Great point

The general war against the general government paradigm is a surefire way to lose. But the notion of arresting and/or neutralizing criminal elements, based on an explicit declaration that outlines the violations, would be a savvy approach. This would define THEM as the aggressors and the patriots as people trying to restore order using the least amount of force possible.

It also gives a specific objective, rather than mere resistance....Like it says in The Art of War, the side with the most well-defined objective has a tremendous advantage, because they can use their resources most effectively.
