    I mean that's pretty scary - that they say these local cops should empower themselves as local warlords with posses of militia slobs.

    This goes back to anti-federalist arguement before the passage of the Constitution - that the enumerated powers of the federal government would be denied local government and vice versa. This is where they get the idea of nullification.   But in reality  federal hurricane aid does not rule out local relief efforts, etc etc.

      It's fairly hard to come into the personal crosshairs of the head of the FBI.  But the local sheriff?  He just needs to drive past your house on election day and see the signs in your yard.

        ANd the more they talk about loving Christ the more they are into the concept of genocidal "Just War" where God winks at slaughtering their neighbors.  They are very specific about forming up into death squads.
