The goal of a militia is to defend Americans against her enemies ... enemies bearing weapons intent on harming us and ours and to defend the plot of
land where we live, and help to protect our neighbors and friends, if at all possible. Hence the Second Amendment - the right to bear arms - in a
defensive, local capacity.
God bless the founding Fathers' wisdom for including this addendum!
My home is well defended because of it.
Local militias are necessary and very relevant; we need them.
Why? Should it get really ugly and a war we are fighting comes to our shores -
and even worse- comes inland, you'll be grateful the neighbor and his (her) 'militia buddies' are in front of your house defending you from the
There is no clause
or amendment in the Constitution that states any militia as any authority to defend the Constitution itself
enemies, foreign or domestic. It doesn't matter how many Bibles they swear this pledge upon. And most militias have members undergo a ceremonial
decree as if they are an elected official or their group is somehow a local branch of the U.S. military, formed to uphold the Constitution of the
United States. Imagining they have this authority is a narcissistic delusion, probably due to a lifetime of TV influence as their source of education
and imaginative stimulus.
If any organization publicly advocates an armed rebellion against the government (***Disclaimer - without probable cause!) they invite TPTB to swoop
down. How can anyone think they would be immune or above reproach by the enforcement agencies of the very land the claim to love if they threaten
violence? Violence as a first resort is the product of a weak mind.
Imagine there was a militia group that wanted those in power of the U.S. to fall, and there are; just search youtube to view their rhetoric. Oh, sure
they claim a constitutional right to overthrow the government and 'end tyranny'. But, have they answered the obvious question .... the question you
be asked yourself before you go headlong into the abyss ... what then?
***Disclaimer - If the Government attempts to dislodge you from your home without warrant or imposes Martial Law - that is cause enough, IMHO. Into
the breach, dear friends .....
But just because you don't like an individual holding an office of authority, or they pass an act that may curb the Constitution - No, you don't
draw weapons and march on 'City Hall'. You work within the system. Hey, if they manipulated it ... so too can you to manipulate it back. Unless, you
think they are smarter than you are.
I'll say it again, folks ...
Violence as a first resort is the product of a weak mind.
Although it is true the Obama administration is perpetuating the unconstitutional laws and acts enacted by the Bush regime, blaming him personally for
their continuation is a culmination of mislead beliefs that he has some totalitarian control or power to undo the damage done. He does not. And anyone
who claims he is NOT the duly elected President lives in some fantasy world (no doubt eternized by youtube) if they think a militia is the answer to
that misguided notion.
