Some scary stuff, just the fact of it being put forward. What would be need a Civilian national security force that's just as powerful and funded then own main military, especially when it'd also be separate from the national guard. Wish people would break out a history book. Could go on and on though so I'll stop there lol

Have you bothered to read what he actually means? Don't rely on these 20 second clips to actually get an understanding of things...

"National security" is more than just military organizations. National security also means improving local infrastructure, becoming more energy independent, volunteering for Peace Corps and Foreign Services, etc. But here's the full quote for you to read:

Obama, July 2, Colorado Springs, CO: [As] president I will expand AmeriCorps to 250,000 slots [from 75,000] and make that increased service a vehicle to meet national goals, like providing health care and education, saving our planet and restoring our standing in the world, so that citizens see their effort connected to a common purpose.

People of all ages, stations and skills will be asked to serve. Because when it comes to the challenges we face, the American people are not the problem – they are the answer. So we are going to send more college graduates to teach and mentor our young people. We'll call on Americans to join an energy corps, to conduct renewable energy and environmental clean-up projects in their neighborhoods all across the country.

We will enlist our veterans to find jobs and support for other vets, and to be there for our military families. And we're going to grow our Foreign Service, open consulates that have been shuttered and double the size of the Peace Corps by 2011 to renew our diplomacy. We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we've set.

We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded. We need to use technology to connect people to service. We'll expand USA Freedom Corps to create online networks where American can browse opportunities to volunteer. You'll be able to search by category, time commitment and skill sets. You'll be able to rate service opportunities, build service networks, and create your own service pages to track your hours and activities.

This will empower more Americans to craft their own service agenda and make their own change from the bottom up.

Of course there is far, far more to look from if you go into his actual policy proposals. There are over 20 agencies and services people can choose from ranging from Peace Corps to local environmental groups...
