I honestly feel that the only option we have, are our trusted Libertarian leaders, who believe that the States have the power and authority to challenge our federal system, by a majority.
And, if that happens, we have to remain calm and lawful, in the interim (in the face of opposition that will be pushed to the outside of the system), and, somehow, by the power of critical-thinking and true purpose, we can reestablish a Union based on the Freedoms of our Bill of Rights.

I have a concern that runs parallel with your question.
With Obama's civil defense program being signed, and with so many troops oversea's, he could use it as a shield against such a military uprissing. Who knows how many troops will be sent out. He's already beefing up Afganistan, so whats the next hot spot to require thousands of troops? Iran, North Korea, China? Any would do.
The US military is stretched and I have heard their mechanized units in the middle east will not be returning to action, requiring billions for new units of tanks,etc. So while Obama's civilian defense force is training and building up, the real military will be off fighting for who knows what unjust reason the powers to be dream up, and the troops will return to find the civil defense force standing firmly infront of the federal government.

Good point. But what it the objective was to NOT replenish our hardware? What if the reason we are increasing troop size is to get them out of the country so they wouldn't be able to effect change?
