The difference between an unarmed man and a man with a rifle is diddly squat if he's going up against a government with tanks, jets, nukes, etc.
Except for the examples I gave that you danced around..... I hope it`d never come down to that but it beats the crap out of bending over and just letting it happen. Now tell me how revolution are alway a clear cut fight between civs and the army.
"When the revolution comes, they're not going to fight for the left; they`ll be on OUR side."
1: They`re trained to follow their orders. Are you saying the American military is not well-trained? 2: Right-wing extremism can exist too, and we both know that when a government gets truly extreme, the actual flavour of the government becomes rather meaningless; it`s so far removed from its milder cousins as to be completely unrelated.

OldOllie, you cannot compare a fascist form of government with a liberal one. What do you mean I cannot? I just did! Of course Hitler and the Nazis opposed Stalin and the Communists. They were just two big dogs fighting over the same bone. Their political philosophies, however, were nearly identical: boss people around and take their stuff. Both ended up exterminating millions of people. What's so different about them?
Yes, I know your liberal teachers told you that Nazis and communists are opposite ends of the political spectrum, but I`m telling you that`s bull$#!+. They`re the same damned thing.
The difference between communists, socialists, Nazi`s, fascists, progressives, and liberals is like the difference between vanilla, natural vanilla, home-style vanilla, French vanilla, hand-cranked vanilla, and soft-serve vanilla.
