The Moron Parade Marches On

PARIS (AP) — If President Nicolas Sarkozy's conservatives have their way, French teenagers will one day swear their allegiance to the defense of France — a sort of muscular French take on the U.S. Pledge of Allegiance.

Fifteen years after France ended obligatory military service, Sarkozy's UMP party wants to tighten the binds between the nation and its military by requiring rising 18-year-olds to declare "allegiance to the arms" of France.

If allegiance is required.. then it's not really allegiance, is it? A nation should be worthy of its people's allegiance, not demand it.

That concept makes right wingers insane.
