I just don't know what to say here, Obama: from optimism to ominism (sp?) Perhaps mandatory American service just around the corner?I surely expect
More fear mongering from the government for the next 4 years,I expect we ate in for a few surprises yet from Obama.Will our police officers be armed
with mp5's and hummers orAPC's?

Obama In his own words :
"There was that sense of sacred obligation that, frankly, we have lost during
these last two wars," Obama said. "I want to restore that."
"But it's also important that a president speaks to military service as an
OBLIGATION not just of some, but of many. You know, I traveled, obviously, a lot over the last 19 months. And if you go to small towns, throughout the
Midwest or the Southwest or the South, every town has tons of young people who are serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. That's not always the case in
other parts of the country, in more urban centers. And I think it's important for the president to say, this is an important obligation. If we are
going into war, then ALL of us go, not just SOME."
"If we are going into war, then all of us go, not just some."
