Here's a letter from a retired Capt to his senator It's pretty straight forward and should be useful to send to every rep in washington that you can think of. Veteran Writes To Texas Senator With Concern Over Huge Ammo& Weapons Build Up By DHS The Honorable Senator John Cornyn, State of Texas. United States Senate. 517 Hart Senate Office Building. Washington, D.C. 20510 Re: Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and that agencies preparation for war against citizens of the United States of America. Dear Senator Cornyn, It is with gravest concern that I write to you today concerning the recent appropriation of weapons by the Department of HomelandSecurity (DHS) that can only be understood as a bold threat of war by thatagency, and the Obama administration, against the citizens of the United Statesof America. To date, DHS has been unwilling to provide to you, the elected representatives of the People, justification for recent purchases of almost 3,000 mine-resistant ambush-protected (MRAP) armored personnel carriers, 1.6billion rounds of ammunition (with associated weapons), and other weapons systems, when, in fact, the DHS has no war mission or war making authority within the limits of the United States of America. Significant is the fact that at the same time the Obama administration is arming his DHS for war within the limits of the United States against the People of the United States in accordance with his 2008 campaignspeech claiming, “We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order toachieve the national security objectives that we’ve set. We’ve gotta (sic) havea civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong,just as well funded [as the United States military]”–Candidate Barack Obama,2008. The Obama administration is deliberately defunding,over extending, and hollowing the Department of Defense; the only legitimateagency of the U.S. government with a war mission. This act of the Obama administration stands as a glaring threat of war against our nation’s citizens! This act of the Obamaadministration can only be understood as a tyrannical threat against theConstitution of the United States of America! If left unresolved, the peaceloving citizens who have sworn to defend the United States Constitution“against all enemies, both foreign and domestic” are left no option except toprepare to defend themselves, and the U.S. Constitution, against this Administration’s “coup” against the People and the foundations of libertyfought for and defended for the past 238 years. We have no choice if we honor our oaths. The only proper response to this threat against the Americanpeople is for the representatives of the People, the members of the U.S. Houseand Senate, to demand in clear terms that the Administration cannot ignore,that the Department of Homeland Security immediately surrender their newly appropriated weapons of war to the Department of Defense (DoD). Further, sincethe DHS has assumed a position in the Administration to enforce the tyrannical acts of this president against the People of the United States against thelimits of the United States Constitution, it remains for the United StatesCongress to exercise its limiting power in the balancing of powers establishedby our founding fathers, to disestablish and dissolve the DHS as soon aspossible. One needs only to look to the rise of Adolf Hitler, and hisassociated DHS organizations, the SA and the SS, of 1932-1934, to see the outcome of allowing an agency of government this kind of control over the freecitizens of a nation. The people of Germany could not have imagined, until itwas too late, the danger of allowing a tyrant this kind of power. We must not be so naïve as to think it will not happen to us as well if we remain passivetoward this power grab by the Marxist Obama administration! Finally, for more than two centuries the nation has lived inpeace at home because of the protections of our legitimate military and themany appropriate state and federal law enforcement agencies, supported by Constitutional courts. We stand today at a cross-road. Will we allow this present Administration to overthrow our United States Constitution and itslegal processes to amend injustices, or, will we honor our obligations todefend the Constitution against a “domestic” enemy? Our Constitution lays outthe proper methods of resolving our differences; and it does not include itsoverthrow by a rogue agency of a Marxist leadership at home. You, sir, are ourconstitutionally elected agent to defend our Constitution at home. We arecounting upon you. We remain aware, however, of this present threat and willnot expose ourselves as an easy prey to the authors of the destruction of our nation. I know that this letter demands much of you. We elected youbecause we, the citizens of the State of Texas, believe that you are up to thetask at hand and will, against all threats, honor your oath and office. We arealso writing to your fellow members of the House and Senate to stand inintegrity with the Constitution and against this present threat by the Obama administration and his DHS. We refuse to surrender our Constitution or our nation! Resolved, Captain Terry M. Hestilow United States Army, Retired. Fort Worth, Texas. March 23, 2013.
