A Scary Proposition

Below is a link to a video of Obama's speech given in Colorodo on July 2, 2008. Around the 15 minute mark he makes the following remark.

“We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.”

Obama won’t answer any questions about it, so I'd like to hear what you think. This has the stench of creating a civilian spy force. I know that may sound a bit far fetched but someone explain to me why we would need to have hundreds of thousands of citizens working for “national security?" Especially one that is as well funded as our military.

Also around the 19 minute mark he begins to talk about students from middle school through college learning how to be active citizens. His idea is to teach them respect for "our institutions" so they take citizenship seriously. He would do this by requiring middle and high school students to perform 50 hours of public service a year and college students to perform 100 hours of public service a year.

Sounds a lot like 'Hitler Youth' to me. Does anyone else question the idea of compelled service for high school and college kids? (He also talks about withholding funding from schools if they don’t comply, which seems pretty contrary to his supposed views on No Child Left Behind) We already see the billboards going up across the country: “Turn in your neighbors for illegal guns." We see police already performing “knock and talks," systematically searching urban households door-to-door without warrants. We saw FEMA confiscate firearms from citizens during Katrina. We see metal detectors, fingerprint scanners, and video cameras being set up in schools. I don't mean to be Orwellian on this one, but it sounds like we are indoctrinating the next generation to be comfortable with being spied upon and having their privacy invaded. These measures have been applied by both parties so I am not saying Obama would be any worse than a McCain presidency. Similar bills were signed by George H. W. Bush, Clinton, and George W. Bush. Domestic spying is non-partisan. FISA allows domestic spying without repercussions - legislation pushed through by our current president and surprisingly supported by Obama. The Patriot Act was passed by wide margins in both parties, and along with expanding government control and their ability to invade privacy, it also expanded the Secretary of Treasury's power to regulate financial transactions particularly involving foreign individuals and entities. Yes, more power to Paulson and the Federal Reserve who brought us the housing crisis. (interesting to note the bailout increases his power even more) Add all these facts put together with this “volunteer” force as big and well-funded as the military and the forcing of our children to "serve" may have a slightly more sinister aim than you otherwise might consider.

Watch the video and think about what he’s saying when he explains how he will compel your kids to “volunteer” through legislation.

If you have made it this far, I will submit further interesting material about Obama's "Truth Squads." I won't go into this now, but could these groups popping up all over the country be a precurser to his civilian security force??
