Militias are not in favor of having another revolution in America. We are for restoring a literal interpretation of the United States Constitution as the founding fathers intended with a strong emphasis on the bill of rights, states rights, and a limited federal government. Militias are not illegal. Militias are not anti-government. Militias are authorized by the US Constitution.

In the letter, state Democrats called the militias “lawless” and accused them of perpetuating “the stigma that the border is a war zone.”
Perhaps the reason there is a stigma about the border being a war zone is because it is one. Violent gang members and drug cartels have attacked Border Patrol agents, not to mention the Mexican military helicopter that opened fire on Americans, making the border a very unsafe place to be.
Truth be told, the militia shouldn’t be down there, because it’s the president’s job to provide all of the proper resources needed to secure the border. Unfortunately, since he refuses to do his job, these individuals are filling in the gap.
Attorney General Greg Abbott shrugged the letter off calling it a “partisan political stunt” and went on to say that rather than whining about the militia, they “should work with their Republican colleagues to secure federal funding for the state’s border security efforts.”
Rick Perry: “It’s Time for Us to Start a Little Rebellion”
When 70 percent of American citizens support voter identification laws but the president’s attorney general sues states to overturn them, something just isn’t right.
When the people’s government fails to respond to the people, Rick Perry says he has the answer, according to Townhall.
“Jefferson was right when he said a little rebellion now and then is a good thing,” the Texas Republican said
The American Militia in Defense of the State
With the ratification of the Constitution, there was a greater consolidation of the collective into a Union. It also imposed upon that Union an obligation to protect each State against invasion, first, within the Powers of the Congress:
Article I, § 8, clause 15– The Congress shall have the Power… To provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions.
Secondly, a guarantee (the only guarantee in the Constitution), with the mandatory “shall”:
Article IV, § 4– The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence.
It is apparent, then, that protection from invasion warrants the attention, and cooperation, of the federal government. However, we must consider whether the States lost their right to repel invasion, absent the federal government fulfilling their oblation and guarantee. This, then, leads us to the 10th Amendment:
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
Congress was given the Power, though nothing makes that Power exclusive. If it had been exclusive, surely a prohibition against the state protecting its borders would have been written as a prohibition in Article I, Section 10.
Well, that all makes sense; however, can that right to protect a State’s borders be affirmed by example? Answer: Most assuredly. Though the incidents being used to demonstrate this “Right of the State” to protect its borders were from the early part of the 19th Century, there have been no changes to the Constitution that would eliminate that right.
The Constitutional Militia
Amendment II United States Constitution
“A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”
“All laws which are repugnant to the Constitution are null and void.” Marbury vs. Madison 5 US (2 Cranch) 137, 174, 176, (1803)
The United States Constitution is the supreme law of the land.
Militias are not in favor of having another revolution in America. We are for restoring a literal interpretation of the United States Constitution as the founding fathers intended with a strong emphasis on the bill of rights, states rights, and a limited federal government. Militias are not illegal. Militias are not anti-government. Militias are authorized by the US Constitution. And DO LEGALLY EXIST!!!
No Militia, Means More Intrusive Law Enforcement
Our Framers didn’t envision a free state with the current level of government control.
Professional police not having been invented, the militia was the primary tool for enforcing the law in circumstances that went beyond the reach of the town constable, and it was also the primary source of defense against invasions and insurrection.
Calling out the militia thus meant calling out ordinary citizens, trained in military tactics (that’s the “well-regulated” part), bearing their own arms. The Framers — who had a deep and abiding fear of professional standing armies because of abuses by the British Crown — thought this safer. A professional standing army could turn on the people, placing its loyalty with its paymasters rather than with those it was supposed to protect. The militia, on the other hand, couldn’t betray the people because it was the people.
