Senate candidate from Texas wants to make year of ‘service to country’ mandatory. My reply: Fuck off, slaver. Excerpts follow, with my comments:
Get that, True Believers? Required. No opting out. Everybody is required, by law, to participate, or else (presumably) the Imperial government will send men with guns out to get you; compliance will be forced. Under the law only government can legally initiate the use of force, and would-be Senator O-Rourke is proposing to do so, to use men with guns to enforce this idiotic law.
There’s a word for involuntary servitude encoded in law, Mr. O’Rourke, and it ain’t a pretty one.
O’Rourke, who currently represents the 16th District of Texas, which includes El Paso, held a town hall in Corsicana on Thursday and shared his idea with those in attendance.
O’Rourke’s idea would require “every young person,” regardless of their socioeconomic background, to serve their country in some way whether that be in military service, a medical unit, a teaching unit etc.
Sorry, but this is not how liberty works. And, I would say the same if a Republican had come up with this little slice of totalitarianism. I have heard some Conservatives say everyone should be compelled to serve in the military for a couple of years. Uh, how about no. Again, that is not how liberty works
