Obama Brownshirts Now?

Hey, Bots...this might be your chance to fulfill your dreams of serving your Messiah...more info coming in but look what you have to look forward, and I believe we have such a thing called a "National Guard" already...ohhhhh, that's right...they're in Iraq.

What is Obama's "civilian national security force?"

Obama: "We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives 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."

TN's Blue Collar Muse wants to know what that means, and says the MSM has not fleshed out the details from Obama.

BCM: The questions are legion and the implications of such an organization are staggering! What would it do? According to the title, it's a civilian force so how would it go about discharging "national security" issues? What are the Constitutional implications for such a group? How is this to be paid for? Is this accounted for in some of Obama's currently proposed tax increases or will we need more taxes to fund this enterprise? The statement was made in the context of youth service. Is this an organization for just the youth or are adults going to participate? How does one get away from the specter of other such "youth" organizations from Nazi Germany and the former Soviet Union when talking about it?

Joe Farah has, so far, been unsuccessful in getting any information out of the Obama camp on this. No MSM outlet is asking about it and the blogosphere is just ramping up. I'd like to see the rest of us get involved and get some clarity on exactly what Barack is proposing. At the least, it would seem a major expense that would have to be paid for. The 'at worst' options are pretty terrifying to contemplate. I've put in a request to the Obama campaign for some amplification and clarification. We'll see what they have to say. More on this later ...
