1. So you won't serve your country? I wonder how that arguement will stand up to the scrutiny of your fellow citizens.
There's plenty of other people who want to serve in the armed forces. Let them do it. My Bible trained conscious will not allow me to serve. Big props to those who do, like my father and 3 of my brothers and 4 cousins, I'm the dependent of a 100% disabled Vietnam War vet, and I reap the benefits of that with health insurance until I graduate and no college tuition... it's just not for me at all. And as for other citizens? I don't care what they think.
2. How do you propose to defend that right once the your means of doing so have been taken away?
I'm a bit confused as to your reasoning for using the withdrawal timeline or armed forces dying into a discussion on 2nd amendment rights.
Using unrelated, emotionally charged topics as your rationale for impinging on a Constitutional right seems illogical to me.
Of course I don't want people to needlessly die. I don't see how that has any bearing on this topic.
Well, my point was, what part of the 2nd amend were you referring to? Right to bear arms or right to a militia? What is he taking away? Your right to a gun or your right to form a militia? I'm really confused by what you think he will do? And if you think Obama is charming enough to change the Bill of Rights, then I'm sure you overestimate him.
And when I mentioned the time line (as I know) that is the only I've heard that the Obama admin is planning to do regarding the military.
I'll have to check further and see if you'll be excused as a concientious objector.
I can't imagine the attitude of 'let someone else do it' will go over very well.
Does anyone know what the justification is for having a Civil Force made up of Mandatory volunteers?
To clarify, I mean the right to own a gun.( i.e. personal property rights. )
Obama has already stated that he is all about changing the constitution. I think you underestimate him.
There is a 'New Deal' coming the likes of which has never been seen in the U.S. I'd like to go on record as saying it's going to be a 'Raw Deal'.
The text from Obama’s change.gov website, which went online shortly after the election result, originally appeared as follows-
Obama will call on citizens of all ages to serve America, by developing a plan to require 50 hours of community service in middle school and high school and 100 hours of community service in college every year.
The text was changed at some point on Friday afternoon/evening to the following-
Obama will call on citizens of all ages to serve America, by setting a goal that all middle school and high school students do 50 hours of community service a year and by developing a plan so that all college students who conduct 100 hours of community service receive a universal and fully refundable tax credit ensuring that the first $4,000 of their college education is completely free.
On a separate area of the website, the program was also described under the heading “Require 100 hours of service in college,” but this has also since disappeared.
Clearly, the use of the word “require” suggested that the program would be mandatory, stoking fears that such community service programs would be one aspect of Obama’s promised “civilian national security force” that is “just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded” as the U.S. military.
