The insurgents do no such thing.
The only way to bring down that kind of hurt on them would be to indiscriminately slaughter civilians alongside the insurgents, thus manufacturing more insurgents as we go.
Ergo, a terrible comparison.
There, that was fast.
I simultaneously believe the Constitution was one of the best governmental structures ever invented, and that it had just as many flaws as the founders that put it together.
I think we need a much smaller government, but I also think we need to work our way there.
I think that the Republicans and Democrats are equally to blame for the mess we're in, and I'm sick and tired of the two major parties getting away with having a veritable monopoly on political power from coast to coast.
I don't think the Tea Party movement is the answer to that conundrum, but I applaud the sentiment.
