 -- Kimo, USA      
The well digested plan would be a system of justice under natural law.

    J Carlton YES! To restate the quote in context for today's wafflers, A free people are armed and disciplined with a uniformly requisite well-digested plan.
     -- Mike, Norwalk     
    well digested, I like that. Like a free people should be loyal to their freely elected Commander In Chief. Geo was good at the "well digested part". His organizational skills demonstrated at Valley Forge (from where I just returned) are what won the war. He organized for a war of attrition against the enemy. His army was not a rag tag unorganized group of civilians. The US Constitution follows his teaching with all of our militias being organized and coming under the Commander In Chief.
     -- Waffler, Smith     
    I think Waffler is out there somewhere.
     -- Charles     
    Welcome back Waffler, missed your missing reality.
     -- Mike, Norwalk     
    Waffler uses "Commander in Chief" the way Nazi's used "Der Fuerher". As if he were a Supreme Dictator instead of the President of a Free People. But that's our "Waffler" ;-)
     -- J Carlton, Calgary     
    Americans serve a cause, not a person. The cause is Liberty, the means is self-reliance, not servitude. Waffler is a Tory through and through.
     -- E Archer, NYC     
    Firearms and discipline are diametrically opposed.
