This is from pages 61-62:
It's time for a real Patriot Act that brings out the patriot in all of us. We propose universal civilian service for every young American. Under this plan, All Americans between the ages of eighteen and twenty-five will be asked to serve their country by going through three months of basic training, civil defense preparation and community service. ...
Here's how it would work. Young people will know that between the ages of eighteen and twenty-five, the nation will enlist them for three months of civilian service. They'll be asked to report for three months of basic civil defense training in their state or community, where they will learn what to do in the event of biochemical, nuclear or conventional attack; how to assist others in an evacuation; how to respond when a levee breaks or we're hit by a natural disaster. These young people will be available to address their communities' most pressing needs.
What is happening to America? Land of the Free? Hardly! "Young people will know" is the words he uses. "The nation will enlist them for three months." How is this free? Does the government feel as though they have a right to our lives? We will just know that we are going to be enlisted. This is so wrong that it's hard to know where to begin! If this is ever implamented, I hope there is extreme backlash across America at such an unjust program.
Here's an idea, Mr. Rahm, you have your little three-month education program but make it OUR CHOICE whether we want to join up in this little government program. No where in the constitution does the federal government have the power to implament such a program.
Spread the word about this travesty, for the sake of freedom.
