Another advantage the "govt" would have over us would be the label of "terrorist". Rewards would be paid for your capture or kill and you would not know who to trust. Anyone resisting martial law would be labled a terrorist and would probably be killed no questions asked. After all it is martial law. The colonials were alot tougher than people here today. Hell, one day without airconditioning and people here are crying. This country has been sissyified (I know it's not even a word).

have you really accepted 911 as a terrorist attack common. i mean it was an act to produce terror, but their is no proof that it was not a domestic intel operation. in fact quite the opposite. and look at what has come since 911. the pat-RIOT act, the lies upon lies about iraq, the threats to other countries(iran, korea), and a furtherance of the unification of the world state. these all work towards a very specific goal and the current admin. seems very happy to ride this wave of filth. there are already armed military personel here in nyc, in the subway and train stations. have you gotten used to it yet? neither have i, but many more have.

I would dare say a large portion of the public wouldnt do anything in the event of such actions by the current administration. Most people just want their cable tv, SUV, and internet connection, and dont care if it came at the price of some liberties and 10,000 vaporized citizens, especially if a terrorist spin was put on the whole mess.

180 million pissed off rednecks with guns working in an organized fashion will pretty much change their mind. What the government needs to remember is that just because they are too stupid to organize themselves doesn't mean 300 million pissed off citizens can't.
What will you do when they take away your rights?
Earl Turner and his fellow patriots face this question and are forced underground when the U.S. government bans the private possession of firearms and stages mass Gun Raids to round up suspected gun owners.
The hated Equality Police begin hunting them down, but the patriots fight back with a campaign of sabotage and assassination. An all-out race war occurs as the struggle escalates. Turner and his comrades suffer terribly, but their ingenuity and boldness in devising and executing new methods of guerrilla warfare lead to a victory of cataclysmic intensity and worldwide scope.
