Many Native Americans suffered from exposure, disease, and starvation while en route to their destinations, and many died, including 4,000 of the 15,000 relocated Cherokee.
There never has been a "republic".
The Constitution guarantees to every state a Republican form of government (Art. 4, Sec. 4). No state may join the United States unless it is a Republic. Our Republic is one dedicated to "liberty and justice for all."
Wait, wait. did you just post something that in the very first line states itself as opinion as a valid argument?

I thought I would add that it is true that SWAT teams prefer to make their raids at night, it is also true that the US Army has also become a "night fighting force". Beginning with the first gulf war, US forces have been equipped with night vision goggles and scopes. Strikes today on the Taliban in Afghanistan are also done during the cover of night. The darkness offers a distinct advantage to those who have night vision capablilty. If any of you think we might be fighting conventional forces in the US in any future "civil war" might want to keep this in mind. You cannot even defend yourself when blind. If you don;t have what they do then have the upper hand on you.
Expensive? You bet it is, good quality 3rd gen. night vision will cost you about $3,000. All your preparation could be for naught if you have not considered this.

Louis Thomas McFadden (July 25, 1876 – October 1, 1936) was a Republican member of the U.S. House of Representatives from Pennsylvania.
McFadden is also remembered for his criticism of the Federal Reserve, which he claimed was created and operated by European banking interests who conspired to economically control the United States. On June 10, 1932, McFadden made a 25-minute speech before the House of Representatives(2) , in which he accused the Federal Reserve of deliberately causing the Great Depression. McFadden also claimed that Wall Street bankers funded the Bolshevik Revolution through the Federal Reserve banks and the European central banks with which it cooperated. McFadden moved to impeach President Herbert Hoover in 1932, and also introduced a resolution bringing conspiracy charges against the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve. The impeachment resolution was defeated by a vote of 361 to 8; it was seen as a big vote of confidence to President Hoover from the House.
In 1933, he introduced House Resolution No. 158, articles of impeachment for the Secretary of the Treasury, two assistant Secretaries of the Treasury, the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve, and the officers and directors of its twelve regional banks.
McFadden died in 1936 on a visit to New York City and was interred in East Canton Cemetery in Canton, Pennsylvania.
