Red States continue to say they are supporting the Constitution
by refusing to follow the law of the land. The new issue is the Pentagon’s
order to allow married homosexuals to have the federal benefits provided
to hetero sexual couples in state national guard units.
The states in violation are OK, TX, LA, MS, GA, and WV. The governor’s
of these states maintain the order is a violation of state rights. What these
governor’s want to deny is that the National Guards are federal reserve
troops and paid for by the federal government. They claim the Guard is a state
agency and therefore under state constitutions.
Homosexual groups call this a return of Jim Crowism of separate but equal. In
Texas four state National Guard bases refuse to process the paperwork. Perry
issued a state order that says the National Guard “is a state agency and as such
is obligated to adhere to the Texas Constitution and the laws of this State, which
clearly define marriage as being between one man and one woman.”
Commander of the Guard has appealed to the State Attorney General, who is running for GOP nomination for governor and a reactionary against Wendy Davis, and Abbott is
refusing to rule. Hagel calls for total compliance.
Here we are again with National law being nullified by states. What will Obama do,
put his tail between his legs? Will he do an Ike and nationalize the National Guards
of these states? Cut off the funding of these National Guard units which are paid
for by the Pentagon? For what reason did 600,000 American citizens die. Lets remember
their ultimate sacrifice during this Veterans Day week!
