I love your post. It details exactly why the common man would fail in a successful rebellion against the government. People like to refer to the Revolutionary War as proof that it can be done. However, that wasn't a citizens' militia doing the fighting, it was a real army, and formed within a country that had already been around for some time. It was two countries warring against each other.
Now, I will be impressed if it were revealed that there is a secret army equal in caliber to the US military, training with the same equipment, and building in size as we speak. If I see that emerge, I'll probably barely believe my eyes.
Seeking to coordinate military efforts, the Continental Congress established (on paper) a regular army on June 14, 1775, and appointed George Washington as commander-in-chief. The development of the Continental Army was always a work in progress, and Washington used both his regulars and state militia throughout the war.

200 years ago yes. It was musket vs musket, cannon vs cannon. So basically numbers would determine the outcome to an extent. Now it is firearm vs APC's, Body armor, Jdam's, helo's, drones, etc. Those are not good odds.
