    Currently, our military is in the hands of one federal government but why can't each state develop their own military along with the federal government? This would ensure that when we have complete pussies in office, like we have now, that any state can build their own F-22s if they want to and any other military thing they want.

    It might create a two prong method of defense. One is the federal government military and if that is killed off each state can then put up its own arms for defense.

    Oh yes, this is a great fucking idea. Because we ALL know just how much money the states already have in surplus to support their very own militaries. Not to mention an aircraft that costs $146M EACH! What a fucking moron.

    Each state already has a national guard, which is organized and under the direct control of the governor of each state. The national guard is supported by supplies from the federal government, and the federal government can borrow national guard troops by making requests to the governor of the state.
    The citizen's militias in each state(yes they are there) are funded and organized by private citizens. They are not under the direct control of the state government, but are loaned to them upon request.
    The citizens militia here lends a hand when someone is lost, or our local sheriff needs help in some way.

    The local branch of the citizens militia here has two helicopters and two airplanes, with 2 more of each on the way this year. They have several military vehicles, and recently sent two to other militias in Missouri and in arkansas.

    I officially nominate the OP's post for stupidest post of 2010. I have a feeling it will be tough to top the OP.
