Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I was starting from the assumption that people who like playing with guns and don't like the bad old fed would be first to go on the offensive if TSHTF.

Also, many of them are right wing cranks with some overlap with the Tea Party.

I agree they're not the effective resistance they seem convinced they are.

They might make good brownshirts for an ambitious general, however.

... the Tea Party "movement" is, after all, a creation of the Oil Industry and other such corporate vested interests, but that is not guarantee that they will remain subservient to corporate interests if the right reactionary populist comes along to tap the possibilities that they represent.

It would not be the first time that those who sought to sow the wind reaped the whirlwind.

I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.
