“I would like to see American students develop as much fanaticism about the US political system as young Nazis did about their political system during the War.” —Lyndon B. Johnson, 1965
You probably haven't heard, as these things aren't announced over the government propaganda channels (AKA mainstream media), but Obama wants every single young American 18 to 25 years old to be forced into national service and ready to go into military service whenever the president wants more bodies to enforce his will abroad.
Obama's opening salvo for this vile requirement came in 2008 when he spoke of a "civilian national security force".
"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," said Obama the 2008 presidential candidate.
You'd think after realizing that the guy who called for the 21st century American version of the brownshirts and Hitler Youth became president, every American who could do so would have started the process of obtaining a new citizenship and passport for them and their families, getting out of the US tax farm and cutting all ties.
Fast forward to 2013 and now Rep. Charles Rangel (D-NY) has just introduced H.R. 748.
H.R. 748 would require all persons in the United States between the ages of 18 and 25 to perform national service either as a member of uniformed or civilian service. Civilian services include federal, state, and local government programs. But most frighteningly, this house resolution would "authorize the induction of persons in the uniformed services during wartime to meet end-strength requirements of the uniformed services..."
It was bound to come to this. Like any totalitarian state, the USSA wants to make some sort of government service a requirement for everyone, particularly in their prime physical years when their bodies can best meet the requirements of military slaves. Even if these young people don't become cannon fodder, they will literally be forced to perform unpaid labor for their government. Last we checked unpaid labor at gunpoint satisfied the definition of slavery.
Most of these young people are going to prefer "community-based" unpaid labor to getting shot at by the people whom the US government invades and occupies. There will be no real safety in serving the civilian side of this forced labor for the state, however. H.R. 748 makes all persons between 18 and 25 able to be inducted into the uniformed services should the state determine there is such a need. When you consider the continued and growing military aggression of the US, it's almost a certainty that just about every young person in America will be exposed to live combat...maybe even domestically. Especially since it was just revealed that the Department of Homeland Insecurity has just made an order for 2,700 light armored tanks. Apparently, US subjects have a lot of security coming their way!

Who knew that Hunger Games would be so prophetic? Every single child in America can look forward to at least performing slave labor with a good chance that they may be forced to kill others in order to survive. They will be forced to take their chances literally with life and limb to satisfy the bloody ambitions of sociopathic criminal politicians.
How eager are those criminals to get this underway? H.R. 748 was introduced on February 14th, 2013 and was referred to the House Armed Services Committee the very same day!
Time is running out to get away from the US before it literally starts stealing your young people and sacrificing their lives. If you had started taking action when Obama first announced his plans before his election four years ago, you and your family already would have had your other passports and would be safely out of his reach.

P.S. And now Obama wants to get to your kids even earlier. He's proposing a universal pre-K plan so the indoctrination can start for all children in America by age four:
"According to the details of his plan released by the White House, Obama is proposing a new federal-state partnership to provide all low- and moderate-income four-year old children [those from families at or below 200 percent of poverty level] with high-quality preschool, while also expanding these programs to reach additional children from middle class families. 'However, it continues to tout 'preschool for all.' The full extent of Obama’s plan may not become apparent until he releases a proposed budget in mid-March."
Of course, as usual, the reason for even earlier kidnapping and brainwashing is "to help the children." Obama is basing his push on evidence that extremely poor ghetto or rural children become better students later on with an earlier start. But those results certainly won't be universal. The fact is extremely poor children are indeed at a disadvantage because their paternal investment tends to be lower.
But the real reason behind universal pre-K is to expose America's children to state brainwashing at an even younger, more vulnerable age. That way they'll be less resistant to becoming slaves and cannon fodder for the state under things like H.R. 748.
Whatever age your children are, whether they'll be subject to H.R. 748 or universal pre-K, even if you don't have any kids yet! You owe it to yourself and your family to get as clear of the USSA as possible.
