    What is the scenario likely to happen?

    I don't think idiots declaring themselves to be sovereign would cause anyone any concern.

    And I think those nutcase sheriffs who are going to selectively ignore Federal laws will find themselves facing legal issues in Federal courts.

    No amount of violent or anti-government rhetoric will prompt a reaction.

    But with that escalating rhetoric, my hunch is that problems are inevitable.  I bet there will be organized violent "guerrilla" conspiracies a la Timothy McVeigh.  Government facilities and employees are probably at their greatest risk since 9/11.

    Indeed, these were McVeigh's words but they sure are commonplace today...and there are sure are a lot of people with the same complaints.

    Taxes are a joke. Regardless of what a political candidate "promises," they will increase. More taxes are always the answer to government mismanagement. They mess up. We suffer. Taxes are reaching cataclysmic levels, with no slowdown in sight. [...] Is a Civil War Imminent? Do we have to shed blood to reform the current system? I hope it doesn't come to that. But it might.

    The government is afraid of the guns people have because they have to have control of the people at all times. Once you take away the guns, you can do anything to the people. You give them an inch and they take a mile. I believe we are slowly turning into a socialist government. The government is continually growing bigger and more powerful and the people need to prepare to defend themselves against government control.
    The NRA is a strong and proud supporter of arming domestic terrorists.
