A funny read and even funnier attempt to fear monger. If the people listed as sources knew what they were talking about they would not have made so
many mistakes, like referring to the NDAA as an executive order (its part of the 2012 funding authorization bill for DoD operations and is a law from
Congress, not an EO).
As a member of Law Enforcement, as well as having family members in law enforcement, we have seen absolutely nothing directed towards law enforcement
int terms of being prepared for a civil war.
Secondly to assume every single member of the military / Government / Law Enforcement at ALL levels of government would just receive their orders and
act on them without question is naive. The actions being described in that fear monger piece leaves out several key elements, starting with the fact
the President would need to label a state as being in a state of rebellion / insurrection to even have authority to issue orders to guard units.
Has anyone thought that maybe the article is meant to foster resentment towards the government / military / law enforcement? If it appears the
population is going after the government, and not the other way around, it would be extremely easy to justify draconian laws that would not be
constitutional, allowing for a state of emergency / martial law to be declared?
Before buying into this crap hook line and sinker do some research. Speak to your local law enforcement agencies... Participate in your government at
all levels and be heard. Don't take one article and assume its telling the truth.. If people take a step back and read the article, and then think
about what elements would be required for the government to exploit a situation and be successful, a different picture emerges.
Articles that specifically target hot points, specifically place inflamatory information into the article designed to specifically piss people off,
and to name drop the government, specifically agencies that are not high on the peoples list, it comes across as intentionally trying to incite the
people into action.
An action the government could use to justify taking action as a response to, instead of going first.
Common sense... relax..... do research.... be involved.
What is a civil war? The last civil war in the US was fought over States Rights. What specifically is occurring, and who is it occurring to, that
would force us down the road from the 1860's?
Any type of flair up is not going to be north verse south, states rights verse slavery...
Its going to be citizens vs Federal government. Who in their right mind is going to take up arms against their neighbors in order to protect a federal
government who have been spending citizens money like drunken yuppies?
Think the hypothetical all the way through and ask yourself those questions...
