Civil unrest and martial law in the US

Several of you have privately pointed me to this story from last week in Army Times, which reports on the new, permanent mission of the 3rd Infantry Division's 1st Brigade Combat team. It's not Iraq; it's within the United States....

...The 1st BCT's soldiers also will learn how to use "the first ever nonlethal package that the Army has fielded," 1st BCT commander Col. Roger Cloutier said, referring to crowd and traffic control equipment and nonlethal weapons designed to subdue unruly or dangerous individuals without killing them.

The package is for use only in war-zone operations, not for any domestic purpose.

Oh, of course not (he says, nervously). More:

"I can't think of a more noble mission than this," said Cloutier, who took command in July. "We've been all over the world during this time of conflict, but now our mission is to take care of citizens at home ... and depending on where an event occurred, you're going home to take care of your home town, your loved ones."

I mean to cast no aspersions on this commander, but that language is, frankly, Orwellian. The reader who first tipped me off to this story caught a reference to it in The American Conservative, which last year ran a remarkable piece about how the legal barriers preventing the deployment of US soldiers domestically was eroding. Excerpt...


My comment:

Well, if we have repealed back to 1787, then why are we still deploying this Brigade and why has the Homeland Security listed teaparty protesters as terrorists as well as veterans?
The bottom line is We the People and our States have allowed the Federal Government to become a State if it's own, over all States, with the tyrannical usurpation of the Constitution and State Sovereignty.  In 1913, it started with the income tax and then with expansion by Roosevelt in the Great Deal, then by Johnson with the Great Society.  Now we have an open coup by communism through Obama. 
We are still at the point of using our vote rather then the sword.  But if we abrogate our responsibility to protect of liberty and freedom within the Constitution in this 2010 election, God help us now.  There is a new tool now available for pruning candidates called 'The Independence Caucus .  They have a Vetting questionnaire that weeds out unconstitutional candidates and promotes thows who will put this Nation back on the straight and narrow of the Constitution.  Mind you, the process will take years to unfold the tyrannical oligarchy of the USA, but it can be done, peacefully, if we but get involved and vote for Re-Founding this Nation. 
One other step needs immediate attention, that being our tax structure.  Our current tax system is production based meaning the cost of taxation is built into the price of product making free trade impossible.  The plan removes a tax from paychecks and others taking it out of production and putting it on consumption, making for a fair tax method in which the rich, hiding behind lobbyist loopholes and offshore accts, illegals and criminals will all pay their share. 
With the Constitution being adhered to and our manufacturing coming back to the USA, we will once again prosper.  Of course it will also require a moral awaking like Governor Huckabee's Constitutional Amendments defining life to begin at conception and for Traditional marriage be the law, the re-inventing of the cast system, which in reality is the Law of God written into the hearts of all people, with faith or not.
