to raise and support Armies, provide and maintain a Navy, provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the laws of the Union, suppress insurrections and repel invasions. As the oath I intend to take states: “I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign and domestic”, and I will absolutely legislate accordingly to protect our state and support our military.
