    ....with the government putting down an insurrection.

    Sorry, that shit might fly where you're from, but most of the country would say "wipe 'em out, now"

      If there was really an armed insurrection, a group of people would be attacking government buildings and personnel to take them over.

      Remember Ft. Sumter?

      We tried civil war once, it didn't turn out so well for the guys that wanted to overthrow the tyranny of the federal government.

      and the shut down using para-military robo cops and Homeland Security working in conjunction with majors and banksters  certainly did not incur any major public outrage. The US population has little regard for 'insurgents' resistor's, protesters even of the non violent variety. Facing a line of robo cops in full metal dress at an OWS event showed me that there was no way in hell that the police were going to 'join the people'. This society just loves the shock and awe of violence especially when it is deployed against the pesky folks who want to end tyranny and injustice. Law and Order even if the law isn't legal.
