    The 17 'yes' people have watched Red Dawn way too many times... It's a movie, folks. It's not real life.

    Stop already with this ridiculous discussion. It's like saying the Spice Girls could beat up Mike Tyson because there are 5 of them...

    It's retarded to think that THIS:



    Would have any problem with THIS:



    We're talking a fight that would last a matter of seconds...

    We have artillery batteries in Iraq and Afghanistan, too, and those conflicts have managed to last years. But don't let that get in the way of your GI Joe fantasies about warfare...

    Re: Is it possible to overthrow the US government

    but would the soldiers be willing to fire into a crowd of people?

    thats what a revolution would hinge on
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    Why would there be a crowd of people in the first place?

    It's not like insurgents just stand around in big groups, openly challenging Specter gunships and artillery batteries.

    Yes and guess what? All it would take is 12-20 people in right place at the right time. We would be done. People seem to think this would be so hard but it really would not.

    Don't flatter yourself that a bunch of Nascar watching, beer-drinking gun nuts are in the same league as the insurgents.

    Re: Is it possible to overthrow the US government

    It's not possible to overthrow the US government with a few goofball militias with hunting rifles. But of course, the hypothetical question of a hypothetical revolution pivots on the question of which side the soldiers are on.

    You are correct they aren't. They are much, much better. Because we know all gun owners and people who support the 2nd amendment are Nascar watching beer drinking gun nuts.

    I'm just surprised no one brought up relative banging or tobacco chewing yet.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    What's so special about the insurgents? Not that you would know anything about it, of course...
