Who are the militia?

“Who are the militia? Are they not ourselves? Is it feared, then, that we shall turn our arms each man against his own bosom? Congress shall have no power to disarm the militia. Their swords, and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birthright of an American … The unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state governments, but where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the People.” — Tench Coxe, 1788. 

Tench Coxe – Wikipedia  Tench Coxe (May 22, 1755 – July 17, 1824) was an American political economist and a delegate for Pennsylvania to the Continental Congress in 1788–1789.

  1. Its like any other right in this country

    you gotta be willing to fight and or die for it

    I really dont think they understand the hell they are laying for themselves

    1. “Men trained in arms from their infancy, and animated by the love of liberty, will afford neither a cheap or easy conquest.”
      — From the Declaration of the Continental Congress, July 1775

      Great quote posted by galen yesterday I thought was quite appropriate.

  2. A wise man said, “it’s only yours if you can keep it.”

    If someone wants to take your air. Do you not fight and defend and keep?
    If someone wants your life, do you not fight and defend and keep it?
    If someone wants your wealth. Do you not fight and defend and keep it?
    If someone wants your jello and his friend tried to take your cookie yesterday and tomorrow him and all his friends may think you got a perty mouth.
    Do you not fight and defend and keep your mouth, jello, cookie, wealth, life and air?


  3. We live in a country where trained pigs are allowed to act on impulse

    but Un-trained average people are expected to remain calm and follow orders from some psychopath aiming a gun at your head

  4. The first time I heard Henry read this Tench Coxe quote, many years ago, it was a most empowering moment for me. I did indeed see this as my ‘birthright’: to be as equipped as ANY other to defend myself and all that I cherish, and even to be MORE equipped. And in that moment I knew, I am the militia!! I, along with all others committed to self-determinism and freedom. Tench must have known that many see the control-machine as insurmountable, huge, overbearing, so he wrote those words to level the playing field, level it and then actually give an advantage to the people. What a great gift he left.


  5. Warning to the criminal psycho elites…you may think you are “legion” and you are “many” but you are only in your own minds controlled by Satan, THE arch-deceiver, for Satan’s agenda, which has allowed you to have all the mammon and bogus power you want. Well, the true legion of We the People may not be many at this time, but this legion whom will defend our bill of rights is growing, while Satan via his minions the syn of sat gnaws on your bones and minds, and, if you don’t repent, will do so. Forever. Some Dude once said it…weeping and gnashing of teeth, in the outer darkness.
