National service mandated by the state is what Europe had for centuries. It was called serfdom. For example, in France, citizens were required to perform public service building and repairing roads and other public projects for hundreds and thousands of hours a year. Serfdom wasn't eliminated in France until the French revolution, one of the "liberty" parts of that revolution. It was largely the American revolution which inspired this escape from serfdom. Indeed, the American revolution was all about escaping from the European model of servitude, with the American's insisting that even very moderate taxation without representation was a form of oppressive servitude. Incredibly, Barack Obama somehow believes that advocacy of a return to European style serfdom is a good way to celebrate the American Declaration of Independence from the oppression of English tyranny.

I especially liked this part of Obama's speech:

when I'm President, I will set a goal for all American middle and high school students to perform 50 hours of service a year, and for all college students to perform 100 hours of service a year. This means that by the time you graduate college, you'll have done 17 weeks of service. We'll reach this goal in several ways. At the middle and high school level, we'll make federal assistance conditional on school districts developing service programs, and give schools resources to offer new service opportunities.

Your children will be made serfs. But not well. The children of the rich and privileged like those of Barack and Michelle Obama who attend elite private schools will be exempt from the system of servitude Obama and the Lear Jet Left will construct for your children.

We are quickly constructing a 2 tier system with the upper middle class being corralled into a inferior government system of medicine, education, and servitude supported by massive taxes on the the middle class -- an a second tier where were the super rich live beyond the reach of government in a system of private medicine and private education supported by tax free income from bonds and income produced in sectors with massive tax rebates and tax loopholes accessible almost exclusively by corporate entities and the super rich.

And make no mistake about it. Barack Obama and almost ever other leftist Democrat in the Senate is a member of the government-free super rich tier, living outside the government schools and living off tax loophole income and tax free bonds.

To those who believe that this post is over-wrought, a poster at FreeRepublic comments:
The rotten communist regime I grow up under, did the same to me and all my fellow students during my High school years. We were forced for at least 1 month of labor each year to government owned potato and corn fields , then we had to catch up with our study. Also, we were forced to do digging for the foundations of new hotels in the mountains/resort areas. Obama and alike people are dangerous for this country!!

It appears that we will be adopting some of the policies of certain European countries if Obama is elected.
