Obama and McCain endorse National Slavery

Yesterday, at ground zero, John McCain and Barack Obama announced their cooperation and favorability for so-called “National Service” legislation. When the Democrats and Republicans agree on something, you know you’ve got something to worry about. You can read all about it.

But what is really behind this call for service? Moreover, why do we need a law to get people to voluntarily help out in their local communities? This is what those at nationalserviceact.org have to say about the legislation:

This website presents information for both voluntary and mandatory National Service. This begs the question of which type of National Service does ANSA prefer.

Neither.

There it is right there in the open: “National Service” does not imply voluntary participation. Of course, any normal reading of the 13th amendment would tell you this is simply illegal:

Amendment XIII

Section 1. Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.

Section 2. Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.

Seems pretty obvious, involuntary servitude is illegal by the thirteenth amendment. But then again, we still have “Selective Service” and every male must involuntarily sign his life away to the State when he turns 18, so we can assume that the constitution doesn’t matter to these people.

Here is what the lawyers for the National Service Act have to say about the legality of their involuntary servitude:

Is mandatory National Service constitutional?

Yes.

The United States has practiced several forms of mandatory National Service throughout its history. The Militia Act of 1792 and the Selective Service System (a.k.a. the Draft) are the two most referenced examples. Probably the most commonly experienced form of mandatory service is jury duty. Also, it can be argued that paying taxes is a form of mandatory National Service.

One can reference dozens of US Supreme Court Cases that weighed individual rights versus civic obligations. The most prominent case on this matter is Butler v. Perry (1916). In this instance the Court ruled that the 13th Amendment does not apply to mandatory national service. For further information on the legal precedence of National Service click HERE

Apparently the 13th amendment only applies to individuals enslaving other individuals, slavery is ok and to be considered a good thing when it’s the State who is the slavedriver.

Update:

[Obama] said he would make federal assistance conditional on school districts establishing service programs and set the goal of 50 hours of service a year for middle and high school students.

For college students, Obama would set the goal at 100 hours of service a year and create a $4,000 annual tax credit for college students that would be tied to that level of service.

[…] In 1990 President George Bush (the first) invaded Iraq on Martin Luther King’s birthday.The day after America observes MLK’s 80th birthday the first black President will be inaugurated. King would, no doubt, be proud. But let us not forget that Barack Obama will not only continue the current invasion of Iraq, but has also come out in support of National Slavery! […]
