Congresswoman Woolsey (D, CA) offered to introduce it in the 111th Congress, then retracted. Please contact your Congressional reps and ask them to become an original sponsor or cosponsor. The AWSC citizen-initiated congressional proposals could be, with you pushing your representatives, among the most significant legislation passed and implemented in decades. Imagine having 21 million Americans cost effectively doing good at home or abroad over the next 27 years.
In December 2009 Ralph Nader choose People's Lobby's book, "Ordinary People Doing the Extraordinary, The Story of Ed & Joyce Koupal's People's Lobby" as one of the Ten Best Books to Read for 2009. You can purchase the book from PeoplesLobby.us or learn more at http://peopleslobby.us/more-projects/books.
"This country runs on laws. If you want to change the country, write its laws," People's Lobby's founders Ed and Joyce Koupal used to say. If you want to enlighten public policy, involve millions of Americans in addressing public needs, prepare for climate weirding, etc., help make it happen. The AWSC addresses with people action many of our most pressing and costly needs.

SHARE Sunday, July 8, 2018 How the Peace Corps Conspired & Colluded to Deceive this Good Catholic Boy into Worshiping False Gods
I don't know what young kids pray to or for in temples or mosques. I know this Catholic kid prayed to a lot of statues to stay out of hell, avoid mortal sins -- like petting, and do well in baseball, football, and basketball. Growing up in suburban Parma, Ohio, where my dad had a union truck-driving job, those prayed-for goals seemed hellishly important.
Then the Peace Corps deceitfully led me to worship false gods.

Imagine if the super-rich voluntarily funded a National Service Corps of do-gooders who built health and welfare--thereby reducing stealth and warfare--at home and abroad. People's Lobby has the legislation. It needs you to fire up the imagination and vision of Congress to introduce & implement robust voluntary National Service via a voluntary nontraditional-funding mechanism (NTFM).

As climate change inconveniently sends rising tides to inundate Ft. Lauderdale and Miami on sunny days, a couple of industrious students from a bygone era reminisce and hope to devote some cuffed time to soothe an angered Mother Nature. Oh, for the days when her beaches were enlightened by sun-enriched, bikini-clad, bright art, rather than beleaguered by flooded beaches, streets, storms and dumbing-down Breitbart farks.

Can Putin and Trump think outside the box, as JFK did in birthing the Peace Corps? JFK proposed quickly building the cost effective and admired Peace Corps to one million, and thereby help build shining cities on the hills. War mentalities killed JFK'S dreams. Can Putin and Trump stun the world, reignite Kennedy's dreams, and help build those shiny cities by serving peacefully together?

Stupid costly wars continue escalating. Our soldiers are worn, but continue serving. Homeless, refugees, and earthly climatic migraines are burgeoning. Do we have enough visionary leaders to build another army to help turn these problems around? Enough visionary lawmakers to legislate a nontraditional funding mechanism that challenges the mega-rich and costs taxpayers nothing?
