    By definition, the security of a free State is a States' right. Persons are free to the extent they are willing to become US citizens.

    You think a lot of things, most of them arbitrary and less than praiseworthy.
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    Killing oppressors is indeed praiseworthy and I would assist him in his cause. Though I suppose since he is 54 and wouldn't be called up he would be joining in my cause instead since I would still qualify and surely be drafted.

    you just don't get it-it was about us being able to keep and bear arms because a standing army is a necessary evil. It in NO WAY empowers the federal government to create an army or draft people and the several states already had the power to create state militias.

    I believe we may be better off if our Judicature establishes a culture of militia service from the bench instead of any perceived legislation from the bench in modern times; would we be worse off if the Militia of the United States were to become more well regulated by building aqueducts and roads, in their spare time.

    I tend to be less than enamored with government and worship big brother as quickly as you do apparently.

    I really don't care if statists don't find my comments praiseworthy

    I believe we should not have to care about what is not necessary to the security of a free State; should that exigency arise.

    You're saying you have the moral right to kill people, based on the social organization you think you deserve (whether you put effort into creating it or not), rather than the one you share with others in reality, the one you've always had and lived your life in. The obligations don't exist because they're not the ones you think you should have.

    Not everyone has the luxury of that kind of self-importance.

    A problem that you would be creating for me and if I had the ability I would hold you accountable for. I might not be willing to fight in your causes, but don't mistake that as unwillingness to fight and kill.
    You wouldn't have had the problem at all if you hadn't made free use of the safety and economic assurance provided by the collective might of the body politic. You might kill me, but there is no doubt I was justified in driving you away.
