Looks like a lot of fear mongering to me. Realistically, if the federal government tried go against its citizens by trying to convince the military and local police to turn the gun on the public, for one most military hate the president. Secondly, they would be greatly outmatched by citizens and military personnel who defy those orders. I can see some things being tried by this corrupt administration but I think they would fail miserably.
There will be no change unless we keep spreading our ideas.
This isn't something that can be won by force of arms. We need information soldiers, not violence. And I'm not saying that violence will not happen, I'm saying that it will be pointless unless we continue spreading our ideas.

But I know a lot of people who think we are.
USA government has contigency plans for any event including dollar collapse, mass riots, etc. By blocking gasoline and food distribution, rebels would be forced to hole in and eat up their provision.
Only if majority will accept different ideas, then country will be changed peacefully over night. But with 75% of American adults being affirmative-action recipients, huge number of government workers and millions of new Mexicans coming, I see no reason to worry - statist state will survive even after future economic reform.
'affirmative action recipients' and "Mexicans"--
The people *I* believe are the most dangerous are those productive Americans who are, still, fast asleep--
who believe the official 9/11 story, who believe Obama won fairly, but only because 'affirmative action recipients' and "Mexicans" voted for him, and that Romney was a 'good guy' who could have turned things around, if it hadn't been for people like *us* (on DP)--
These are the dangerous people, because they believe exactly as they have been brainwashed to believe. These are the people I go to church with. They have worked hard, and they believe that the 'lower' class is the reason America is in trouble.
[Oops, I didn't realize I was responding to Liberty_First--didn't look at the name]
It would not occur to them to think that a Republican president could have started this mess that Obama is daily worsening.
it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--
(tyranny of majority) works. Since our corporatism is of two-party variety, politicians do cater to majority opinion. Women + gays + some ethnic men are 75% of potential voters. Majority of USA intellectuals too prefer government jobs, grants and tenure.
Good analysis of our current state of affairs...if we could only reach the military and the po-lice with our message we might change the outcome. I laude Sheriff Mack and the Oath Keepers for thier work in this regard, but the top brass in the military have pledged their allegance to TPTB not the people (that's how they got to "high" rank)so any change would have to be bottom up.
Furthermore, access to your monies could still be blocked by TPTB, which is reason enough to keep silver and gold coinage on hand if the SHTF.

...if we are more in danger of attacks from other countries. Also, they never seem to address all the foreign aid we give that we cannot afford to give. It appears that they don't want to even touch the subject as Paul did. Is it that important to keep giving to those countries so that they do nothing to us? If we stop giving the aid, which is likely because eventually we will not have it to give, will they want to attack? My concern is of an outside invasion. Any thoughts?
our foreign aid is like our military bases around the world. Both are used as coercion tool - threat and bribe. Otherwise, our dollar would not be accepted by other countries as gold. But look around, no other country has free-market capitalism left. Smaller countries, who are dependent on global trade, cannot have sound money today if other countries do not follow. It is a team game now. And the world is in regressive mode as it rapidly reproduces and accepts progressive idea as in progressive disease.
Even Ron Paul had made a mistake - you cannot build a free society and multiply the poor via anti-abortion laws and open borders at the same time.
not that would really put a damper on my upcoming fishing season, I'd rather be fishin!
The bold effort the present bank had made to control the government ... are but premonitions of the fate that await the American people should they be deluded into a perpetuation of this institution or the establishment of another like it-Andrew Jackson
