On July 20, 2008, during his Presidential campaign, Senator Obama 2008 stated, “We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we've set. We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded." I wonder how many of the American people and also the people that voted for this Health Care Bill knew or know what is buried 1300 pages into this mess called the Health Care Bill. WHAT IN THE WORLD DOES A “READY RESERVE CORPS” (CIVILIAN POLICE/MILITARY FORCE) HAVE TO DO WITH HEALTH CARE??? The answer is nothing… BUT IT SURE IS HANDY FOR INDOCTRINATION, INTIMIDATION, AND PUTTING DOWN UPRISINGS OF TEA PARTIERS AND THE LIKE. IT IS GETTING HARDER AND HARDER NOT TO ANTICIPATE AND FORESEE SOME KIND OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE BEING INSTIGATED AND STARTED BY THIS ADMINSITRATION.
How many Americans are going to become part of Obama’s “corps”. Do you find this movement as upsetting as I do? Every American that loves freedom should be upset. The pressing question that is in need of attention should be “who is this protecting --and from whom?” But this shocking and beyond belief scheme received almost no notice or consideration from the Obama news media.
There are three pages of the Health Care Bill creating a Ready Reserve Corps for service in time of national emergency. The executive branch is authorized to expand the Commissioned Corps beyond the previous limit of 2800 individuals. The words "not to exceed 2800" are struck from the law and it establishes a "Ready Reserve Corps" without a cap on numbers or funding! The Commissioned and Ready Reserve Corps can be called to involuntary service in time of "national emergency". The language in the bill is below. Do we need to be worrying about the this? You bet we do.?
Starting on page 1312 of the Health Care Bill You will read this:
