    "And it would be perfectly legal, because we choose our presidents through the Electoral College, and there are very few rules about how the electors are allocated. Make no mistake: This is a war on the very concept of democracy and republic."

    OK, I know that what I'm going to say will sound like it's coming from a Republican whackjob.  But THAT is not what I am, believe me!

    There is no other way to put it; the Republicans are out of control.  And they have the court system in their hip pockets -- from the Supreme Court on down.  In view of that, it looks to me like the only way to stop them is through an armed rebellion, unless someone can come up with a better plan.

    In view of that, instead of fighting for gun control -- which will never come to pass, given Harry Reid and other Democrats presently in the House and Senate -- how about us getting our own guns?  And then when the Republicans cross the line -- which they will do inevitably -- we simply run our own replay of 1776 -- our own revolt against tyranny?

    I know that this is an awful idea.  But if someone can come up with a better one,, and a peaceful, rational way to achieve what armed violence could achieve, I am more than willing to hear it out.  The whole point is, SOMETHING HAS TO BE DONE, and we'd better start thinking about how to do it.
