They Seem To Have Forgot That They Are In Rebellion

Burke, August, 1776:

I do not know how to wish success to those whose Victory is to separate from us a large and noble part of our Empire. Still less do I wish success to injustice, oppression and absurdity.

I'm kinda the same way about threats to secede, although I'm specifically torn between perpetual Union and Good Fucking Riddance.

PS--Really, you're gonna go to war over the 2nd Amendment, but not, say...the 4th, or the 1st?  Then what good are the fucking guns if they only protect themselves and not the rest of our constitutional rights?

My whole lifetime conservatives have railed against "card-carrying members of the ACLU." They need guns to prevent the government from taking their guns away.

See, if they have the second, then they don't need any of the others! Women can vote if they just get armed! You can have free speech all you want if you are packin'.

Actually, they shouldn't need the second either, if they're totin' enough firepower, right?

That'd ensure the domestic tranquility!

So they'll be cool with it when the New Black Panthers show up at the polling places armed to the teeth, right?
