By The People

There are fundamental flaws in how American government operates today,
contrary to the Constitution and the vision of a representative republican form of governance.
I intend doing something about it: by educating and informing others who
are not even aware of the dangers.

Who Were The Minutemen?

In the early days of America as colonies, they were for the most part left to their own devices and defenses. It was therefore necessary that all men kept and bore arms, to protect that which they labored to build and own.  It was from this need for a common defense among all the people, that agreements were made to provide able-bodied men to take up arms when an alarm was sounded.

It became necessary then to make formal agreements of association to establish a militia of the people, that is a group of fighting men forming the people's civilian army. They were not an army under the control of a central government, rather they were ordinary men upon who duty deemed it necessary to train and be ready to come to the defense of their fellow colonists.

When the British stopped supplying gunpowder the colonist had  to make their own. When the British came to confiscate their arms, the colonists rebelled. There were many other things that were done to the colonists by the Crown, but as loyal subjects, they filed their grievances in the proper manner, and witnessed themselves being treated as less than the subjects in Great Britain were treated. But it was the attempts to take their arms that finally was the last straw or the "shot heard 'round the world"!

So who were the 'Minutemen' and what did they do to earn such a name for themselves? According to American Revolutionary War history they were a select group of well-prepared militiamen, who were so named because of  their rapid response to a call-to-arms when they were needed to defend against an enemy attack. Today they would be the Rapid Deployment Forces of an elite military. The Continental Army called up these minutemen for rapid response to British attacks. 

So to recap and put it as plain and simple as can be, I am no longer 'duty-bound' to join a militia as I have reached past the age of sixty, however my patriotism and sense of responsibility will keep me 'in the fight' to restore the Republic that has been taken from us all.

In light of the fact that we are being invaded on our southern border, with several reports of Mexican troops crossing and firing upon Americans, that surely looks like an act war, declared or not. Although the federal government is constitutional bound to protect the borders from invasion, they have not only ignored the duty, that are aiding and abetting the invasion!

There have been calls to arm and deploy the militias, to defend the border states from this invasion, but not be the governors of those states. The Governor of Texas has been complaining about the lack of federal support and has asked militias NOT to intervene as the Texas Department of Public Safety will respond. The problem is, they are grossly over-matched for the task.

It will then fall upon the sheriffs of those border counties to call forth the militia, and deputized them to defend the land. It is the duty of We the People to respond to that call, and be prepared to become part of the forces under orders of those officers assigned to lead.

The Rise of the Militia: The People's (Civilian) Army

We are witnessing what may be a turning point in this nation's history. It will fall upon the will of the People whether or not the Republic will be restored or  the Republic remains a corporate entity, the UNITED STATES.

The privately-owned major media is focused on any conflict in the Middle East, while thousands of foreigners are illegally streaming across our southern border, and the media reports nothing while ICE buses illegally aliens to different parts of the country and releases them. But there is another more telling story that is not being reported.

The governors of Arizona and Texas have not formally called forth the constitutional Militias of the States. The Citizen Soldier is the primary constitutional defense of a State's freedom and rights and many have volunteered to defend these States. While Americans are being killed, by members of Mexican drug cartels and coyotes, neither governor has taken action.

A corruption of the rule of law and tyrannical actions by those chosen to protect and serve the People cannot be tolerated or liberty is lost.  There is no 'moderate' solution to radical oppression of the rights of the People. Ultimately, it is not only the right, but it is the duty of the People to defend those rights. Who else but YOU is responsible for your life and property? Who else but you is responsible to protect your family? It is NOT the responsibility of the UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT.

There are many books and essays written about the history of militias in America. That history is no longer taught in public schools, because US GOVERNMENT propaganda has made militia equivalent to 'militant' and that is made to look like extremist, which in turn equates to terrorist. Strange how the words are twisted to mean something entirely different than what they meant when they were written into the Constitution of the united States of America in 1787.

