If the answers are "no" to the first 2 options, the only viable alternative to me seems to be it is to go up someday against the police or the army.

I find that troubling. What is the signal, akin to Paul Revere riding with his lanterns, that my neighbor Joe the Plumber should rush out with his gun into the streets?

who cares? people dont worry about the cops running about with firearms in hand, when cops are not even constitutional. the populace are supposed to be policing themselves, not relying on cops to do their dirty work.

Just remember that anarchy is just a heart beat way with an out of control militia or gang of armed angry people.

A dollar and a cup of coffee is worth more than the narrow minded post you left here. Give us some facts............

Is this Obama ? It sure sounds like his arrogance and insane egotisticle rants ? Maybe Pelousi ' no she couldn't be still or sober long enough to write all that out ' ?

"If they bring knives, you bring a gun " . " clinging to their guns and religian " .

ME, I ,ME ,I ,ME , I will bring home our troops, instead he put them on watch list and increased the war .

no need to provide you with anything, I listed the quotes from our founding fathers on what the militia is actually supposed to be.

I prefer more modern methods. Truthfully, I don't see what it is your trying to get across. OK, there are some fringe groups out there calling themselves 'militias'. There are also legitimate citizen groups that actually are militias. These are the ones you don't see on CNN running around in pieced together 'uniforms' and thinking that merely being armed means they are prepared. My family and I live in a pretty rural area. Folks herebouts stick together, help each other, and are always prepared. Firearms are just one piece of a large puzzle in this regard, and anti government sentiment, end of the worlditis and racial separatism don't have a THING to do with any of it. Should the need arise, the event of a natural disaster being at the top of the list, there is a pretty fair group of us that can put together a workforce to get through it. Yes, we are all armed, but more importantly, we have food, sources of fresh water, medical supplies, fuel stores, people with actual medical knowledge, means of communication, emergency shelter, sanitary supplies etc. Call this an 'independent militia' if you will, we call it a 'protective association'. Hardly a band of would be rebels without a clue, and we don't run around the desert training for armageddon either. It's just a practical alliance of neighbors and friends who, if we need to, can get through a bad situation, which we have had to do, once because of a flood, twice because of fires, and once because of some scumbags who, in the name of the environment, were blowing s*** up and shooting cattle. The FBI and BLM rangers gave us a hand with that ...little problem, and they had zero issue with us putting out guards, on horseback, till they caught the rodents. Lucky for them it was the Feds who caught them in the end. If this is a contemptable thing to you, so be it, but, this is what I consider an 'independent militia'. So, you will have to forgive me if I am a tad defensive about your generalized viewpoint. Such things, properly organized and realistically structured, have their place.

The cockroaches that make up the independent militias operate outside of law at all times.

Sr cockroach wants his own million man army ,probably look like the milllion man march only with lots of amnesty recipiants in the mix . Why , what makes him think he will be in there for more than 8 yr.s ?

Another un-answered question .

4 years, but I expect our current dictator will order martial law before he gets froced out of office.
