So, you would propose that the people should oust a tyrannical regime at their next convenience, the next general election? Hypothetically, how would you overtake this regime when they change the rules on voting, or hypothetically, extend the term of office of their supreme leader without a vote? Talk about futility, foolish actually. I will accept the loss if liberty after a proper protest, but will not allow it to be taken away, nor will I give it away by failing to act on such a threat. Keep in mind, nobody has suggested an overthrow of the US Government. We simply disagree with a misguided administration in the Executive branch. The hurdles to overcome in the Legislative and Judicial, not to mention States, are not insignificant.<quoted text>The point was not which side was right or wrong, the point was the inability to rebel against our own Government with force. Yes the Tax was repealed, through the proper procedure, Politically.
We are our Government, when a majority decides they want change(in taxes or gun laws)they elect those who will accomplish those things, raising arms against the U.S.Gov ernment is an act in futility. This is more true today than it was then, the argument that we need weapons to stand against a tyrannical government is nonsense.
You may relish the thought that we on the right are foolish to oppose the will of the government, but history will prove once again that the fools were the ones who opposed the people.
