    Well, you are seeing 3 out of 4 right now.

    No real due cause for forced quarantine. This is not the first COVID virus, nor will it be the last. If the quarantine means you can't pay bills or feed your family, should you forget about those things because they don't matter? This is now the norm in many places. The only way you would find a jury of your peers is if they only allowed those who the MSM frightened or are elderly and on a fixed income.

    Fortunately in Texas we have many who have some sense. A lady opened her salon a little too early because she had to feed her kids. The liberals here went berserk, had her arrested, jailed, sentenced quickly and had a daily fine of $1k per day for all the days she was open imposed. They said shame on her for wanting to feed her kids. Fortunately the Governor and the Texas Supreme Court stepped in and stopped the madness.

    Pot shops, liquor stores, tattoo parlors and abortion centers are considered essential but churches are shut down and fined for even meeting in their own vehicles. If that ain't social distancing, I don't know what is. Churches are having to fight twice as hard to open under the same restrictions as businesses are.

    Your inalienable rights have been under assault for years.

    Let's start with the first amendment seems now to only apply if you are on the left. If you are a conservative the chances are great you will be shut down in any number of ways, including rioting. You have the right to peaceably assemble if you are a leftest. Many lawful assemblies of even people who just want to go back to work and feed their families are under attack. I could go on here but you get the idea.

    The second amendment has been under attack for way too many years, including an "assault weapons ban" in 1994. Now many states allow people to sue the manufacturer if someone is shot. Can you do that to an automaker for any death? Virginia now has the most restrictive gun ban on the record, that I'm aware of. They went farther than Kommiefornica.

    The fourth amendment went out without a whisper. Search and seizure without a warrant without anyone saying a word. Seizure of property has been mandated for any number of offenses. This can also apply to the fifth amendment. Some, like what was just exposed about Flynn are compelled to testify to things they never did for fear of family members being investigated too. Flynn had to file for bankruptcy even though the DOJ and the FBI all stated before hand that they thought there was no cause to continue. Someone upstairs decided it should continue and it did.

    I could go on here but I think I've made my point. So frankly, I think you are a blow hard. Just a complainer.

    Me, I'm just getting too damn old and my body could not handle being a front liner.

    When someone levels a gun at me or my loved ones, I will respond in kind.

    So, Jdag,
    What is your military background?
    Did you take "the oath"?
    Did you ever serve?

    Here is my limit... I swore to protect and defend the Constitution, against all enemies, foreign and domestic. A President can be a Capitalist, a socialist, even a communist, as long as he or she was duly elected....the country is not socialist or communist and as long as the constitution is adhered to and amended by proper methods, I will simply use the soapbox, jury box, and the ballot box.

    When it becomes obvious to me that our process is corrupted and needs remedy as laid out by our founding fathers...I will seek that by using the above stated boxes. If others do the same, it will become apparent to the cities and states that your process is broken or not.

    I will work with my City and State to remedy the issue. If the city and the state are the issue. Then I will work with the people to remedy them. When we the people collectively have no further recourse then we will do what we must.

    long answer over....shorter answer is....we the people can never expect to simply rise up at once and throw down Tyranny at the State and Federal level. To attempt to do so will just result in harming that movement and getting your ass locked up. But a movement to change your city then county, by being as outspoken and voracious as those that support abortion and Gay rights is definately the more effective way.

    People get really scared when Conservatives start taking to the street and getting mad. We usually have more guns among us too.

    Mine personally is if the election or appointment of a Socialist as President. This is my trigger and when I will go in to the mountains and become a partisan!

    I have reached my limit!

    Just asking to see.
    I am just curious...

    In the thread on natural gas drilling in PA you advocated for "super strict" guidelines for any oil and gas production. I presume that means you want the government to be the custodian of such guidelines.

    And you are obviously not a fan of business.

    Their business is to get the gas/oil at whatever the cost and who pays the final bill, not just the idiots who whored themselves out but everyone south of them, which I am.
    Yet, here you are in this thread talking all "Billy Bad Ass" about taking to the hills if the country duly and legally elects a Socialist. I cannot tell the difference between the policies of a Socialist president and the policies that you advocated in the natural gas thread.

    You obviously have some serious mental issues. Just a bit of friendly advice: When you start feeling frustrated or angry, just ask mom to plug in your video game before you go out on the street and do something rash.

    I have no desire to go to war. This would interrupt my retirement. I am finally enjoying myself and have plans to have more fun. War sucks. Going to visit other places would be out of the question. Having a promised cup of coffee with a friend probably wouldn't happen either.

    Did I mention that war would suck?
