    You should include the militias who are in place to defend against the Tyranny that the government has put into place. The militias are in place to defend enemies both foreign and domestic, We can't count on our military alone when they have allowed over 300,000 plus troops to invade American soil. There are foreign troops on our land and they are ready to take over America and the US military is doing nothing about it!
