Proposal to limit the standing army for the country to 5,000 men.Submitted by tonym on Sat, 03/30/2013 - 11:57
Today I learned...
"There was a proposal at the Constitutional Convention to limit the standing army for the country to 5,000 men.
George Washington sarcastically agreed with this proposal as long as a stipulation was added that no invading army could number more than 3,000 troops!"
It's just interesting to me that the size of the army was apparently a concern. That, along with the second amendment indicates how real the threat of the government to the people was/is. And yet today our Jewish media has everyone crying treason at the very notion of the idea. Interesting.
