World Net Daily has published a story regarding Obama’s plan to “require” students to serve their community in middle and high school. Creating a youth corp seems to be one of his great ideas to get everyone involved to “serve” their nation to preserve the “American dream”.

Perhaps there is reason to be concerned about this, perhaps not. But the key word here is “required”. The 12th amendment to the constitution states:
