Yes, but expand it beyond the scope of the CCC, as others have mentioned. National Service (make it a mandatory patriotic duty) for everyone on his or her 18th birthday to participate in re-building and strengthening the nation in whatever way their skills can be used. As mentioned, there are many areas that need work. This just might go a long way toward erasing some of the division in the country. When people actually participate in the health of the nation, they become invested in it, allowing them to feel connected to the process of governance. Who knows, maybe a decent amount of people might actually come out to vote! It is not, as one other commentor said, a socialist chicken-in-every-pot program. What is socialistic about doing some real and constructive work for the nation you live in? There would be no exemptions, no matter who your daddy is or how many heel spurs you have. People with various types of disabilities do productive work every day. Everyone can do something.
