    They are doing a bang up job in Afghanistan against a much smaller force than 30 million... so you have a very valid point!

The US military holds top secret weapons that are good enough to deal with any guerrilla warfare, like there is this radar that the military can use and it can spot targets on the group regardless if they are using the trees for cover, the radar can still see you. So that would help make guerilla warefare hard. And then again, Delta Force is a really good unit.
    Yeah, IR is really top-secret... good job!

    Re: Is it possible to overthrow the US government

    Of course it would be possible. And if necessary, it would be done. I find it amusing that some of us here actually think that everyone in our military and police forces would fight AGAINST a government overthrow. Both sides would have tanks, fighter planes, etc. Because our good boys and girls in the military would be more likely to side with the rebellion than a tyrannical government (because the latter is what it would take for rebellion). You actually think that if our government became so bad that it required a physical citizen coo, all of our brave soldiers would shoot said rebels? Of course not. Many of them would be on the side of the rebels. And most of them would be smart enough to get their hands on heavy equipment prior to jumping ship.

    Re: Is it possible to overthrow the US government

    Sure, any government can be overthrown. The fastest and easiest way is at the ballot box where we can vote the current government out of office and put new people in. A large-scale uprising against the government could also put them out of office.

    However, what most people mean when they talk about overthrowing the government is a single person or a small group of people and then... nope, not a chance. It takes a broad public outcry and people willing to get off their backsides and do something about it to make it work and good luck getting that to happen.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Re: Is it possible to overthrow the US government

    No, it is not possible to overthrow the U. S. Government.

    For the past year we have witnessed an attempt to do this very thing by a “president” who is, at best, a Marxist and his socialist entourage.

    What most folks appear to have forgotten is that the U. S. Government is a Constitutional Republic run by “We the People” both civil and military.

    So, while we cannot very well overthrow ourselves, we can throw the usurpers of our government out on their butts, with our votes, before any kind of force becomes necessary.
