    So if with this label how far can the government go to control education? This is a very scary thing.

    Doesn't quite compute. The quickest and cheapest way to get smart people who speak foreign languages is to import them and give them US citizenship.

    What the Armed Forces need is healthy cannon fodder who wants to kill people and break things.

    You missed one point that is germane to both your statements: "loyalty." In order for your concept to work, you must have unquestioning loyalty to our country, constitution, and principles. If you can't guarantee that, then your proposal is a "get rich quick scheme" (which we all know, get rich quick schemes seldom get anyone rich quickly).

    So you have to take the opposite route: Indoctrinate them from an early age, and continue to indoctrinate them throughout their lives.

    On the other hand, half the people on BB question the loyalty of half the natural born voters.
