Not the original poster, but I think ziggy's answers were completely defensible in relation to the question you asked. Your question was:

Would you care to explain when this period of "compulsory work" occurred in US history?

You didn't say that the type of "compulsory work" had to be able to occur again - you just asked when the period was.

Trying to say Your suggestions are about as relevant as the Gold Standard & the Poll Tax; they happened in US history but WILL NOT reoccur by "back sliding" is not refuting ziggy's answers to the question that was asked. ziggy's answers were completely relevant to the question that was asked.
