I think the point is situational awareness. Always know if surrounded by a faction in a new American Civil War if you should hug a tree or pee on a tree.

The point was that if it is tyranny in that example than it was also tyrrany when the FF dragged people into a revolution they didn't want.
I'm pointing out the hypocrisy of the argument.
I already lnow nobody cares about logic. They just want their side to win so they can call the shots. Thank you for proving my point.

The conservatives were most definitely British, and the American populists were most definitely the libertarian left leaning for massive reform and change for the people and not be under the thumb of a monarchy.

Republicans think they're the only ones that own guns. The north is loaded with left wing sportsmen that hunt and own guns. We actually have a purpose for our guns here we don't use them to shoot cans.
America is no longer a democracy. Everyone and anyone is for sale in Washington. The corporations own this place and everything in it.
I always get a kick how right wingers are always complaining about social programs and taxes. As if food stamps are the issues not trillion dollar parachutes for bank CEO's. The rich are robbing you and everyone else blind.

I am "in love" with the Constitution. It is the only thing keeping Americans safe from the hordes that want to run us over in the name of some BS notion of "progress"
There is nothing biased about my view:
Great but that wasn't what my point was about. It was about the contradiction between the type of society the Constitution brought into being and your dumb 100% or tyranny claim.
