    States should raise citizen militias on a volunteer no pay basis and let them do the job that the president won't allow the NG to do. Thousands would sign up. The state power of the guard has been essentially usurped by the federal government anyway just like everything else.

    G.W. Bush did almost the exact same thing. When are Americans gonna' wake up and see the the Gubamint cares not a wit about them?

    Businesses want illegal alien slave labor and the politicians want to legalize them to get their votes.

    The average Americans' opinion doesn't mean shit to them.

    In 2006 the National Guard had authority to detain illegal aliens who they came across while on patrol. So while I agree that Bush had no more intention of stopping the flow of illegal aliens than Obama does, his token effort was greater than Obama's.

    Psst Jillian - you do realize that armed national guard members have been running around our country since day one don't you?

    and by the way, an armed US National Guard member is likely to have received 10X the training on things like weapon control and the like that a border patrol agent has received, so unless you advocate getting rid of border patrol, which maybe you do?, I don't see where you are coming from.

    It is when the Governor deploys them during a state emergency. There is no reason Brewer can't deploy her NG to help fight drug trafficking.

    I've decided to neg you each time you lie about me...fair warning.

    Not as insane as placing them in harm's way with armed drug runners about. Unfortunately, Mexico has deteriorated into a lawless frontier. A reasonable person would protect themselves against this problem.

    The Posse Comitatus Act is a United States federal law (18 U.S.C. ยง 1385) passed on June 18, 1878, after the end of Reconstruction, with the intention (in concert with the Insurrection Act of 1807) of substantially limiting the powers of the federal government to use the military for law enforcement.

    Isn't it funny, the freak'n anti government RW Fringe so scared of big gubmint (isn't that how the tea party fringers refer to the Federal Government?) now want Federalized Troops to protect our boarders?

    Remember Kent State! Next time it could be your child, parent or spouse.

    Of course the whinning above is simply another red herring planted in their simple little minds by the power elite who control fringers; one more examples of the Republican propaganda machine employing any means necessary to regain the power and control they had during the days they held power.
