Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis wants to reestablish a World War II-era civilian military force that he, not the Pentagon, would control.

"he is seeking $3.5 million from the state legislature in startup costs to train and equip them"

If you hire veterans then there is little need of training.

In Texas, the State Guard has the mission of protecting military assets while the real military is out of state. Nothing else that I've ever heard, except that once Governor Fascist Wheels had them doping about trying to find secret tunnels in K-Marts during Jade Helm.

That is until a Democrat wins the governors office, when the Florida militia would be abolished because freedumb

Interesting more fascist militarization of the country.

I see DeSantis is catching up with California fascism, and it's brownshirt State Guard.

Cant have a Florida militia outside of federal government control because they might not agree with liberals. Which is why liberals are against it.

It was too easy to know that liberals/Democrats would be against this.

In most states all adults over the age of 18 is already a "member" of the state militia. It's codified into state law

This is just political theater for the drama loving bumper sticker quoting platitude believing Bobo's

What's the point of a military organization that agrees with DeSantis? It doesn't fit into anything useful, except for DeSantis.

It looks like the governor wants to give selected Right-wing individuals an imprimatur of armed state power. An unregulated militia. I'm, sure that none of them will abuse it.

DeSantis is a fascist demagogue. He doesn't need more power.

Think California should start a private army?

And just who is this army to be fighting?
Cuba?
Georgia?
The Florida congress if they don't agree with the governor?
The citizens?

How do you think the United States military would feel about a rouge force in thier territory?

Bad idea on every leval...Boaz's support proves it's 100% stupid.

This must be more of that Republican "small government" i always hear so much about.

An unregulated militia.

How is it unregulated if the state created it?

And BTW, the constitution says any state can do it, without federal oversight or help. You know? That "power left to the states" thingy?

DeSantis wants it. Not the State.

The regulation of guns and gun users contradicts everything the fascists want right now.

DeSantis is the state you idiot. He was elected by the state.

And the state will have to approve it.

Only in some fascist fantasy is an elected governor considered to be tantamount to "the State".

Why is "small government" Boaz shilling so hard for creating a superfluous government agency?

Boaz is like a merry-go-round without any grease. He goes round and round making a lot of noise but gets nowhere fast.

DeSatan is just floating idea's out there. He is only a slightly smarter version of Trump.

After he loses the governorship of Florida and fails as a Potential GQP candidate for president, he'll get his OAN or Fox News gig and try to out Nazi all of the other fascist troglodytes.

... .unless he (Desatan) gets caught up being involved with the Gaetz misdeeds with underage girls and sex trafficking, which would explain his extremist statements. If he has his brown shirts to protect him from the authorities, he wrongly thinks he's safe.

DeathSantis can send his brownshirts to put down demonstrations with force, to patrol polling places in poor and minority neighborhoods to dissuade those nasty N-Words from voting, and eventually to round up his political opponents, just like Putin does.

Reread the Declaration of Independence. An elected leader is just some schmoe who won an election and will not be in power for that long. He isn't "the state." The people are.

"Leftist states such as Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, California, Washington, Oregon and Indiana all have a similar state militia."

They do.

You said "similar."

Would the Florida State Guard be... a bit different from those groups?

You do realize it's DeSantis we're talking about? DeSantis, the murderous and sociopathic clown?

No reason to trust him with a can opener, much less a private military force.

Omg. And you call others idiots.

He is not the state.

He temporarily represents the state of Florida.

The People are the state.

But bet you thought Trumpy was The United States, too.

No ... he wasn't. He temporarily represented the United States. And he got fired because he didn't represent America anymore but was more interested in actually only represented his own interests.

DeSantis is an extremist and as such will meet a similar fate.

Now ... knowing you are an insurrectionist I will take this opportunity to rub it in a little ... .Biden represents America. And the People decided that and the People will decide how temporary that will be.

Not Trumpy OR his deplorables.
