DHS as Americas Standing Army

John W. Whitehead of The Rutherford Institute writes on the growing threat of the Department Of Homeland Security (DHS) becoming what is essentially America’s standing army.

There were, and are, very good reasons why our founding fathers put a clause (ARTICLE I, SECTION 8, CLAUSE 12) in our Constitution to prevent such abuse from occurring; for a good summary please read this write-up on the “Army Clause” from Heritage.org.
