FK – British troops were known as ‘regulars’ because of the way they were trained to march. Thus well regulated meant ‘well-trained.’
So ‘well-regulated’ militia means they get their fat asses off the couch and get out there and learn the skills, tactics, overall strategies of combat.
Good luck getting the average ‘conservative’ or ‘libertarian’ to develop the backbone or gonads to do that. They can’t even publicly state what must happen if the commie trash or some other statist force ever orders us to ‘turn them in.’
FK – Sorry, but they wouldn’t be able to quit and go home. We have millions in this country that prefer slavery to liberty and will happily kill to enforce that preference. There will always be Negans.
Every time your commie ‘friends’ vote they vote to kill you.
The problem really is not a standing military but the lack of courage and resolve among those who claim they want to live free. Getting them to even publicly state what will be required to fix this mess if it can be fixed much less actually prepare for it is akin to looking for claws on sheep.
If we had the govt. we should have we’d still need a standing military of some sort. Washington struggled all through the revolution to create a professional army. When they utilized the militia they never knew if they would perform well as they sometimes did or run screaming like little girls. Indeed ‘professional trained soldiers and Marines’ are capable of such.
Technology is such today that without it I doubt we could hold this continent many more generations without it and we may not anyway. We are a nation ripe for invasion or destruction from within, which is well advanced.
A big bloody mess is coming, one way or another. Maybe not in my existence here but it will come. The govt.s are broke. When they are forced to acknowledge this much will change.
What we so desperately need is a re-orientation of values. They should be held to their oaths to protect the Bill of Rights at the threat of their very lives.
Every cop and soldier, Marine, airman, sailor, coast guardsmen should be required to memorize them before being allowed to exercise any authority over anyone or their property.
It should be ruled not only legal but highly necessary to kill superior officers who issue orders to the contrary. They should be held to the same standard when issued similar orders by their civilian superiors.
If Trump wants to ‘make amerika great again’ he and all his followers must realize we can’t be great unless we are free otherwise our ‘greatness’ is equal to any Reich or reign or soviet or bloody conqueror of the past.
BRING THEM HOME and let them HUNT our real ENEMIES!
We should’ve kept our troops home from Vietnam and Korea and had them kill the commies here first. We need to bring them home now.
If the military were fighting for our freedom they’d all be here.
The empire’s military hasn’t fought a war for Liberty since 1865 and the bad guys won that one.
Such advocacy journalism based on agenda “science” is not surprising, and I say this from personal experience. Case in point was a Slate piece in which a Harvard “ethicist,” in true “progressive”/Opposite Day fashion, posted an interview with an anti-gun “researcher” that flat-out lied about me putting out a “Wanted” poster on him, and tied that in with claimed, but unsubstantiated, threats on his life. And being part of the “medical” establishment, the lie was compounded to put agenda over truth in the prominent journal, “Nature.”
It’s this nexus between supposed “scientific” literature and the agenda-promoting “free press” from which such memes are born and seeded, so that ignorant former liberal arts majors who now consider themselves to be crusading journalists, can be manipulated into spreading ideological manure.
FK – My standard answer to such, since I and many others knew years ago what the newswhores were and are what will have to be done to them:
Millions will dig the ditch they are told to dig then wet their pants when the machine gun bolts slam home and die stupidly wondering “How did this happen to me?” The tiny minority will have to do what will be required.
It’s time to stop arguing over the culture war. It’s time to stop hunkering down for the apocalypse. It’s time to stop waiting to get beamed up. It’s time to start thinking Normandy.
If you sit home waiting your turn you deserve to have your gun taken from your cold dead hands.
The Founders didn’t wait for the Brits to knock down their doors. They gathered at the green and stood up like men and they killed government employees all the way back to Boston.
What will you do when it’s time to hunt NWO hacks, republicrats and commies(“Liberals” and ‘progressives’)?
