    Honestly, I do not see how. I'll add that open violence in the streets of America, essentially a new civil war, would be the death of the nation as we've known it. Division and destabilization is the lefts stock and trade and violent intiidation is not something they refuse to use to make their points.

      I concur.

      I blame the left for its intolerance and propensity to use violence.

      Violence is the utmost means of the left (going back to Lenin and Stalin) to gain power. Lenin "taught" that without violence there can be no victory for the proletariat.

      Consider this a worldwide phenomenon that is hitting the US. In Europe violent acts against conservatism is a daily occurrence.

      I agree. I doubt that liberty can be regained peacefully and historically such violent actions have rarely resulted in greater liberty.
      Is "death of the nation" as we know it today a bad thing? It is a shadow of the nation that existed in 1950. That 1950 nation was a shadow of the nation that existed in 1912.
      If nothing is done, all liberty will be lost in the near future in economic collapse.

    As long as the population continues to dumb down, allows their children to be brainwashed by idiot teachers, and conservatives stand back and watch, it will be hard to avoid violence. The Cortez group is coming for our capitalism, property and mind, while not too many are speaking up with real facts. Reeducation talkes time, but it has to begin. Really, wage for theose who "schose not to work!" Earth ends in 12 yrears if we don't become a gulag state? Absurdity is accepted, because people are stupid by choice.

    For the most part, I hate violence. But when those teachers had those small children confront Senator Feinstein, I felt myself losing control. How dare they subject small children to something like this? The teachers were disrespectful to Feinstein but she handled herself admirably. She may be a Democrat but she is a United States Senator and that requires respect.

    Only if the people trying to violate both are peaceful. At some point in the process, violence will come about. Even with a Wall there will be points that doint have such protection and if the would be immigrants are blocked, they may attempt to enter by force and weight of numbers. the result would be violence. Regrettable, but there none theless.

    Seventy-Two Killed Resisting Gun Confiscation In Massachusetts.

    Military units seeking to confiscate a cache of recently banned assault weapons were resisted by elements of militia groups. Military and law enforcement sources estimate that 72 were killed and more than 200 injured before government forces were compelled to withdraw. Speaking after the clash, Massachusetts Governor Thomas Gage declared that the extremist faction, which was made up of local citizens, has links to the radical right-wing tax protest movement. Gage blamed the extremists for recent incidents of vandalism directed against internal revenue offices. The governor, who described the group’s organizers as “criminals,” issued an executive order authorizing the summary arrest of any individual who has interfered with the government’s efforts to secure law and order.

    The military raid on the extremist arsenal followed wide-spread refusal by the local citizenry to turn over recently outlawed assault weapons. Gage issued a ban on military-style assault weapons and ammunition earlier in the week. This decision followed a meeting in early this month between government and military leaders at which the governor authorized the forcible confiscation of illegal arms. One government official, speaking on condition of anonymity, pointed out that “none of these people would have been killed had the extremists obeyed the law and turned over their weapons voluntarily.”

    Government troops initially succeeded in confiscating a large supply of outlawed weapons and ammunition. However, troops attempting to seize arms and ammunition in Lexington met with resistance from heavily-armed extremists who had been tipped off regarding the government’s plans. During a tense standoff in Lexington, Army Colonel Francis Smith, commander of the government operation, ordered the armed group to surrender and return to their homes. The impasse was broken by a single shot, which was reportedly fired by one of the right-wing extremists. Eight civilians were killed in the ensuing exchange.

    Ironically, the local citizenry blamed government forces rather than the extremists for the civilian deaths. Before order could be restored, armed citizens from surrounding areas had descended upon the guard units. Colonel Smith, finding his forces overmatched by the armed mob, ordered a retreat. Governor Gage has called upon citizens to support the state/national joint task force in its effort to restore law and order. The governor also demanded the surrender of those responsible for planning and leading the attack against the government troops.

    Samuel Adams, Paul Revere, and John Hancock, who have been identified as “ringleaders” of the extremist faction, remain at large.

    And this fellow Americans, is how the American Revolution began, April 20, 1775. - A basic requirement of a dictatorship is to have an unarmed population. - History, Study it, or repeat it. - "Those who do not learn history are doomed to repeat it." - George Santayana

    NO! Liberty will not be preserved with or without violence. The Middle Easy and Asian countries teach all their men and many of their woman the art of war and fighting. We teach our young men how to pee while sitting and that it is fine to be gender challenged. In a Civil War today the South will surely win because the guns in the NE have been or will soon be banned. We kill our babies before and sometimes even after birth while other nations breed like rabbits. We learn nothing from history and the liberals refuse to teach it to our children. We are dying from an illness on the inside.

    Violence is always the result of one side being so entrenched in an ideology of feelings they are unwilling to honestly debate the topic. I see this trend (unfortunately) expanding in today's day and age - rather than contracting. For that reason, I think that the ideologues will continue to grow more and more wedded to their ideology in the face of simple evidence and common sense and will resort to any means to force the rest of us to agree with them. It's how tyrants and dictators come to power - through force.

      They have come to power because their ideas have been so widely accepted. Once entrenched the force takes over.

      But the radical leftists aren't the only ones "so entrenched in an ideology of feelings they are unwilling to honestly debate". The result is watching a disintegration in which none of the dominant sides can be supported for what they are, and yet we must choose on specific topics the best we can or go down faster.

    Yes, American sovereignty and liberty can be preserved without violence. The Founding Fathers created a constitutional republic. It begins with "We the People".....and the only method available to the individual to limit and control the tyranny of the government is through voting his conscience as a juror. A good source to learn the truth and history of jury duty is the Fully Informed Jury Association.

    It is possible if enough of the populace understood their rights to be sovereign over their own lives and simply ignored the state and all of its bureaucrats.
    However, there is not a government employee of any kind who would not kill to preserve their job which means the individual would have to shoot back.
    Also there aren't enough objectivists or individuals to populate a small town let alone stand up to the masses who believe in socialism. Even those who claim to be 'conservative' or Republican have their own favorite socialist requirement to control the economy, environment, terrorists, fiat banking, etc., that they too enslave the people. I don't think there is more than a fraction of 1% who would truly be free.
