believe, and how they will serve their fellow man. The government has no right to mandate any such kind of service. It reminds me of the government-mandated "subbotniks" in the former Soviet Union, or worse yet, re-education camps for people who didn't think the way the government thought they ought to think.
Such "mandatory" training etc. might start out innocuously enough, but will it end as innocuously? A very good question. All we have to go on is the ideology of those advocating this kind of thing. It's not the Boy Scouts.
Of course, the media will gloss this over even though it's right out of the horses' mouth. Most people will look at you with glazed eyes and think you're a conspiracy nut. Obama and Rahm Emanuel could say it live on national television, and people would insist that they didn't say it. Down the Orwellian "memory hole" it goes.
I've said it before, and I'll keep saying it until proven wrong. This nation's voters asked for it, and boy, are they going to get it!
