Per the military fighting American citizens:
Having been in the military, I can tell you that, no, no solder, sailor or airman want's to harm the very citizens who's country we swore to
On the other hand if a group of civilians were to show up and open fire, that would be a different story. You don't care WHO
it is that
is shooting at you at that point. You just want them to stop, and unfortunately that means returning deadly force with equal deadly force.
The other problem that you have is this: we swore an oath. It was this oath right here:
"I, (insert name), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies,
foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United
States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me
The only way your revolution would work (as far as using force), would be for the US military to suddenly NOT recognize POTUS as the Commander In
Chief. They would have to no longer recognize and accept the authority of the Secretary of Defense.
The Joint Chiefs would have to be in agreement of both those things above.
The only way THAT would happen is if the Joint Chiefs (or their officers below them) are ordered to slaughter innocent civilians who are
If let's say, the US army was told to secure a US city, because there are people their that are "rebelling", they are not going to like it. No.
However, if those same civilians then open up on the US army, or offered deadly force in anyway, weapons status would be "red and free". They don't
care that one of those citizens is a 75 year old granny that bakes pies on Sundays. Not when she's toting a double barrel 12ga shotgun and is opening
up on them. That's because if Granny has an apple pie in her hand, she's a "non-combatant". If she's blowing away solders with that 12ga, she
just became a "combatant".
The only way a revolution using force would work in this country, is if the vast majority of the population took up arms and then refused to pay
taxes, refused to do their jobs as public service (IE police and firemen), and that means of course refusing to work, or use the current money system
to buy supplies of any kind (Food, gas, water, etc). And then hold their ground.
If the US military were then ordered to go and round up people, take their arms away, etc, etc. Then the Joint Chiefs could turn around and give POTUS
their middle finger. Because at that point (at least for now), they would be violating the constitution, that very same document they swore to
There IS such a thing as a "Lawful Order". And there is such a thing as a "Unlawful Order". A "Unlawful Order" is one that either violates the
oath of enlistment you took, or it violates the UCMJ (Uniform Code of Military Justice).
Shooting civilians that have not offered deadly force (even though they may be armed), and are NOT in a "nuclear exclusion zone" (this is an area
where nuclear weapons are housed. Deadly force is ALWAYS authorized in an exclusion zone. I know as I used to stand watch in one with a loaded weapon,
and a sign that actually said that deadly force is authorized....), would be considered an "Unlawful Order"
But forget the military for now (you would need them to join up), the main problem is that the majority of Americans won't suddenly rebel. Things
would have to get much, much worse.
I hate taxes myself. I hate seeing things change in a direction I don't like. But for now? I live on my own 10 acres of land, grow food, and yah, if
I want to build a chicken coop, I can just fine,because I live in the county and not the city limits where zoning laws are stricter.
you can't build a bigger chicken coop in the city. But if you could, do you know what your neighbors would do? They'd be at your door having their
OWN rebellion against you. Do you have any idea how much noise and smell chickens make? I do. A LOT!
There's a REASON for zoning laws.
Oh, and I can make 200 gallons of beer and 100 gallons of wine with no license required as long as it's for my own consumption or as gifts. If I want
to sell it, yep, I have to get a license. But selling it would be work. I make it for fun.
But if they ever come back and say I can't? Then I'll look you up and sign up for your revolution then!
