    The 13th Amendment (The Slavery Commission)

    Doesn’t apply to American slave armies. And things are about to get worse. Article by Laurence M. Vance.

    The Thirteenth Amendment was passed by the Senate in April of 1864 and by the House in January of 1865. It was ratified by the necessary number of states in December of 1865.
    Although the Thirteenth Amendment abolished slavery, it does not apply to the U.S. government.

    The United States declared war on Germany in April of 1917 and declared war on Austria-Hungary in December of 1917. The Selective Service Act of 1917 (enacted in May of 1917) required all males aged 21 to 30 to register with the government in case they were “needed” for military service. The age range was expanded in 1918 to all men aged 18 to 45. Almost three million American men were conscripted into the military by the U.S. government during World War I; that is, they were forced to destroy, maim, and kill for the U.S. government in an unjust foreign war that the United States had no business getting involved in.

    Governments that force their citizens to take up arms against the citizens of other countries do so for one reason: they are engaging in unjust and immoral wars. Waging war in the actual defense of ones country, home, property, and family does not require conscription. If a foreign army landed on the east or west coast of the United States, the government wouldn’t have to conscript a single American to repel a threat or invasion. Americans would flock to the coasts, and use their own guns and ammo.
    Even in the very best of situations, voting is still an unmitigated failure. The fact that any simple majority of individuals (mob) can determine an outcome that adversely affects the minority (mob rule) is against all natural rights. In the United State today, all who vote harm others so that they might benefit. By voting, they are also sanctioning theft of private property at the point of a gun, and the redistribution of that property to those who did not earn it.

    while i don't disagree, how does that apply to the japs attacking pearl harbor or the soviets attacking alaska?

    if soviet tanks had rolled on alaska, could a civilian militia have stopped them?

    and does Vance recognize the existence of global alliances, that Australia, for instance, might not be able to defend itself alone against a militarized and expansionist china?

    "The Constitution does not directly mention the word "draft" or even the older "conscription," but its authorization for the Congress to "raise and support Armies" is a clear indication of the same concept - to use the resources of the nation to create or man an army."

    Would Americans use their own guns and ammo to fight off a missile attack?
