If some time in the future the government ignores the constitution to a point that causes civil uprisings, it looks as though the groundwork has been lain to deal with insurrection with armed drone strikes. Considering the funding and authorization for the use of 30,000 drones has been approved, I would say any resistance would be a bloody endeavor.
Not much doubt about that.
You will never know how much it has cost my generation to preserve your freedom. I hope you make good use of it.

No, I'm not but I'll check it out. Star Parkers site, yes. I borrowed the picture and pasted it on another firum I'm on, a local one with lots of dissention.
I try to stay away from mainstream discussions. I'm only on a few fiorums, this being the only firearm forum mainly because I'm a bolt rifle person and I like Len. He's a very straight up guy in my opinion.
I prefer to be looked at as a poster, SidecarFlip, devoid of any reference of being different from the majority on this site or any site for that matter. I mentioned it only in a passing way as a reply to a comment. Nothing more.
I was born in Florida but I grew up in Cleveland, Ohio, a very racially polarized city at that time. My parents were pretty well to do so we didn't live in the inner city but there was always the subliminal racial tension present. In school, in outside activities, in public, so I learned at a young age to avoid confromtation, something I try to practice even today.
The Internet and forums like this make it easy to interact without prejudice appearing. It may be there but because it's forbidden, it never shows up. You can be devoid of color and still put forth an opinion or state facts, no one really knows what color you are because they can't see you.
It's fairly easy to live in a white man's world so long as you avoid racial confrontation. My wife understands that perfectly.
I like it that way.
Thanks for the links.
It wasn't always so; but, today the fight to preserve freedom is colorblind, the following is a comment on Star's website, we're all in this together:
"Tyranny knows no color, no religion, no gender. It is spawned from evil. Our founding fathers studied and studied human nature in order to create a government with limited power so tyranny could not raise its ugly head. We the people have let our government get totally out of hand and now we feel defenseless to stop it.
We need to join one another to strengthen our position of freedom and liberty from excessive government! Star Parker is one of us who has a voice and she is using it, thank God."
I surely don't want (or desire) to live anywhere else but right here in what is still the best place on earth to live and I look at the NRA as having the 'best shot' if you will, in maintaining our freedoms even though I find it arcane that we, as a group are fighting to maintain something that the Constitution grants all of us, without question.
That, in itself tells me just how evil Obama and his elite minions are. At least in my perspective, the actions of the Washingtom elite and state governors are acts of treason against this country.... and the media condones it, well, did. I see an awakening by the media to a certain extent and thats not all bad.
The general populus takes everything the media puts in front of them as gospel, if, in fact, it's true or not.
I'm planning on attending the NRA convention in Houston, hope to see some of your there. Besides, I need a break from the vile weather we have been having here.
