    I know, that's now what you wanted to hear.

    I know you're joking - but learning the history of this particular branch is fascinating

    The US air force is not mentioned in the US constitution though now is it. Nor is Nasa

    A lot of things aren't that are accepted under what is detailed out - granted powers and rights by proxy.

    But because the Air Force serves as an extension of the military it's all the same thing, with just a different mission it's been assigned to see to. . . it's all part of the military in the end.

    Though, with Nasa, you have more of a point. . .so, if you think it's Unconstitutional - then take it to the Supreme Court and have it challenged That's well within your right as a citizen.

    The enumerated powers lists only land and naval forces.

    So you're suggesting that we shouldn't be able to fly in the sky to protect our land?

    Isn't Air considered naval in the first place?

    Just because airplanes are a new technology that fly through the air surely does not forbid their use by the military. All services have them.

    As for a specific sentence in the Constitution that mentions Air Force, there of course isn't one, but the Necessary and Proper Clause in the Constitution could possibly be used to justify the Air Force.

    Article 1, Section 8 states:

    "To make all laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into execution the foregoing powers, and all other powers vested by this Constitution in the government of the United States, or in any department or officer thereof."

    Yeah, agreed. It's funny how they can blame socialists even though there is a grand total of 1 (one) socialists in our entire elected government.

    No, that is most definitely not what I'm suggesting. I use it as an example to point out that extremely strict interpretation of the enumerated powers doesn't really work.
