A good militia is of such importance to a nation, that it is the chief part of the constitution of any free government. For though as to other things, the constitution be never so slight, a good militia will always preserve the public liberty. But in the best constitution that ever was, as to all other parts of government, if the militia be not upon a right foot, the liberty of that people must perish. The militia of ancient Rome, the best that ever was in any government, made her mistress of the world: but standing armies enslaved that great people, and their excellent militia and freedom perished together. The Lacedemonians continued eight hundred years free, and in great honour, because they had a good militia. The Swisses at this day are the freest, happiest, and the people of all Europe who can best defend themselves, because they have the best militia.

By the constitution of the present militia in both nations, there is but a small number of the men able to bear arms exercised; and men of quality and estate are allowed to send any wretched servant in their place: so that they themselves are become mean, by being disused to handle arms; and will not learn the use of them, because they are ashamed of their ignorance: by which means the militias being composed only of servants, these nations seem altogether unfit to defend themselves, and standing forces to be necessary. Now can it be supposed that a few servants will fight for the defence of their masters' estates, if their masters only look on?
My father,who is now dead, taught his boys how to shoot. He served in Korea. I won an M1 Garrand, like the one I am holding in that picture, by shooting in a sanctioned Rifle Match, through the Division of Civilian Marksmanship.
There is no glory in the defense of Liberty, it seems to me, for any connection to the enemies of Liberty, at all, is an injury caused by those inhuman souls.
I really appreciate the help of my recently found friend IN Liberty, as I think I am beginning to understand the scripture concerning The Fear of God, being, to hate evil.
I may be wrong of course.
