We are private citizens and members of the California State Militia Volunteers.
We promote, uphold, and defend the Rights Secured 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 unit.
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 unalienable** 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 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 CSMV does not advocate any acts of violence and/or aggression. We remain a community service and defense-oriented organization.
What we are not.
We are not a militant or inciteful group
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.
*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.
Unalienable is an adjective that can be defined as “not transferable to another or not capable of being taken away or denied; inalienable.” For example, there are certain rights that American citizens are born with and these are unalienable.
Inalienable means something that “can’t be transferred to someone else, taken away, or denied.” This item, right, or principle isn’t alienable or “able to be sold.” For example: Americans consider freedom of speech an inalienable right although not all countries agree with this.
Un- is a prefix that means “not” and gives a negative or opposite force. Although in- can mean “inclusion” (as in inland or indwelling), it can also be a synonym for un-, and is commonly used with nouns. Therefore, some words with the prefix in- can also mean a negative force, like inattention, inexpensive, or inorganic.
