House Bill 2732View the Bill
Increase public awareness that the states and their voters have a role in deciding when our sons and daughters go to war.
Pass "Defend the Guard" legislation in a requisite number of states to compel Congress, out of military necessity, to reassert its authority under the U.S. Constitution and take charge of when, where, and how our nation goes to war.
Return to a constitutional foreign policy of a limited-government republic by bringing our troops home, ending our endless wars, and only using military force when required to protect the lives, liberty, and property of Americans.
The goal of "Defend the Guard," a project of BringOurTroopsHome.US, is to have states reassert their Tenth Amendment rights under the U.S. Constitution and provide a necessary check on the federal government's use of military force as a tool of U.S. foreign policy.
State legislators have an essential, civic obligation to their voters to demand that the federal government adhere to congressional wars powers as mandated by Article I, Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution. Without an official declaration of war by the U.S. Congress, states have a duty to withhold their troops from active combat.
The sole objective of "Defend the Guard" is to obligate the federal government to obey the U.S. Constitution before sending our sons and daughters to fight more endless wars.
