The Alamo was lost , and so was Lexington/Concord , but both set off a **** storm that changed history , many more examples . You as an individual may loose , but that loss may be what changes you nation and people for the better in the long run . Just Sayin .
Doing a John McCain , with your hands in the air , achieves nothing but a passive and unintentional consent to tyranny . Believe me when I say this , we are all safe and sound in our protective life here at home , but the world is starting to get sick of the US government and its constant interference in global affairs . If a civil war did actually happen here , other nations would most likely get involved , perhaps not overtly , but instead , do what we do all over the place , send special teams of advisors to train rebels , that could be very dangerous for them , but possible .
