Real Debate Wisconsin: Have you heard about Obama's Civilain National Security Force?
I have linked this blog post, though it dates from the general election season (July), because I have noted with concern the amount of talk flying around about Obama's Civilian Corps ( which was signed by Defenese Dept. Secty. on Jan. 23). In my opinion, Obama and Emanuel are aiming at an expanded AmeriCorps/Peace Corps type program, which will provide jobs to strengthen our national infra stucture, while at the same time requiring those who are contracted to deploy overseas. I fail to see where members of this task force will be armed, or forced to support the executive branch of the government rather than the constitution. Of course, in a worst case scenario it is possible, but certainly not probable. I think there may be something afoot which will hearken back to an FDR era economic emergency task force. But nothing like the "Obama is the new Hitler" scenarios that those on the right within the blogosphere are painting.
