To require all persons in the United States between the ages of 18 and 42 to perform national service, either as a member of the uniformed services or in civilian service in furtherance of the national defense and homeland security, to authorize the induction of persons in the uniformed services during wartime to meet end-strength requirements of the uniformed services, and for other purposes.
So the government wants to force us to serve 2 years in either uniformed or civilian service under the sole authority of the President. Who cares if you have a good job or are in college, etc? Under this bill, there would be no choice. If you are between the ages of 18 and 42, male or female, you would have to serve. Land of the “Free” my ass. What a bunch of slave driving hypocrites. How many of those same politicians or politician’s husbands skipped to Canada during the last draft? Now they feel they have the right to force others into service on their behalf.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with voluntary service. Forced service is the most evil thing on the planet. The Russians had forced service called conscription, the Germans did as well and it was also seen in the V-1 rocket factories. Mr. Obama and Congress take your brown shirts and go to hell.
