Former blogger (Stuck on the Palmetto and South Florida Daily Blog) now plying his words in Twitter under @SFDB and former troll of this blog. Rick is very much attuned with the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence’s insurrectionist meme and thinks himself as a defender of the Government which is understandable within reason since he allegedly works for the FAA. He is one of those Liberals that wax philosophically about the poor, the downtrodden and the need for equality while telling us about cuisine , exciting cars, noble spirits and travels. Basically the typical Lib that if he ever bumps into a homeless, he’d probably go into hysterics, demand an immediate tetanus shot and would burn his clothes.
Now, since I banned him from this blog, he asked me the following via Twitter:
This was a response of my previous post CSGV still does not get this country and I will proceed to give him an answer:
: to plan secretly to do something usually illegal or harmful.
Damn it Rick! Are you really that dense? What is so secret about what I write in my blog? I do not have a Members of Secret Plotting Society Log-In section, Do I? There goes the whole plot thing down the drain. Try harder next time!
: to remove (someone or something) from power especially by force.
You mean like the stunt they pulled over Texas on Governor Rick Perry that even the New York Times (which I would almost be you are subscribed to the Sunday edition) said “appears to be the product of an overzealous prosecution.”?
Oh, I know in your hearts of hearts you mean if we all are gonna jump in our Rebel-and-Gadsden-Flag-Waving pick up trucks and storm the local FBI building whole shooting our Evil Black Rifles from the hip and shit like that? Nope. Claire Wolfe said: “America is at that awkward stage; it’s too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards.” but I am a bit more optimistic than that since (at least on the Second Amendment front) we have done wonderful things within the system which I know keep up at nights crying into your pillow.
After that long preview, let us get to titanium tacks, shall we?
Dear Rick: Just because a government is elected, that does not mean is immune to any criticism and even prosecution. Just because they got the majority vote, does not mean they are infallible or incapable of wrongdoing or malice. Stalin was properly appointed to power by the Central Committee, Robert Mugabe was elected president of Zimbabwe over and over and over…you get the idea. Hugo Chavez was also elected and “given” extraordinary powers by the “people.” Juan Peron fucked up Argentina seven ways from Domingo but was elected and re-elected democratically. Hell, there are all kinds of sick dictators that arrived to power via the democratic vote but they could have used a fast and proper exit.
Now, are we in the same position as Argentina, Venezuela Zimbabwe, etc? No, The answer is that simple. Are we starting to head that way? Some (a lot?) of us think so, specially those who lived in countries like that as we are hearing the same political BS, implementation of programs and disregard for the rule of law and the rights of the citizens by those in power.
I know you guys keep calling it a democracy, but we are not a democracy, we are a constitutional republic founded by people who went against the legitimately instituted government of the time. Surprise! The Founding Fathers were insurrectionist! In your world, they would have to be arrested and sent to prison immediately.
So the question you should have asked was : Do you believe that Americans have the right of dispose of a government that has failed to follow the law, that have abused the powers derived from the consent of the governed and have engaged in other abuses and usurpations that may led to despotism? You betcha. It is up to the failing government to choose how they will be vacating the premises, because they will. It is our right to help them.

Well said, my friend. If I bumped into him I would burn my clothes and jump in a tub of flea dip.
‘habit of backing off your posts (snic)’? Really? Just another example of an anti-gunner making up their own reality to fit their personal prejudices and biases.
He is still pissed off he overextended himself in Twitter, libeled me and I have been demanding an apology.
“No-one is above the code. ESPECIALLY the king.”
It’s just that instead of an immortal dragon with a link directly to said king’s heart, we have a 2nd Amendment.
Which may actually be more effective.
One of the fails that the anti-gun folks continue to repeat is the belief that the Government is somehow the Country. They call any talk of physically removing politicians, or heavens forbid, Obama from office as “treason”
Last time I checked, Treason was acts of sedition against the country. Overthrowing an illegal government is not an act of treason.
Repeatedly violating the constitution, and using the authority of your office for your own personal agenda is.
The CSGV specifically believes one can be a traitor to the government:
Miguel, i sincerely praise you in how you have so much patience dealing with trolls.
I see no point in waxing eloquent on my own. Other gentlemen already did so, long ago (emphasis added):
I weep for the state of public school systems, that he doesn’t know this already. Thank God our kids will be well-versed in American civics.
Dear Rick: Just because a government is elected, that does not mean is immune to any criticism and even prosecution. “Just because they got the majority vote, ”
I would note that few in government these days have been elected by a majority. Government itself has so poisoned the process that the ” majority” have given up on participation in electing gov. officials, what we have left are those that somehow tolerate the inane personal attacks of the political process not solid leaders and statesmen.
“Elections” barely matter anymore. And the people who would be enforcing gun confiscations if that ever occurred would certainly not be elected officials, they would be employees of domestic agencies.
