"As for protecting our borders, there are ways to do that without bringing the military to bear on it (which also would be unconstitutional)."

Putting the military on the border is unconstitutional?

Article 1, Section 8:

"To provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions;"

We are being invaded on a daily basis by illegals coming through our southern border.

Oh and note the first part about executing the "Laws of the Union"

And then there is Article VI Section 4:

"The United States shall guarantee to every state in this union a republican form of government, and shall protect each of them against invasion;and on application of the legislature, or of the executive (when the legislature cannot be convened) against domestic violence."

And before you try and use the Posse Comitatus Act, here is what it says:

"Sec. 1385. - Use of Army and Air Force as posse comitatus

Whoever, except in cases and under circumstances expressly authorized by the Constitution or Act of Congress, willfully uses any part of the Army or the Air Force as a posse comitatus or otherwise to execute the laws shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than two years, or both."

A militia is not the same as the US Armed Forces. It is comprised of the people. You apparently do not think we have the wherewithal to protect our own borders with our own arms. If you’d check into Ron Paul you’d see he is quite strong when it comes to border control. But don’t let the facts bother you. Apparently history began the day you were born. Our enemies just woke up on 9/11 and decided to hate us and attack our interests at home.
