    You know so much of the Constitution is just there to add length. We didn't want out Constitution to be shorter than the French Constitution! Hell no! AMERICA!!

    That's why there's that completely extraneous, non-binding, non-illuminating clause about a well-something-military-whatnot. You're just supposed to ignore those little "connector phrases" in the Constitution like that part in the First Amendment about Religion.
