ODon: If you would read the Constitution, you would know what “well regulated” means. Article II, Section 2:“The President shall be Commander in Chief of the Armyh and Navy of the United State, and of the Militia of the several States”. It was written to “Provide for the Common Defense” [preamble] while avoiding such threats to our liberties as: a standing army, conscription, or mercenaries. Militias can only be used for defense, not invading whatever country has resources the capitalists want. This system was abandoned in the late 19th century in favor of imperialism, as the war profiteers of the Civil War took over the economy. Switzerland still uses it, but then they consider their military for national defense only; their banks can deal with ruling the world.
