This video is almost 15 minutes long, but it is well worth spending the time to hear Jim DeMint discuss S 277; the National Service Act. He explains why volunteer programs work in private society, but do not work well under government control. He talks about Americans dependence on the government. Over half of Americans are now dependent on the government according to Senator DeMint. This program(if enacted) will become the 14th largest employer in the US. Based on current government bureaucratic inefficiency, we can not expect this program to be well managed or effective. Do we really want more government involvement in our lives?
