In the next few years, an armed revolution might be necessary in order to protect our liberties.

I'm sure they are too. After all I moved out, put myself through school, and took on my own health insurance at 21. I didn't need the government to tell me I should ride my parents policy until 25.

Meh not mediocre by today's standards. Maybe 30 years ago when self responsibility and accountability were more prelavent. Would you like to shake my hand? I'm a dying breed...

That poll is/was completely worthless if it even happened in the first place. I call BS.

These "polls" would be a lot better if said institutions posted their data and how, in detail, they've come up with their figures.

Transparency is key. Otherwise I don't give any weight to them. It is amusing though how some people take it on blind faith and use them for the bases of their assertions without applying critical thinking.

What's worrisome is not the number that said yes, but the surprisingly low number that said "no"

Of course they never asked "Would you be willing to take up arms against these armed revolutionaries who are attempting to by-pass the constitution and kill them without mercy to protect and defend the constitution that they are attempting to by-pass."



There is a system to change things if you don't like them. You think you are "better than that"...well then, all bets are off.

Nor would you now, it only says that you could if you so freely choose to do so should you be, say, working towards an advanced degree.

Different strokes for different folks. The MBA will come in a few years on the company's dime.

I think both. Gun Companies Run the NRA. It's to their advantage to stoke up fear so that they can continue to sell their STEEL.