The Constitution prohibits standing armies in times of peace and yet by using words, they circumvent the law. Does a 'War on Poverty' constitute a need for armed troops? How about a 'War on Drugs'? Okay, then what about the "War on Terror'? It is my understanding of the definitions of the terms and the preciseness of the words chosen, that WAR is DECLARED by an act of CONGRESS against another nation or group of nations who threaten the sovereignty of the People and the lands of the States.

The States along the U.S./Mexican border are being invaded. In some cases we have learned, drug cartels have established their control over the border, and in other reports, Mexican Federales having crossed the border, fired  weapons, although whether they were firing upon other Mexicans or Americans is unclear.

What is clear to me at least, is the media focus has been on young children coming to America to flee their nations in Central America. Why isn't ICE/INS turning these foreigners back? Why is the Border Patrol babysitting and being nursemaids to all these illegal immigrants Mexico helping them? Why are we always the ones who are extending charity?

We are a nation in debt. We have to deal with that and no other nation will help us. We need to help Texas and Arizona People to secure their borders with Mexico. Any and all businesses that can send materials to accomplish the goal must step up and do so.

We cannot depend on any level of government to do the right thing, so it falls to the People of the Republic to do the job!

The Fall of a Nation

America is under attack and there are no defenses being provided by our government. In fact, the government is bringing the invasion to us by training and arming foreigners. Reports from anonymous Border Patrol agents indicate that among those who are invading our nation, are Islamic Jihadists who are being trained by DHS as 'soldiers' in case of 'civil unrest' in US cities. In other words, they will have no problem killing American civilians, including women and children. They are getting fed and clothed, and they are being sheltered and trained to kill Americans. Oh yes! This is happening right now while your attention is being drawn to what is going on in the Middle East and in Eastern Europe.

Thousands of lives and over a $1,000,000,000,000 US are lost. Tens of thousands more US troops are maimed by the atrocities of terrorists claiming to represent the 'Religion of Peace.' And like Nero who fiddled while Rome burned, the person occupying the White House is campaigning and golfing while Baghdad is about to fall. And this just in:  The ISIS terrorists found chemical weapons belonging to the Iraqi Army and manufactured no doubt in the United States.  The very same weapons that for years, the Democrats in Washington have denied existed.

The border with Mexico is now controlled by the Mexican drug lords, while U.S. Border Patrol Agents have been reassigned to babysitting and nursemaid duties. And instead of doing their constitutional duty to call up the citizen soldiers to defend their states, the Governors of Arizona and Texas are doing nothing. Calls are going out for militia support by the communities being threatened, and some unconfirmed reports of American casualties have been coming forth as well.

Congress has not protected the People who elected them and instead are looking at how to help Afghanistan and Iraq. Directly negotiating with terrorists and exchanging five high-ranking Taliban 'generals' for one deserter and possible enemy collaborator, arming terrorists with American weapons to overthrow the governments of Egypt. Libya, and now Iraq, while training illegal immigrants on US soil to fight us. And now bringing back a Libyan national who claims no direct responsibility for the American live lost nor any remorse, to the States for criminal prosecution instead of being tried as an enemy combatant in a military court. He is a terrorist just like the ones exchanged for the deserter Bowe Bergdahl.

Impeachment was the answer for merely breaking the law, but Congress has not acted. Indictments need to be served to many members of this criminal regime yet Congress does nothing. I cannot understand why the Republican led House of Representatives has not acted on Articles of Impeachment for high crimes and misdemeanors. I have heard an excuse making the rounds claiming that it is an exercise in futility so long as Harry Reid and the Democrats control the Senate. That is not a valid reason to not live up to your oaths of office and do the right thing under the Constitution. Unless you have broken that oath and no longer represent We the People.

As was emphatically stated in the Declaration of Independence two hundred and thirty eight years ago,

 "Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness."

It seems irrefutable that our government no longer represents the will of the People and definitely is operating without the consent of the governed who are We the People.

Because of the immediate danger of this unabated invasion, we must act now to secure the border ourselves and deal with restoring the constitutional republic once we can save our lands from invasion.
