Dan McKnight returns to the show to talk about Defend the Guard’s recent success in Arizona and how you can help bring about another victory this Monday in Texas. Defend the Guard is state-level legislation that bars Congress from deploying National Guard troops to foreign combat operations unless war is formally declared. In other words, it forces Congress to abide by the Constitution. McKnight lays the groundwork for where the fight stands right now after a victory in the Arizona Senate. Scott and McKnight then call for all listeners from Texas, or anyone who has friends or family in Texas, to take part in a phone bank operation this Monday, March 27th. McKnight provides the details on how you can get involved. Then, at the end, Scott plays the recording of his statement from the Defend the Guard hearing in Maine last Monday.
Discussed on the show:
- Arizona Petition
- Montana Petition
- Maine Petition
- Texas Petition
