Evil Omens?

Homeland security buys 450 million rounds of ammo.  The Social Security Administration orders 174,000 rounds of .357 rounds, and NOAA orders 46,000 rounds.  Should we be concerned?  First of all, the first one is probably overstated.  They have an open contract over a long duration.  This is probably the maximum number of bullets they can order over the life of the contract.  We only have 311 million.  That’s more than one round per person.  I’d like to think that they wouldn’t need that much ammo.  NOAA claims clerical error.  However, it has come to light that the Army has started training for an insurrection in 2016.  Needless to say, anything we discuss would be pure speculation at this point.  I’m guessing that’s when everything hits the fan and we have drastic cuts to Social Security and Medicare among other things.  In this scenario, they fear riots like in Greece.  I, for one, don’t believe the bulk of us are rioters.  We didn’t riot (at least en masse) during the Great Depression, did we?

So that leads me to a question: when is insurrection okay and when should it be put down?  If you read the Federalist Papers, they do say it is okay to rebel.  Remember, they had just done so.  So here is the thing:  The people have the right and obligation to rebel against a tyrannical government in order to restore the Constitution.  The Army has the obligation to support the people in this matter.  If the people were seeking to overthrow the Constitution, the Army would have the obligation to fight the people.  Members of the military can tell you.  They do not defend America.  They do not defend Americans.  They do not do the bidding of the President or other politicians.  Their sole duty is to defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.  As long as they remember that, everything will be okay.

I believe in the Constitution, and I believe in our military which is made up of patriotic Americans.

Long Live the Constitution!
