In my opinion, we are very close to finding out who would resist the government. As I pointed out to eyeeatingfish in a post above, if only 1% of 1/4 of the total population in the U.S. chose to resist, that is potentially 750,000 resistance fighters, in other words, almost 19 TIMES the number of insurgents in Iraq at any given time. That is an impossible number for our Military to deal with in short order, possibly impossible to deal with period.....By the "rules of Counter insurgency", an occupying force generally requires an almost 10:1 superiority in numbers to be effective. Which means the occupying force must deploy 7.5 MILLion troops on the ground, or equivalent. The Globalists know this and that is why firearms are an effective deterrant.
However, you raise a valid point regarding the incremental subversion of the Constitution. If the theory on which I base my opinions is correct, and the more and more I see, the more and more I believe it is correct, the Globalists have observed the effects of their past attempts to "take over" in certain areas and the resistance met in these efforts, as well as their efforts to create their global Fascist Dictatorship. I believe that these observations have led to their concluding that the take down of the United States must be very slow and incremental. I believe that we are witnessing the "End Game" operations now and that installing Obama was critical to the potential success of these final operations. The chaotic conditions of the combined threats of global economic collapse, impending WW III and threatened Martial Law as well as the recent racial tensions introduced with the killing of Trayvon Martin, the population of the United States is likely sufficiently psychologically compromised as to largely accept Martial Law in exchange for a little percieved "security." So yes, I believe that the majority of Americans will go along to get along, just long enough to allow for an almost stealthy, but sudden disarmament of the People. I also believe that this will be carried out by Mercenaries loyal to the Financiers. I believe they learned THAT lesson back in 1934 when they attempted to recruit General Smedley Butler to lead a 500,000 man Army of Vets into D.C. to overthrow FDR!
I believe that the vast majority of Americans exist literally in a sort of brainwashed stupor, having been sedated by the most powerful propaganda machine ever created. The People have become accustomed to recieving their "News" in "sound bytes" and they believe they are informed by these sound bytes and catch phrases. The result of this conditioning is that the majority of Americans can not think critically and instead, mindlessly Parrot what they've heard on their favorite "News" programs, IF they even bother with the "News." That is why I now call what others refer to as the MSM, as the MSPM (Main Stream Propaganda Machine) because that is what it literally is. This propaganda is so effective that victims actually do defend their victimizers as in the case of many of the 99% defending the actions of the Financiers who ran up 700 trillion in gambling losses and then dumped them on us.....
We are cursed....We live in "interesting times."
