I don't want to see war on US soil anymore than the next guy. Wanting to see that happen just isn't right. But I have watched for the last 25-30 years as our rights have been eroded like a hillside eaten away by hydraulic mining, and I think that ANY freedom-loving American ought to recognize that if we don't do anything, there won't be much in the way of freedom to hand down to our kids/grandchildren, assuming that they don't get totally brainwashed by the leftists in schools. The leftists for the last 50 years have been drooling at the prospect of disarming us so they can put conservatives into concentration death-camps. I know this because of guys like Larry Grathwohl, who have gone inside radical leftist groups to spy on them, and I know because of my own personal conversations with radical leftists where I've lived most of my life, in Gary Indiana. These people are as serious as a massive heart attack. They WANT to kill TENS OF MILLIONS of people who refuse to accept their way of thinking! It's too out-there to not be real; yes truth is stranger than fiction.
If people are that hell-bent on eliminating everyone that disagrees with them (and they're not some tiny minority), then I think it behooves us to be well-armed, well-trained, and well-prepared. Because either we ignore the loonies and deceive ourselves into thinking they'll just 'go away', or we prepare for the day when they will need to be dealt with. Again, I don't want war; but likewise I don't want to stand before my Creator, Almighty GOD, and have to explain to Him why I did nothing to protect and defend the LIBERTY that He gave us all!!
