Protecting our states against invasion is a key guarantee of Constitution

Print Article

Article 4 Section 4, Constitution of the United States, says: “The United States shall guarantee to every state in the Union a republican form of government [meaning Congress], and protect each of them against invasion.”

Anyone running for the Executive Office of the United States SHALL adhere to that “rule of law” (the Supremacy Clause of the Constitution of the united states says as much).

So far, none of the Democrats running for the Presidency has made ANY indication that he or she intends to “protect each” state “against invasion.” Only President Trump has so sworn.
