  •  It's not a Question of Whether it Can Happen (0+ / 0-)

    But whether you acknowledge trolls by biting at their (the right-wing nuts)  bait.

    My problem with their whole premise is this notion of "the people" as though THEY are the people and THEY have the right to tell the MAJORITY of the people they are under a tyranny.

    It's obfuscation. Yes. There is some hypothetical distant future where it's a possibility. There are thousands of hypothetical futures, with various outcomes, and as many with a utopian conclusion as apocalyptic.  

    We don't need to know what the future is to know that at present we are so far from anything tyrannical that we can't responsibly use the word in the present conversation.
