Militia Needs Everything the Standing Military Has
Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – “The Virginia militia, the South Carolina militia, the Georgia militia, the North Carolina militia, the Tennessee volunteers, they were already armed. They were armed as militiamen and they were armed as if they were an army that could be called upon and called into service. That’s how they were able to do it. Now, of course, once the war broke out, obviously they would have to compete with the Union Army, so they would have to then upgrade their armaments.” Check out today’s transcript for the rest…

Mike: I do recall saying, when we were talking about the Second Amendment on Friday last, and the incorporation of the Second Amendment, and people misunderstanding the militia clauses in the Second Amendment and why those clauses were important, it was because it was important to the founding generation that if you were going to have a militia and you were going to have a central government at the same time, militias in the states, the central government having the ability to call the militias together to make one army, that the point of the Second Amendment was so that the militia would be equally armed. For the clowns that say, [mocking] “What, do you want a Howitzer?” well, if the U.S. Army has one, yeah. The Louisiana National Guard ought to have a Howitzer, you’re damn right. That’s the whole point so that you’re never ordered — it’s almost like mutually-assured destruction, harkening back to the days of the Cold War — you’re never ordered to go invade a state because they have inferior armaments.
Has anyone wondered about this? How was it that the federal cavalry and that the Union Army, which was, by their own admission, the army of the United States, how was it that the Southern, the Confederacy and the Confederate Army were able to, in a matter of weeks — that’s all they had to put an army together to try to defend Virginia from Meade’s army or McClellan’s army, ordered by Lincoln, to go put down the Southern Confederacy. How were they able to do that? Has anyone ever thought about that? I have. It’s because they were already armed. The Virginia militia, the South Carolina militia, the Georgia militia, the North Carolina militia, the Tennessee volunteers, they were already armed. They were armed as militiamen and they were armed as if they were an army that could be called upon and called into service. That’s how they were able to do it. Now, of course, once the war broke out, obviously they would have to compete with the Union Army, so they would have to then upgrade their armaments.
That’s how and why the army of Virginia was prepared to try and stop the federal army in the Valley Campaign led by Stonewall Jackson and at the various battles of Fredericksburg. If you were to say that today, the Southern Poverty Law Center would call you a racist.

Even in times of economic stability it is sound practice to live within one’s income and avoid unnecessary debt. Such practice is doubly sound in times like these. Each of us should make every effort to become economically independent, at least within the family unit. Avoid looking to
government for handouts or future security. Again, this is not only good practice in normal times, but especially important today. A government which is unable to pay its own bills can hardly be depended upon to pay yours.

Finally, when the going gets rough, we mustn’t rush to Washington and ask Big Brother to take care of us through price controls, rent controls, guaranteed jobs and wages. Any government powerful enough to give the people all that they want is also powerful enough to take from the people all that they have. And it is even possible that some of the government manipulators who have brought us into this economic crisis are hoping that, in panic, we, the American people, literally will plead with them to take our liberties in exchange for the false promise of “security.” As Alexander Hamilton warned almost 200 years ago: “Nothing is more common than for a free people, in times of heat and violence, to gratify momentary passions by letting into the government principles and precedents which afterward prove fatal to themselves.”
