    While I might be in favor of a 'universal service' component to US citizenship, it should not be required to be military, and should pay a living wage.  Heavens know we've got a ton of infrastructure work that needs done.  What if you could be guaranteed decent paying work for 2-4 years after high school?  Sounds like a win-win to me. You get job training and skills, the country gets long-neglected work done.

    You want more people up in arms over warmongering?  Require up-front, separated out progressive war taxes.  Tell the American public, including corporations the proposed wars are going to cost them 5% of their income for as long as they last, and see how loud and how quick the screaming against war is.
