Within a complex web of ideologies, most of today's armed radicals are linked by self-described Patriot beliefs, which emphasize resistance to tyranny by force of arms and reject the idea that elections can fix what ails the country. Among the most common convictions is that the Second Amendment—the right to keep and bear arms—is the Constitution's cornerstone, because only a well-armed populace can enforce its rights. Any form of gun regulation, therefore, is a sure sign of intent to crush other freedoms. The federal government is often said in militia circles to have made wholesale seizures of power, at times by subterfuge. A leading grievance holds that the 16th Amendment, which authorizes the federal income tax, was ratified through fraud.

What is so extreme about resisting tyranny through force? Typical smear article.

Dude!

It is no secret, the Redneck nation is a militia all in itself. Bigger than our national military and the majority within our national military.

I would much rather read an article about the secret world of closeted homosexual liberals that live in their parent's basements.

For all the demonization the left keeps doing to attempt to make the right appear extreme for some reason it is always the left who turns out being violent and actually filled with extremeists. Go figure. Oh, any news on that investigation into Obama's terrorist buddies Ayers and Dorne for their bombing murder involvement cold case being re-opened?

Yawn..........

Still can't find a liberal policy that will stand up to November elections. Unemployment under the liberals is over 10%, the federal budget deficit over $1 Trillion for the second year under Obama, the national debt has quadrupled under Obama.....yeah, I'd be looking for away to divert attention if I were a liberal too.....

Has a once-esteemed publication like Time magazine ever fallen so low? The JournoListers at Time are working overtime to try to paint the Tea Party and other center/right-leaning voters (e.g., most Americans) as nothing but racist domestic terrorists but their fear-mongering rhetoric is falling on deaf ears as most Americans have eyes and ears and can see for themselves that the "militia right" is hardly the threat to the America today that the nutty Obamabots and violent leftist extremists are. Obama promised "change" and Americans have seen nothing of the sort, certainly not the kind they want (health care reform? everybody loses). It's the same old, same old with them. The liberal Democrats see the writing on the wall and boy oh boy, are they running scared. Is it time to bash Palin/Beck/Fox/O'Donnell again? Yes, liberal lamestream media, keep throwing the same hateful lies against the wall, see if any of your b.s. sticks....lol.

Many who disagree with the Left's socialistic proclivities, agenda, ideology, and policies, are routinely labeled prejudiced, Neo-cons, racists, xenophobes, Right-wing radicals, rednecks, religious nutjobs, and bigots.

...and each passing decade reveals the accuracy of the observation "Liberalism is a Mental Disorder.


"Based on strikingly irrational beliefs and emotions, modern liberals relentlessly undermine the most important principles on which our freedoms were founded," says Dr. Lyle Rossiter, author of the new book, "The Liberal Mind: The Psychological Causes of Political Madness." "Like spoiled, angry children, they rebel against the normal responsibilities of adulthood and demand that a parental government meet their needs from cradle to grave."
