    We know our military is infested with Christianists, like in the Air Force Academy.  What happens if all those gun owning Christians decide they're sick of gay marriage?  And they lead a military/police coup to overthrow every Dem politician?  And it's them murdering public officials?

    They know they can get away with it, because who's going to stop them?  Right now there are 300 million armed civilians. And as unlikely as you find it, that is the only real check against military power.

    I'm not prepared to just surrender to the military, even though you think we already have.
