The question is, when a duly elected government encroaches upon and neglects principles of the previous, do the People have the political power to do something about it?

Petitioning the White House is nothing, talking about it blogs is nothing. That man has some seriously fanatical followers, that is worrisome. Also, I'm sure Ron Paul absolutely loved having his name dragged into that boat of crazy. Maaaaaaaaan what the dude won't do for a dollar, he is going to get some poor imbalanced person killed.edit on 16-11-2012 by Kali74 because: (no reason given)

That said... I believe it's right in the founding documents of the USA that once the government becomes corrupt and no longer serves the will of the people it was elected to govern, it is the DUTY of every american to over throw that government and create a new one. I also believe this is the directive that ties in with your right to bare arms.
The right to bare arms and the need to have a trained and armed militia is to create a bulkhead AGAINST the government becoming tyrannical.
