I did a search and didn't find this yet so id figure Id share... well apparently they are creating a draft like law that requires all young people age 18-25 to enlist in a national service such as a uniformed service for the united sates...


this just sound like Hitler has come back from the dead.. im a free man and should have a choice to join the military and not to be forced to do so...

I think EVERYONE right out of High Scholl Should Be required to do at least 2 years of military service. Also, eliminate the selective service program and save the money for OUR military budget.

No one should be forced to serve any time in the military. Life is too short for this sort of nonsense. I’m glad Australia has no such thing. My other country, Austria does though. It isn’t just military service. In Austria you have the choice to serve in the military for x amount of time - for arguments sake we’ll say nine months. However, if you have objects toward war and all of sort of thing, you can enlist in another service/charity but you serve a longer time, say fifteen months instead of nine. I think in this day and age it’s an outdated concept.

Oh yes, the nazi -er, the obama youth brigade - to indoctrinate the youth who have no hope of getting a job -

I hope that all the young people and near to 18 teenagers see this and realize just what it is - and take a stand against it.

Obama campaigned on this, Youth Service, in his first campaign, so why the surprise?

Anything he didn't accomplish his first term, he will attempt this one. Isn't that what hakf the country re-elected him for?

ETA: Didn't he also plug this as a "pathway to citizenship" for undocumented workers?

I wonder if 12 years of constant war is starting to shrink the ranks of our all volunteer military and forced service is the only way to keep the war machine rolling? They even want to start drafting women and sending them into the meat grinder to die for god and country.

Where would the US get the money to fund this idiocy? Oh yeah, raise taxes.

Government wants to raise the minimum wage, thus creating more unemployment for those within that age group.
Government wants to put pressure on small businesses (Obamacare, taxes) so hiring is lower, and subsequently more within that age group go unemployed.

So government creates the problem.

Then offers a solution.

Then uses that "solution" to justify raising taxes.

No, ... Actually, I think they re-elected him because there was no other real choice.
From my point of view, I think that there should bew a requitement right out of high school because,... Our youth today has a serious case of Dumb A$$.. .. They don't want to work, they don't want to be educated, they spend every waking hour trying to figure the easiest route out. Let them do some military service and Build some CHARACTER. IMHO , .. . it would do OUR country good,. .. it would do OUR Future good,. ... it would make parents Proud that our child are doing their duty to god and country as we did 40+ , and then some, Years Ago. ..

That sets the stage for a Domestic Security Force as promised by then candidate Obama (first election campaign).

I do Not agree with sending women onto the front lines. There are more than enough positions behind the lines. UNLESS of course the female wants to be part of it. It should be by their choice.

I disagree vehemently, OP.

It is an outdated and nazi agenda to force children into unofirms designed to be worn by killers and murderers.

It's a sign that oppression is right around the corner. Tyranny under the bed.

In my honest opinion, we need more thugs and granny bashers, hooligans and addled youth who proliferate today's modern social climate. We need more drunk 17 year olds bashing people outside jimmys night club, pepped up on red bulls and hot sauce. We need more young people attending orgies and driving wrecklessly into crowds of strangers who appear out of no where.

We need more of this.

Putting the fear of discipline into the youth.. what sort of evil swine would consider this.

Down with the man, man... up with anarchy!!!

Rangel has been submitting this bill since long before Obama's time. He claims that lower income Americans are forced into the volunteer army because they don't have the same opportunity as higher income Americans after graduating high school.

He goes on to claim that because the military is filled with poor people's kids and not rich people's kids that they are easily used as fodder.

It's a class statement.

I agree on Rangel's intentions (as you are correct in his class ideology regarding the subject of the draft) BUT if it is BHOs intention to initiate his Domestic Security Force then this is the perfect cover....it came out of Congress not the White House (wink. wink).

Wtf? I thought we abolished slavery in the 19th century.

There are still people today who think it okay for those with the power and the guns to round people up against their will and force them to do their bidding?

Haha, force me to join the military and put an M16 in my hand, I dare you. Yup, I would defend our nation's freedom alright, but not in the way they expect.

You already have a Domestic Security Force, it is called The National Guard!

Oops, that is run by the State Governments. Crap, you have to have a Federal Domestic Security Force to counter the Power of the State's National Guard. You see, you cannot rely on the Federal Armed Services because that pesky Constitution does not allow them to act against citizens on home turf.

Under consideration a bill proposing to draft men for service December 9, 1814




After the best reflection which I have been able to bestow on the subject of the bill before you, I am of the opinion that its principles are not warranted by any provision of the constitution. It is an attempt to exercise the power of forcing the free men of this country into the ranks of the Army, for the general purposes of the war, under color of a military service.

That measures of this nature should be debated at all, in the councils of a free government, is a cause of dismay. The question is nothing less than whether the most essential rights of personal liberty shall be surrendered, and despotism embraced in its worst form.

Is this consistent with the character of a free government? Is this civil liberty? Is this the real character of our constitution? No, indeed it is not. The people of this country have not established for themselves such a fabric of despotism. They have not purchased at a vast expense of their own treasures and their own blood a Magna Charta to be slaves.

A free government with an uncontrolled power of military conscription is a solecism, at once the most ridiculous and abominable that ever entered into the head of man. In my opinion, the sentiments of the free population of this country are greatly mistaken here. The people have too fresh and strong a feeling of the blessings of civil liberty to be willing thus to surrender it. Similar pretenses, they know, are the graves in which the liberties of other nations have been buried and they will take warning.

Laws, Sir, of this nature can create nothing but opposition. If you scatter them abroad like the fabled serpents teeth, they will spring up into armed men. A military force cannot be raised, in this manner, but by the means of a military force. If the administration has found that it cannot form an army without conscription, it will find, if it venture on these experiments, that it cannot enforce conscription without an army. The Government was not constituted for such purposes. Framed in the spirit of liberty and in the love of peace, it has no powers which render it able to enforce such laws. The attempt, if we rashly make it, will fail and having already thrown away our peace, we may thereby throw away our government.

I'm assuming you are youngish? I'm 50 years old. I've seen the brainwashing of our youth, and my step=child, and grand-daughter in school now,about global warming and communism - which the oldest (16 years-old) understands as "brain-washing" - what is your experience?

I can see this "law" as continuing the brain-washing that has been done through public school "education".
