What’s scary about this and not addressed in the poll is there are people in this country hoping for an armed conflict. Lunatics, if you will, who believe they will be standing tall when the dust settles to rebuild the Republic… they helped tear apart. These loons define extreme far left but also extreme far right, many living on the edge of anarchy touting their belief in the Constitution.
I’m not going to name any groups or names but some have their own cult following pushing conspiracy theory behind every event that takes place in this country. They have perverted the Constitution and the Second Amendment. Here’s what wrong with their wishes of revolt:
These “revolutionaries” do not understand it will not be the civilian uprising versus the evil corrupt government army. First off you will have multiple factions fighting amongst themselves let alone the military. The nation won’t be split in half it will be many groups fighting each other for supremacy. They all will think they are right in their actions whether they are leftists, right, anarchists, green movement, military defectors etc whatever. Understand this, if things actually got that bad whether it’s 0bama or someone else in DC, he or she will call their pals in the UN to come and help. It won’t stop there, oh no no! The US is hated by so many countries around the world that are praying for the US to come apart so they can come and “help” through a “coalition”. You know the same types of coalition the US has tried to create around the world during other conflicts like Iraq & Afghanistan. It won’t be just the blue helmets “we” will have to defend ourselves against it will be the entire world. Don’t forget the US has an abundance of untapped natural resources many nations would love to get their hands on!
Now try to explain this to the extremist dopes in this nation wanting an armed revolt! They won’t listen they will just go on and on that it’s time, “time to water the tree of liberty with the blood of patriots”! It will be the destruction of the US.
Poll: 29% of Registered Voters Believe Armed Revolution Might Be Necessary in Next Few Years
By Gregory Gwyn-Williams, Jr. | CNS News
Twenty-nine percent of registered voters think that an armed revolution might be necessary in the next few years in order to protect liberties, according to a Public Mind poll by Fairleigh Dickinson University.
The poll, which surveyed 863 registered voters and had a margin of error of +/-3.4, focused on both gun control and the possibility of a need for an armed revolution in the United States to protect liberty.
The survey asked whether respondents agreed, disagreed, neither agreed nor disagreed or did not know or refused to respond to the statement: “In the next few years, an armed revolution might be necessary in order to protect our liberties”
Twenty-nine percent said they agreed, 47 percent said they disagreed, 18 percent said they neither agreed nor disagreed, 5 percent said they were unsure, and 1 percent refused to respond.
Results of the poll show that those who believe a revolution might be necessary differ greatly along party lines:
- 18 percent of Democrats
- 27 percent of Independents
- 44 percent of Republicans
The poll found that 38 percent of Americans who believe a revolution might be necessary support additional gun control legislation compared to 62 percent of those who don’t think an armed revolt will be needed.
Dan Cassino, a professor of political science at Fairleigh Dickinson and analyst for the poll, says:
“The differences in views of gun legislation are really a function of differences in what people believe guns are for. If you truly believe an armed revolution is possible in the near future, you need weapons and you’re going to be wary about government efforts to take them away.”
The poll was conducted nationally between April 22 and April 28, 2013.
