  • I think he means more military personal guarding our homeland and not out over seas all of the time. ie:: protecting borders and such. I know we already have that but I think that he wants more because what we have is obviously weak since there are so many illegals here.

    so I agree and gladly vote for it

    That may be nice and fluffy to think but you must also couple that with his view of immigration and customs agents are like terrorists.

    How would other countries fund their free health care for all if we suddenly became all about protecting our own borders and told other countries to take care of themselves?lol

  • The rosy view of this idea would be lovely.

    But why would such an internal force - under orders from civilian gov't instead of from the military - need to be "just as strong and well-funded"?

    "Just as strong" - does this mean armed with weapons? or as strong in the number of members in it?
    Are we talking about ACORN-style community organizers like we saw storm the street outside AIG when the media and Congressmen were creating a tempest over some executives' bonuses?

    "Just as well-funded" - how honestly would such a huge fund be monitored? ACORN, for example, has a CRIMINAL track record when it comes to accounting for the $millions it has received in donations ...

    And most importantly, the only internal "strong force" I have learned about in history has been used to CONTROL CITIZENS - Soviets, Nazis, most recently the force hired by Iran's ayatollah to bludgeon and carry off protesters after the election.

  • Just who pray tell would this large and well armed force protect us against? You do realize a force of this magnitude can control a country? A force would be essential to the wholesale takeover of the country. I do not believe todays military will turn their guns on the American people. However, a few months of "mandatory" service in a corp could indoctrinate someone enough to get the job done. Especially if that someone was already part of the fawning mass...or perhaps a child of...
