"H.R. 5741 is currently being argued in the house of representatives. If passed, H.R. 5741 will give the president the power to require 2 years of compulsory service from every US resident between ages 18 and 42. That's not a misprint: everyone between ages eighteen and forty-two will be required to serve in any capacity at the president's whim."This is, in the simplest terms, the President's private army. The following are excerpts from the resolution:
"It is the obligation of every citizen...to perform a period of national service."This resolution is the nationalization of the civilian population, granting two years obligatory servitude to the POTUS. If you refuse to volunteer for the military, you are required to conduct two years civil labor at the discretion of the POTUS... answering to the POTUS.
"The term 'national service' means military service or service in a civilian capacity...[and] obligation under this title shall be performed either (1) as a member of an active or reserve component of the uniformed services; or (2) in a civilian capacity that, as determined by the President, promotes national defense, including national or community service and service related to homeland security."
They came after the banks, wall street, the auto industry, the health industry... and now they are coming for YOU!
Imagine, a land of liberty where civil service is mandatory... where you are obligated to answer directly to the President (foregoing ANY local elected representation), to perform services deemed of the highest importance to securing the homeland.
This has got to stop - it has all gone too far. This is not my America. My America is one personal responsibility, individual liberty, and of a government who answers to the people - not the other way around. As always, it is my obligation to resist.
Should this pass and become law, I will resist to the fullest extent allowed under the constitution, to which I am sworn to uphold and defend. I will resist to the highest fiber of my moral being, guided by natures God, who reminds me that liberty is a self evident right for all men. I will resist this, and any unjust law, for as Martin Luther King Jr wrote from his Jail Cell in Birmingham, AL: "There are just laws and there are unjust laws. I would agree with St. Augustine that an unjust law is no law at all... One who breaks an unjust law must do it openly, lovingly...I submit that an individual who breaks a law that conscience tells him is unjust...is in reality expressing the very highest respect for law."
The next civil war in this country will be fought in the hearts and minds of the citizenry. There are two Americas, as I have said time and again. One America who supports and defends individual liberty and responsiblity, and another who supports government dominance in all things, the absence of liberty. I side with liberty. Live free or die: Death is not the worst of evils.
