The so called Hope and Change candidate continues on with his agenda of an America that does not resemble the one we all grew up in. And not in a good way.
In the last week both chambers Congress has advanced an alarming expansion of the Americorps that resembles something out of the Hitler Youth. It all comes from Obama’s agenda which he stated on his campaign website.
To begin with, the legislation threatens the voluntary nature of Americorps by calling for consideration of “a workable, fair and reasonable mandatory service requirement for all able young people.” It anticipates the possibility of requiring “all individuals in the United States” to perform such service, including elementary school students.
The bill also summons up unsettling memories of World War II-era paramilitary groups by saying the new program should “combine the best practices of civilian service with the best aspects of military service,” while establishing “campuses” that serve as “operational headquarters,” complete with “superintendents” and “uniforms” for all participants. It allows for the elimination of all age restrictions in order to involve Americans at all stages of life. And, it calls for the creation of “a permanent cadre” in a “National Community Civilian Corps.”
But that’s not all. The bill also calls for “youth engagement zones” in which “service learning” is “a mandatory part of the curriculum in all of the secondary schools served by the local educational agency.”
I’m sure the youngsters will really like Obama now, when they’re drafted into his pseudo-military.
Al this vague description doesn’t mask what this seems to be leading to. Indoctrination of our youth at camps, turning kids into tools of the government to enforce policies. Just like Obama is currently using volunteers and ACORN to knock on doors and harass people into agreeing with his legislation. He seems to be adopting a lot of tried and true leftist tactics, like the ones employed by Hugo Chavez. And we all know where that leads.
UPDATE: This law passed.
