▶ "No Legal Basis for Federalization of State Guard Members" - YouTube

Remember the anti-war issues raised during the Bush years? Probably not, as bringing our troops home - especially our state militias - was immediately dropped from the media, and no longer on any political agenda, bar none. Why? Because both party leaderships build on the crimes of previous administrations.

True, there may be pauses, and fleeting moments of hope for us, but they are quickly smashed as we come to realize our cheerfulness was only one step forward as part of a two-step-backward agenda. An agenda which we the people have not crafted, nor do we control.

This brief video is an excellent example of the betrayals now going on in our state legislatures. The legislator is a Democrat assemblyman from Vermont serving in a Democrat-controlled legislature. Why are the states now silent on this grievous unlawful and un-Constitutional crime of our state militias serving in foreign wars without provocation and not in our national defense? Where are the anti-war blowhards and street demonstrators now?

Because right down to the state level both parties have been compromised in their honor and loyalty - certainly the leaders - and betrayed the citizens of their respective states.

Where once America was looked upon as the beacon of hope for the world, we are now seen as a betrayer of those cherished liberties and her own people and foreign friends. Where to begin our foundational repairs is the question that befalls us now.

At the National Press Club, in Washington, D.C., on Jan. 21, 2009, the "Bring the Guard Home! It's the Law" campaign held a press conference. 

One of the speakers was Rep. Michael Fisher (D) of the Vermont legislature. He was recently elected to his fifth term in office. Rep. Fisher is one of the leaders of an initiative to have state governments pass a law to "bring the National Guard home". In his remarks, he charged: "The war in Iraq has no proper legal authorization. The authorization passed by Congress in 2002 has expired by its own terms...Today, there is no legal basis for federalization of state guard members".
