I don't have to explain why we need such a Civilian Force, RG. In fact, I haven't really thought about it. That wasn't the point of my post. The point of the post was to point out that you had taken a quote, from a very lengthy speech, way out of context and used it to suggest that Obama wanted to create some sort of armed civilian force like the Gestapo. I'm not here to defend Obama, It just doesn't promote rational debate to twist quotes way out of context, in order to induce fear or "win" an argument.
I personally like taking full measure of an impartial set of facts before I pass judgment, that's all.
