The very fact they are going to make it mandatory would mean there will be some form harsh reprisal or deterrent for refusing, i.e. jail, huge fines, denied continuing education, and or just be drug out of your house and forced to attend.Originally posted by: eskimospy
No it doesn't. The draft is constitutional, and you have absolutely no idea what this 'mandatory service requirement' is in relation to. It could be 'mandatory' to get your high school diploma. It could be 'mandatory' to qualify for government benefits. I SINCERELY DOUBT (and I'm being as nice as possible here) that it's going to be some sort of 'mandatory' thing where you are subject to imprisonment or court sanction for not participating.Originally posted by: Socio

Quick rule of thumb: a website entitled "End Times Roundtable" is highly suspect. Here's link to a rational summary of this proposed bill-straight from the government:
What the end-of-earthers think is a slavery program-to be imposed by a Black President, no less
This bill is not about imposing slavery. It is the program Obama promised during his campaign to reward students for service to America by paying part of their college costs.
