  A well regulated Militia



The Authentic Homeland Security

A well regulated Militia refers to “the Militia of the several states” and clarified as the state unorganized constitutional militia. This constitutional militia is not organized or funded by government interests, but self-assembled by citizen volunteers committed to the security of a free state. In times of disaster or coercion, these men and women: the Minutemen – may require the support of additional conscientious individuals from their local communities.

This constitutionally mandated institution reigns supreme in importance over all institutions, with the exception of “We The People,” in defense of individual rights: those rights that define a free state – as sanctioned by the U.S. Constitution and its charter, The Declaration of Independence. By this, the constitutional militia is said to “defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign or domestic.”

A well regulated Militia has the minacious power to transpose the police state into the constitutional servants originally intended.

Political concerns are an individual matter that may or may not promote, yield, or maintain state respect for individual rights. Unlike politics, the constitutional militia should not be an instrument of division. Any militia intentionally organized on race, religion, politics, or participates in political persuasion at rallies, or protests – shall be seen as a civil threat and justly classified as an armed “extremist” group.

The constitutional militia is nonpartisan and correctly screens candidates for such things as criminal behavior or extremism but is otherwise unconcerned with their race, religion or political preference. Its main challenge, however, is to overcome the institution’s unmerited association with alleged militia ‘nuts’ and lingering bad press that discourage membership.

Should the free state be lost to the political corruption of a police state, responsible citizens shall face the propaganda for what it is, abandon politics for the Constitution, and take up arms for their commitment to the security of a free state.


With sizable rank, this decentralized defense shall be a formidable adversary for any enemy, foreign or domestic. A well regulated Militia holds that, in a free state, individual rights are non-negotiable and asserts that the duties of a Minuteman shall always be limited to those consistent with a free state. This commitment sets the institution apart as the authentic homeland security.




Subordination of Society
to Moral Law

The American Form of Government

Basic Forms of Government: A short primer of world political systems and what sets America apart. Why we are a Republic and not a Democracy and why it matters.


The United States is a Republic, constitutionally framed as a limited government for Liberty and “public matter” circumscribed to safeguard Individual Rights.

The most profoundly revolutionary achievement of the United States of America was the subordination of society to moral law.

The principle of man’s individual rights represented the extension of morality into the social system — as a limitation on the power of the state, as man’s protection against the brute force of the collective, as the subordination of might to right. The United States was the first moral society in history.

All previous systems had regarded man as a sacrificial means to the ends of others, and society as an end in itself. The United States regarded man as an end in himself, and society as a means to the peaceful, orderly, voluntary coexistence of individuals. All previous systems had held that man’s life belongs to society, that society can dispose of him in any way it pleases, and that any freedom he enjoys is his only by favor, by the permission of society, which may be revoked at any time. The United States held that man’s life is his by right (which means: by moral principle and by his nature), that a right is the property of an individual, that society as such has no rights, and that the only moral purpose of a government is the protection of individual rights.

The concept of a “right” pertains only to action — specifically, to freedom of action. It means freedom from physical compulsion, coercion or interference by other men.

The Declaration of Independence stated that men “are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights.” Whether one believes that man is the product of a Creator or of nature, the issue of man’s origin does not alter the fact that he is an entity of a specific kind — a rational being — that he cannot function successfully under coercion, and that rights are a necessary condition of his particular mode of survival.

The Declaration of Independence laid down the principle that “to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men.” This provided the only valid justification of a government and defined its only proper purpose: to protect man’s rights by protecting him from physical violence.

Thus the government’s function was changed from the role of ruler to the role of servant. The government was set to protect man from criminals — and the Constitution was written to protect man from the government. The Bill of Rights was not directed against private citizens, but against the government — as an explicit declaration that individual rights supersede any public or social power. — Ayn Rand, The Virtue of Selfishness
Whether a free society enjoys liberty through constitutional clarity, anarcho-capitalism, or voluntaryism — it must as well be understood by those committed to its security.   m o r e . . .  




Understanding American Liberty

Our legislators are not sufficiently apprized of the rightful limits of their powers; that their true office is to declare and enforce only our natural rights and duties, and to take none of them from us.
– Jefferson, 1816




Government of Laws, Not of Men

Understanding the difference between laws and legislation, or as Adams put it, “a government of laws, not of men,” is critical in the fight for a free society.




We Need Independent Militias

That a well-regulated militia, composed of the body of the people, trained to arms, is the proper, natural, and safe defence of a free State; that standing armies, in time of peace, should be avoided, as dangerous to liberty; and that in all cases the military should be under strict subordination to, and governed by, the civil power.
– George Mason (1776), father of United States Bill of Rights












 The Right to Form a Militia



Constitutional Militia

Just as militias are essentially local, so also are they essentially independent of established authorities, since the militia may have to challenge or bypass those authorities if they abuse their authority or fail to perform their lawful duties.

The legal basis for assemblies of militias are two natural rights: the right to assemble and the right to keep and bear arms. Combined, they are the right to assemble bearing arms. The Framers considered it obvious that rights which could be exercised separately could be exercised in combination, and would have thought present attempts to outlaw independent assemblies of militia units as absurd. The term “well-regulated” used in the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution did not mean “regulated by some official”. It meant “well-trained and disciplined”. A militia can and should be self-regulated.







Constitution / Bill of Rights

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

Article [IX] Amendment 9 - Unenumerated Rights
The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.

Article [X] Amendment 10 - Reserved Powers
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.










The American Militia

. . . look to the past for guidelines about a free society's ideal defense, they must pass over the traditional militia system. Despite its appealing decentralist rhetoric and its close ties with the American Revolution, it was from the very core a coercive system, one clearly inimical to liberty. Instead, they should cast their eyes upon the volunteer militia of the Jacksonian period. Although maligned by military historians, forgotten by all others, and corrupted by post-Civil War statism, it is the one military precedent that most closely embodies libertarian precepts.
– Jeffrey Rogers Hummel




. . . you own those rights, they are your individual rights. When your government fails to perform its primary function to secure them, it becomes your honorable duty to do so by joining your local Militia.
