many of them call themselves militia, but that doesn't make it so.

Armed militias? Operating in public view? Citizens?

The difference between a true militia and a terrorist is very great. Only an idiot would see them as the same thing.

Quote:
"I ask, Sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people. To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them."
George Mason
Quote:
"A militia, when properly formed, are in fact the people themselves …"
Richard Henry Lee
Quote:
"What, Sir, is the use of a militia? It is to prevent the establishment of a standing army, the bane of liberty.... Whenever Governments mean to invade the rights and liberties of the people, they always attempt to destroy the militia, in order to raise an army upon their ruins." (Rep. Elbridge Gerry of Massachusetts, spoken during floor debate over the Second Amendment [ I Annals of Congress at 750 {August 17, 1789}])

That's what you call a terrorist, NOT a militia.

Here in America, our true militias serve the people of their state, and stand ready to defend their peoples' rights. Their main mission is to protect the Constitution, so a majority of people in this country want what they want.

well we have other names for them, like fringe groups or gangs, or even homegrown terrorists. they tend to have agendas that have nothing to do with defending the Constitution or the rights of others. many of them are nothing more than a bunch of wannabe play soldiers, that would tend to crap their pants at the sight of trouble. many of them are nothing more than hate groups that call themselves militia. those promoting violence or pushing drugs, not militia, but criminals.

those of us with common sense do know the difference and respect those who are true militia.

If a government was voted in by a majority of the electorate then they are the legitimate government. If you go against the wishes of the people because you don't like something the government does that's hardly democratic. As long as the government doesn't set up a dictatorship or similar then they can be voted out at the next election.
