Here is a copy, taken from the National Government’s Website quoting the Constitution, Article 4, Section 4, which I pasted below:
The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence.
This is a very simple statement:
1. It states that our Federal Government shall guarantee to EVERY STATE in this Union the right to a REPUBLICAN form of government; not a Democratic form of government, not a Socialist form of government, a REPUBLICAN FORM OF GOVERNMENT, as written in our Constitution! A Republican form of government does not mean like the “Republican Party”, it means that each, and every state shall have the right to run under its own laws and principles, to manufacture and sell as it wishes, as long as it does not try to force its ideals upon the other states! It also means that every state has the right to do business with other states in whatever manner is agreeable between them! And it doesn’t state that the Federal Government will allow them to act as they wish, it states that the UNITED STATES SHALL GUARANTEE IT!
2. Then it states that the Federal Government “SHALL PROTECT EACH OF THEM AGAINST INVASION”; whenever I write a rant about illegals in the US, many out there think I am simply a hater, but they are so wrong; I hold nothing against any person who crosses our borders looking for work, trying to find a way to support their families, I would do the same. But there are ways in which the illegals could cross our borders legally, such as work permits, but the illegals don’t use them, they choose the easy way out! That said; my problem is with our National Legislators who have totally failed, for a very long time, to ensure that our borders are protected from invasions of any kind! They have all contradicted their Oaths of Office by allowing our borders to be left wide open, and they do it because they profit off of it! THEY ACCEPT MONEY TO VIOLATE THEIR OATHS! THAT IS A CRIME AGAINST THE CONSTITUTION AND NO ONE STANDS AGAINST THEM! Any nation that leaves its borders open, sets itself up for destruction from the inside out! And the primary responsibility for our nation’s safety rests in the hands of those who get paid to ignore it! Our problem with illegals in our country is not the fault of the illegals, it is the fault of those Members of Congress who swore an oath “TO PROTECT AND DEFEND THE UNITED STATES AGAINST ALL ENEMIES, FOREIGN, AND DOMESTIC”! They are in no danger if things go wrong by actions of illegals, because they live in the most protected city in our country! So they don’t have to worry as the citizens do! Our Members of Congress, on both sides of the fence, that do not fight for the protection of our borders are CRIMINALS, and they should be forced to pay for their crimes!
3. “AND, ON APPLICATION OF THE LEGISLATURE, OR THE EXECUTIVE ( WHEN THE LEGISLATURE CANNOT BE CONVENED ) AGAINST DOMESTIC VIOLENCE”! This gives the Federal Government the right to use force, when necessary, to end any form of domestic violence, especially that caused by groups like the Drug Lords who are threatening our southern border! When a Border Patrol Officer is shot and killed, when a civilian is murdered, raped, or mutilated, when there are signs that any foreign military force has entered our country with the intent to cause harm, our Federal Government is supposed to send troops to end the problem, immediately! Instead; we send all of our troops overseas to “assist” other nations, and we see so many members of our military die to defend peoples of other nations who will forget about them when they are gone! It has been reported, even on Broadcast TV, that Mexican Drug Lords’ military units have invaded Arizona to the point that there are signs ON OUR HIGHWAYS warning people not to drive through those areas! How bad does this have to get before we decide to stand up for our rights? Will it take the Drug Lord’s military forces attacking Tucson, Arizona before we think it’s bad enough!
I copied the Article from the Constitution: It is there, plain and simple, what more do you need to know? We are facing many dangers in our country today, but the greatest danger is the most ignored! Make your voice heard: we need our borders protected more than we need to protect some foreign nation’ s borders! We need to let the young men and women of our military serve where they can do the most to protect our nation! If any of the new Republican candidates “dance around” this issue, we don’t need them! We need someone who will take the issue of our border safety with some Constitutional understanding, who will stand up for the people’s’ right to safety in our own country FIRST! America First, Americans First!
STAND UP AMERICANS, OR LOSE AMERICA!
