Obama's Civilian National Security Force

In several of his speeches, including his prime time infomercial last night, Barack Obama has mentioned his "civilian national security force" idea. What is it? What is it supposed to do? He said "we can't just rely on the military for our national security, we need a civilian national security force that is just as powerful, just as well funded."


What is his intention with this civilian national security force? He said, "Loving your country shouldn't just mean watching fireworks on the 4th of July," in a speech in Colorado Springs, Colo. "Loving your country must mean accepting your responsibility to do your part to change it."

Change it? What? It's not the country per se that needs changing, it's Washington DC. There is just something not right about all of this.

The real question today is why isn't the major media even talking about it? Do a Google search and see that none of the major newpapers or TV networks are writing articles about this. The only people commenting are conservative bloggers.

OK, it could be his attempt at a John Kennedy Peace Corps thing or Bushs' USA Freedom Corps and doesn't warrant serious attention? Neither Kennedy nor Bush had socialist/communist tendancies like Obama does. This is the kind of thing that reminds us of Hitler's youth corps... (There I got my first Hitler/Obama reference, gee I feel so much better).
