How's that Constitution thing going for you?
They think they can bear arms to prevent a tyrannical government from overruling them. They cannot. They cannot either plot in any way
In bringing that law to the attention of the members here, I was merely trying to make everyone aware that there is a law whereby you really can't talk about overthrowing the government. You really can't. It wasn't about guns, it was about talking about getting rid of the government
Create a government you can trust. What's the point of having one if you're completely left out of anything good from it?
Actually, when you think about it: No, the government does not have a right to self-preservation because its sole purpose is meant to facilitate a good and prosperous society for the people of the nation. Ideally that applies to all nations, but people being people....eh. Well, it's only up from here, right?
Government is not a living, breathing being and even if it were, it cannot work against the good of the people in preservation of itself. It is, as one will hear often in American history classes, meant to be of, for, and by the people. What happens to citizens who work against the good of others around them, in pursuit of only their well-being at the detriment of rest?
