In case the President and his entourage of political sidekicks haven't read the Constitution lately, I call their attention to several parts of it that are especially relevant for our times.

From the U.S. Constitution, Section 8: "Congress shall have power to-provide for calling forth the militia to execute the laws of the Union, suppress insurrections, and repel invasions."

And from the Bill of Rights, Article II:"A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed"

And from Article IV: "The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated."

Now, it seems to me, that even 200 years ago, our wise Founders were well aware of the dangers that would face a nation, any nation, especially a young nation. And although they obviously couldn't pinpoint what those dangers might be, they did their best to cover the possible contingencies.

In this Thanksgiving season, we might thank God that they did, because just such a contingency has arisen in the Southwest part of the country that, if not dealt with by our government, will in all probability be handled by the citizens themselves. Which, I submit, will also, according to the Constitution, be a lawful action, however unlawful they may be told it is.

I refer to the chaos taking place on Arizona's border with Mexico.

For some years now, the U.S. Border Patrol has not effectively controlled our borders with Mexico. Clinton, both Bushes, and Congress have all assured President Fox of Mexico that we will NOT close our borders to illegal aliens invading us.

Arizona's Cochise County alone shares 82 miles of border with Mexico. Mostly ranches. The invasion of these American ranches by Mexican illegals runs the gamut of criminal chaos. They slaughter livestock, tear down fences, contaminate water supplies, drain livestock cisterns, break into ranch homes, beat, loot, and rape American citizens, while both governments look the other way.

Tired of this no-win situation, and fighting for their lives, some Arizona citizens have formed militias that detain illegals invading the country and turn them over to the authorities. Even so, in most cases, the U.S. Border Patrols turns them loose to roam the state, even the country, at will.

To make matters even more galling, democratic socialists are demanding that the federal government "investigate" these citizens militias-as if THEY are the criminals for trying to protect their lives and property!

Given that the democratic socialists don't recognize that the Citizen's Militia is authorized and defended by the Constitution---they don't even recognize the Constitution-- it's understandable why they want the government to investigate militias.

Even so, it's inconceivable that American citizens (which I presume they are) wouldn't demand the government do just the opposite: investigate the invasion of our borders by illegal aliens and the crimes they commit once they get here. That alone would eliminate the need for militias.

So what can YOU do to help your Arizona neighbors? You can vote your support for the local Arizona citizen militia---made up of farmers and ranchers in the invaded areas---by e-mailing the Arizona Daily Star for more details and on-line voting procedure--and acting on it!

Then, this Thanksgiving, you can sit back in relative safety and thank the Lord you don't live in a state that borders on Mexico.
