I researched them quite abit since I have been considering seeking employment with them. I have some Blackwater video footage from Iraq.
I need to add that they have AH-6 Littlebirds, small helicopters normally used by Special Forces.
They are not a private "army" they have the same capabilities of light infantry with light armored vehicles and some helicopters. Thats it no tanks, no IFVs, no Artillery, no mortars, no gunships, no bombers, no fighters, no anti tank weapons, and nothing heavier than M2 Browning machine guns and MK-19 automatic grenade launchers.
Are you sure you want to be employed by them? These guys are bad news.. Based on that last video, they seems to have no morals or guidelines they do what they want to. You might be right about them being a private army, I can't confirm that but they are contracted by the US secretly supposily. By the constitution is this even legal? A contracted mecenary army secretly employed by the US don't smell too rosy to me. But if you want to I can't stop you. All I ask you is to make a careful decision.

"Don't think a dictatorship would be a bad idea".... amazing that someone could post that in all seriousness in this country. In case you haven't noticed a dictatorship is the anti-thesis of all the ideals that this country has stood for, whether we have ever lived up to them or not.
BTW progressive.org is back up and running.
Also to mikeboydUS according to the constitution Arnold can't be president because he is foreign born, it only makes sense that he wouldn't be allowed to run for vice-president either.

Published in 1985. Hope's career as President after his widely popular election and subsequent constitutional convention, establishing him as the "space tyrant" of the title. While Jupiter's political system is a more or less exact analogue of the current U.S. system, the constitutional convention is unusual in its portrayal, essentially giving the executive branch of government carte blanche in restructuring the entire government.
