Ahhhh, but theres the rub.
RLC may endorse Simon, but would/will Simon endorse the RLC's positions? - I doubt it.

They apparently feel Simon meets their requirements or I don't think they would have worked so hard for him. What little I have heard him on local radio, he seems to endorse the constitutional obligations that are posted by the RLC Caucus.
I was impressed by him before the primary after reading some threads posted here, although I was at the time leaning for a local man whom I admire very much, Bill Jones. After hearing him interviewed on talk radio in my area, I am enthused by his statements about States rights vs Federal government intervention.
He has a rough road ahead of him with the power and money machine of Davis, but with the help of organizations like RLC perhaps he has a better chance of getting his message out?

11.4 U. S military personnel should always be under U. S. command.
I would clarify that the WWII type arrangement where Monty was under Eisenhower but also had U.S. units under himself in the Allied Effort in Europe would be acceptable. (I believe both D-Day and the Bulge saw Monty with US forces under his control.)
There are various words used: attached, operational control, etc., that need clarification in this kind of setting.
