Further, valid reasoning why we must ALWAYS be Armed;

"Let us recollect that peace or war will not always be left to our option; that however moderate or unambitious we may be, we cannot count upon the moderation, or hope to extinguish the ambition of others. Who could have imagined at the conclusion of the last war that France and Britain, wearied and exhausted as they both were, would so soon have looked with so hostile an aspect upon each other? To judge from the history of mankind, we shall be compelled to conclude that the fiery and destructive passions of war reign in the human breast with much more powerful sway than the mild and beneficent sentiments of peace; and that to model our political systems upon speculations of lasting tranquillity, is to calculate on the weaker springs of the human character."

"Necessity, especially in politics, often occasions false hopes, false reasonings, and a system of measures correspondingly erroneous....
"...If we take into the account the momentary humors or dispositions which may happen to prevail in particular parts of the society, and to which a wise administration will never be inattentive, is the man whose situation leads to extensive inquiry and information less likely to be a competent judge of their nature, extent, and foundation than one whose observation does not travel beyond the circle of his neighbors and acquaintances? Is it not natural that a man who is a candidate for the favor of the people, and who is dependent on the suffrages of his fellow-citizens for the continuance of his public honors, should take care to inform himself of their dispositions and inclinations, and should be willing to allow them their proper degree of influence upon his conduct? This dependence, and the necessity of being bound himself, and his posterity, by the laws to which he gives his assent, are the true, and they are the strong chords of sympathy between the representative and the constituent."

Has logic gone so far from us, that the politicians of today can't readily perceive truths such as these? OR, if examined under a different light, the politicians know EXACTLY what they are doing and have ceased to care about the Welfare of the People entirely? Is it not time to rein them ALL in and FORCE them to do their jobs as they were INTENDED by the Constitution to do? Both, the politicians and the courts? Before it's TO LATE ,for us to be able, to do ANYTHING? If not for ourselves, than for OUR CHILDREN?
