More about the Universal National Service Act

Mandatory Service Bill Introduced in Congress….Again.

It would seem that there are those, of the Progressive persuasion, that would love to force you and yours into the Mandatory Service of the Federal Government.

Last year this demand for “National Service” was announced in February when President Obama called on Congress to pass a “Bi-Partisan” Service Bill:

The Democratic Congress’s answer to President Obama’s Call was to create the GIVE Act which would set up:

“a commission to investigate, “Whether a workable, fair, and reasonable mandatory service requirement for all able young people could be developed, and how such a requirement could be implemented in a manner that would strengthen the social fabric of the Nation and overcome civic challenges by bringing together people from diverse economic, ethnic, and educational backgrounds.”

But through Bloggers, like Jim Hoft, the public was informed of the “mandatory” draconian measure.  Which in turn caused such an outcry from the American Public that it ensured that the Law, which eventually passed, did not have any suggestion of “mandatory” service.

You would think that after the obvious opposition from the American people to Mandatory Service, that the Politicians in Washington would get the hint and let the matter drop.

But then again we have to remember who we are talking about…

According to an Article in the World Net Daily, Democrat Charlie Rangel has introduced the Universal National Service Act or H.R. 5741…

If this Bill were to become law it would create:

• A national service obligation – either military or civilian – for every citizen and permanent resident, male and female, of the U.S., aged 18 to 42…

• Gives the president the authority to establish the numbers of persons to be selected for military service and the means of selection…

• Requires those not selected for military service to perform their national service obligation in a civilian capacity for a period of two years…

• Deferments for education are only permitted through completion of high school, to a maximum age of 20…

…What is truly disturbing is if you are not eligible for Military Service you will be Drafted into a Civilian Corps for a minimum of 2 years.  Your”Job” in this Civil Corp will then be defined by President Obama. The bill even allows the President to decide who will be selected and how it will be done.

So if the President decided that he wanted to Draft.. oh lets say..All Tea Party members and Conservative Bloggers, then he could, no questions asked.

Now what could possibly go wrong with that…?
