We are private citizens and members of the 2nd Infantry Regiment, California State Militia. We promote, uphold, and defend the freedoms guaranteed in writing to the people within the US Constitution, the Bill Of Rights, and the Constitution of the State of California.
We are defensive in nature and do not "protest" as a unit. Our members are free to express their beliefs and perform their civic duties as they see fit, separate from official
endorsement of the 2nd Infantry Regiment.
We believe, promote and defend the principles of an elected, just government designed and bequeathed to us by our forefathers to ensure that all citizens regardless of race, color, religion, sex or natural origin are allowed to quietly enjoy those inalienable rights and protections defined by our founding fathers in the US Constitution and Bill Of Rights.
We acknowledge our responsibility as citizens and exercise our rights as established in the Constitution of the United States to maintain our militia and train our members in the many disciplines necessary to the function of the militia both as a whole and to the members individually.
We acknowledge a responsibility to educate our members in areas of history, law, and principles of a Republican* form of government as compiled in the experience and records of our forefathers.
The 2nd Infantry Regiment, CSM does not advocate any acts of violence and/or aggression. We remain a community service and defense-oriented organization.
*the word "Republican" as used here refers to the form of government (Republic) and not a specific political party.
The CSM welcomes membership from all political affiliations.
What we are not.
We are not a hate group.
We are not anti-government.
We are not conspiracy nuts.
We do seek change but seek it by peaceful means.
