You may call it nonsense, and from your perspective you may be right. I was not as clear as I would have liked to be. When I say "out gunned" I can best describe that with a question. How does my glock.40 compete with a M16 and predator drones? That is what I mean by out gunned. It is a fact that Americans have more firearms than the military, but you can not compare the firearms of the average citizen to the fire power of the US Military.
We have learned from Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan that small pocket insurgencies do work, but I am attempting to look and understand the bigger picture.
Even IF the people were able to oust the American Government, then what? As I said in my opening post, it's not like you can look to other American Politicians to fill these needed areas, for the system is corrupt from the top to the bottom. Also as I said in my opening post, the Founding Fathers have already shown us the way, they said it is our duty at this point in time to start over. Is it that even a realistic possibility in this day and age? Of that I am not so sure. Like a few other posters have said, I too wonder if it is simply too late. I think it is fair to say that none of us want armed conflict, I know I do not, but what other choices are left at this point? Nothing else seems to be working. I myself would rather stand up, fight and lose, than to have done nothing.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
