    I think the Posse Comitatus Act would be relevant, here. It's illegal for the government to use the military to go to war against our own people.

    I should hope that a significant majority of those in the military would refuse to do so anyway.

    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    This country would not exist if your way if thinking prevailed two centuries ago. Such cowardice may be what will ultimately doom this country.

    No necessarily, no.

    IF the majority of the people demanded that the 2nd amendment be repealed in its entirety, would you, Turtle, go alone with this ??
    We do NOT really have a "peoples democracy" (where the majority rule)...but still, IF a majority of the Congress voted to end the 2 nd admendent...
    This action (limited ?) has occurred in England...are we that far behind ???

    even in a thread about a parallel universe, you still feel the need to insult me.

    sad.

    and btw, wanting to use violence as a last resort, when more peaceful & democratic mans of addressing political grievances exist, is very American.

    by your logic, because we didn't IMMEDIATELY resort to deadly violence to protest against British tyranny, and instead tried more peaceful means first, our Founding Fathers were in fact "cowards".

    There are plenty of modern day Tories who think the government is above all else and infallible. These people have always had a dependent mentalility since the beginning of civilized society and have always done their best to enjoy the powers that come with "being kept" by an authoritative nanny such as a king, the state, or politbureau.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    How come the Colonists didn't start using deadly violence in 1733, against British tyranny????

    those pathetic cowards. They should have immediately risen up and killed the Brits right away. Cowards...all of them!!

    Which disproves Thunder's point that you can simply elect new politicians to undo what was done.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    And of course Bob, the Tories must defend their masters else they lose their umbrella. They must demonize those looking to reign in tyranny and oppression in order to protect their special treatment, kind of like little pets of the state, they must do all they can to rabble rouse against the rights of people so that theiir masters will remain happy. These modern day Tories use words like rights where they have none, they try their best to sell disarmament under the transparently and patently false premises of public safety, they constantly contort the "social safety net" definition to fit the agenda, and they always hide behind "the people" that they so disdain.

    The reason they cower so is because they know that once their masters tyranny ends, not only does their lifestyle as they have no actual use in polite and open society but they also know that they too could be called to answer for their empowerment of the tyrants and it scares them too. After all, tyrants and Tories tend to be cowards.
