    I'm actually kinda surprised he was not arrested/served/subpoenaed today.

    I suppose there's an argument to be made for that. A lot is going to ride on how much accountability is held, both for the insurrectionists and for their enablers in the government.

    It's just really lucky they didn't actually find any legislative hostages and turn this into Cliven Bundy Standoff 2: DC Boogaloo

    This post is Rat Toes Intolerant. Also, when you met me on that trip, I weighed a lot more than I do now. COINCIDENCE? Did I start a stealthy mass transfer? Ehhhh?

    Biden 1st term

    The clock is ticking. Got 2 years to implement as much as they can, before the midterms swing some fascists back into positions where they can stymie and sabotage.

    Also, to address the "yeah but THEY HAD HELP FROM INSIDE THE GOVERNMENT" counterarguments: They always will. And you always will. "The Government" is not a monolithic entity with a single mind and purpose. As Shepherd Book pointed out, governments ARE people (themselves largely ungoverned)...

    You're only reading the parts of my post you want. I posted: " The next time another forum debate about the 2nd amendment comes up, I want people @'ing me to remember this event before they scoff at the threat posed to the federal government by an armed citizenry. " And you...

    Well, if you have nails and a hammer and the nails don't get driven, it seems the problem is not with the hammer. Which is not what was posted.

    And, if there is the thinnest of silver linings to this affair, if one asserts that where the government fears the people there is liberty, then some legislators definitely felt afraid... It's just a pity they were afraid of fascists trying to install a tyrant. Just goes to show you, everything...

    One of the things people were worried about last week was repeats of the 6th at government buildings nationwide (there was apparently intel that this could happen). The logistics of having to worry about popular insurrection defeats standing armies every time. It happened to us in Iraq, it'd...

    Keep telling yourself that. I'll hope you're right, but I don't think you are. If they weren't afraid of the guns, the 6th would have gone differently, and the security for the inauguration would have been very different.

    Unless you can turn the entirety of the nation into an occupied military camp 24/7, for the rest of time, the opportunity for this to happen again will present itself.

    I didn't say it was a good thing, it just illustrates that there's more to popular insurrection than just lining up shoulder to shoulder on one side of a field opposite a prepared and deployed entirety of the US military. Part of the government didn't, but I kind of doubt that Congress and the...
