Since before the Revolution, we've had a "Civilian National Security Force" that was equally matched to the U.S. military establishment, and was deliberately "opposed to the military"; it was called "the militia".
Civilians trained in the use of arms for the benefit of repelling invasions and suppressing rebellions in the homeland, without the need of the state-run military to be deployed on our soil.
This principle of opposing wings of our American military defense system was purposely dismantled by the Congress in the early years of the 20th century, and was replaced by the "National Guard", a mere shadow of the former militia and a concept never imagined by the Founders.
Now Obama wishes to enlist young men and women into yet another insidious attempt to overthrow the concept of a civilian military; an attempt to destroy and reverse what was imagined by Thomas Jefferson when he said, "Every citizen should be a soldier."
If Obama wished to bring back the citizen militia as intended by the Founders, I would thank him. However, he wishes to corral the strongest backs and the brightest minds into service of the state, service that will be used as one more tool for the construction of a socialist America.
I only hope that he doesn't know what he is doing to our country.
