John McCain recommends voluntary civil and military service as a means to unifying the US. Who needs ethnicity, culture, tradition, community, etc. when there’s the state to unify and guide us?
Beyond the good deeds accomplished, Americorps has transformed the lives of young people who have participated in its ranks. They have begun to glimpse the glory of serving the cause of freedom. They have come to know the obligations and rewards of active citizenship.
As someone mentioned to me recently, it’s surely evil to aid a state that’s striving to destroy one’s own people and beliefs. A patriot ought to aid those he has a duty to, not those attacking him…
As simple as it seems, many conservatives continue to mistake their attackers for their own people. And under McCain’s desired service to the state, this confusion would only increase and the West be further dissolved, redefined, and pushed down the memory hole.
Conservatives assure me Obama would do more damage than McCain. With friends like McCain, remnant Americans ought to keep their powder dry.
