While I am nearly despondent that I may somehow be responsible for pointing out the turd in the punchbowl of the many victory dances taking place now that OpFor has been thoroughly trounced...
You (and I) are not the first rodeo for FedGov dealing with domestic "problems".
War on Drugs.
War on Crime.
Those pesky Rebs from south of the Mason-Dixon.
Those pesky redskins of the non-NFL variety.
FedGov has been sharpening knives against real problems since FedGov came into existence and was hijacked by Evil men.
The only reason we did not all die (and those of us on the ground know it) over Barry-cades, and the only reason every Patriot at Bundy did not die in the desert, and why every Patriot at the Foley Building did not die in that concrete canyon that is the plaza is very simple - the Evil men in command have not yet chosen to unleash Hell.
Dance if you will. Think the forces of Evil are intimidated, if you will. Delude yourself, if you will.
Here are two very brutal realities:
One: The Enemies of Liberty believe they have the physical means to crush Liberty at their whim.
Two:The Enemies of Liberty will act on that belief, when they choose to act.
On that day, Patriots will be slaughtered.
What happens on the next day is the only current unknown.
If you consider yourself a Patriot, you'd better be living every moment as if you expect to be Target Zero on D-Day at H-Hour.
If you make it to Day Two - Godspeed.
They mean to have a war.
They are not afraid. They are insulated by the same arrogance that permits Patriots to believe FedGov is afraid. The Evil Men will only know fear when they understand they were wrong in their first assumption.
If they are wrong...
