So what do you think about 'Operation Jade Helm '?

All I know is that I put absolutely nothing past the government of the US, however I do not think Obama could get enough supporters to pull off Martial Law! Even his own secret service people wouldn't take a bullet for him! Look how many security incidents at the White House there has been since he moved in, lol!

Want to bet?

I guarantee the secret service would take bullets for him. As far as martial law-absolutely he could if it was called for.

I know this might surprise you, but his favoribility rating is at 46%. And the "security incidents"? That has more to do with whackadoodles being whackadoodles.

The problem with most of the right wing militants is that a minority of them are truly crazy.

The majority of them are genuine people concerned about a low probability event, and preparing for it. They have legitimate concerns about where the country is going. The minority that are truly crazy are what tarnishes good intentions.

I would agree with this for the most part.

It is easy to judge whole groups based on the actions of a few. I make an effort not to, sometimes I succeed and other times I fail.

mil·i·tant
ˈmiləd(ə)nt/
adjective
1.
combative and aggressive in support of a political or social cause, and typically favoring extreme, violent, or confrontational methods.


rogue - adjective - no longer obedient, belonging, or accepted and hence not controllable or answerable; deviating, renegade:

Seems to be a distinction without a difference.

BlackLivesMatter qualifies as a group of militants.
