The whole calling in the army basically comes down to if the national guard is federalized or not. If they are, it becomes somewhat of a slippery slope even though there is some historical precedence for it. (I.E calling in troops to bust strikes, etc.. ) If the IL governor calls in the guard, that it would still be relatively normal since that tends to happen on a fairly regular basis for even the smallest disasters or crisis. Best bet would be to incentivize the state government to call up the guard if some sort of military presence is really desired though civilian agencies would be the best overall option.

I can think of a better investment of 14 billion dollars. Like bridges and roads. Hell, one proposed bridge replacement and road expansion project in my local area is estimated to cost 1.9-2.3 BILLION dollars. (Once the complete project is over.)

Not to mention tolls of a new tunnel won't expire til 2070, when I'm 74 years old.

Clearly, the better solution is to ignore every longstanding concern about government overreach and the military's role in police work because we're magical Americans who have an anti-tyranny force field.

Hey bro, i could swear at least 2 leftists here have been very vocal on these things in condemning, should say authoritarian left because lets be frank, thats whom it is, authoritarians are those that silence people and then use violence to do so(on both sides). Its like saying all the right staying classy because Pence.

Unless some theories here are right and anyone whom speaks about personal freedom is a righty :lol:
