Love the Painting and all your work. That being said, the caption for this picture is" You there, with the flag. Philip is it? You're new to our reenactment group so we'll let this slide, but next time bring a flag NOT from the 20th century. AND shut that I-phone off."

Very Nice :) But I would like to point out that you should be Civil Ensign instead of the fifty star Stars and Stripes that came about in 1960. Still very cool though:).

No, the people will not be able to defeat the government if we HAD to fight it. We have a few militias in each state, and the state has an official militia which is usually considered the "State National Guard", of which they are an exponent/detachment of the actual army, in the terms they wear the same rank, insignia, went through the same training, uniforms and same traditions. Except the President is not their direct commander in chief, the governor of the state is their commander. But in most instances our militias have their own commanders, such as the Michigan Militia, which is probably our best equipped. These militias would put up sporadic defenses, and of course the commanders in our legitimate army are more intelligent and professional and would most likely crush them in the event of war. However, the militia has its advantages over the army, and possible numerical superiority. And yes, they are like little armies all over in our country, they do no harm, have done no harm, and will most likely not do any harm, but there have been incidents in the past such as that of Kent State. The form of government you described will never happen in the united states. However we do directly vote on what happens in our communities at the lowest level, I've voted on various occasions to prevent corruption in county leadership.

As an idea is good that people can carry weapons to protect them selfs from tyrannic goverment, but in fact i think this doesnt works because if you dont like goveretn and you try to change it with weapons they will bring to you army and of course you will not be able to defend your selfs from tanks and army:/ And when you say miltia you mean a lot of small armies in the same country? wtf i consider more to a society without goverment.not a socialistic society.think about ( very generally ) we the people decide about our problems and act immediatly without representation.a lot of these small groups in every neighbour and a lot of decisions that ends up in one.The decision of the most.Now i think you will tell me that in america its acting like that but i will not believe you :P

My good Greek friend. I tell you with experience, by knowing firsthand. By living through it. That owning a gun, an assault rifle, a rocket launcher or a tank is no different than owning a baseball bat (with the intent of using it as a means for self-defense, or an instrument to kill if needed be). Your mind remains the same and the weapon merely becomes an item in your closet that you hope you will not have to use. If you will speak to a man courteous, intelligent, polite and helpful. Then you inquire as to if he owns any weapons and suddenly he becomes a killer. The purpose of the weapon IS to kill. But it is also to protect yourself, is this an evil thing? The volitious nature of our laws are implicitly designed for the well being of its constituency. Some rifles are restricted, but laws vary from state to state, and occasionally from county to county. Typically assault weapons require you to be 21 years of age (as opposed to 18), an extensive background check is required, any prior convictions of a felonious nature will thereby forfeit your right to own nearly all firearms. Notwithstanding our constitutional right to own firearms (and all means of defense and weaponry), some states have outright banned the ownership of assault weapons entirely (AK47's M16's G3's). In my household alone we own 11 guns, 3 of which are priceless heirlooms over 150 years old handed down from generation to generation, father to son. As my father was a soldier he gave me a lot of his old equipment he used in the military, and that eventually started my collection. I collect military items and guitars. Please allow me to explain this to you.

Our government was designed to take into account the fact that ALL governments at SOME POINT become tyrannical.
To ensure this does not happen, the SUPREME LAW OF THE LAND, (U.S. Constitution) afforded us the right to "Keep and bear arms".
They also afforded us the right to "Form militias".
Militias are comprised of regular American Citizens, their solemn purpose is to DEFEND THIS COUNTRY FROM THE GOVERNMENT.
In these militias they USE their OWN weapons, armor, uniforms, and have their own commanders that answer to no one, and the constitution is their rule book. Without the right to bear and keep arms this would not be possible.
These soldiers have, tanks, helicopters and various aircraft, machine guns, and even artillery and they are allowed to practice, train and associate under our constitution, they are the only thing that can defend us in the event of a government that oppresses us to an extreme extent. Given your current situation that would certify "civil war" but in my country it is a common right, like the right to breathe air and is not considered to be malign. The bloodiest war we have EVER fought, was a war against our self, it was the American Civil War, and more soldiers were killed than any other war we ever fought in. It was, however, one of the most important wars we've ever fought, and without the Union victory we would be two countries right now. If you are opposed to Capitalism, then what are you a proponent of? Socialism? Socialism seems good, and to my dismay the American people are slowly moving towards it. But I am intensely antithetic towards this form of Government. There is little incentive for competition, to do a good job. This is evident in our government today, government employees are slow, and lazy. U.S. Mail Vs. UPS. There is absolutely no comparison to the quality of work produced by the corporate organization. Capitalism utilizes primal human instincts of greed, opulence, and affluence to motivate workers. Relinquishing the hospitals to government control, pay, and otherwise allocation of funds towards these organizations would result in poor service, long waiting times, and as a result catastrophic medical fuck ups on a more frequent basis. But at least it's cheap!!


The only logical solution to this problem is not socialism, however it is quite the opposite.
The compelling factor as to the PRICE of medical service is the direct result of the "legal" issues involved in clinical operations and treatment of illnesses. If the doctors fuck up they can be sued boundlessly into a pit of debt of which is comparable to the commerce of a small city in a given month. There are many clinics that charge 20 dollars for visits, treatments and consultations. It is our government that is responsible for this preposterously expensive medical treatment services, by the act of over encumbering legislation. Is Michael Moore a foreigner? No, why would he know something that we don't? I am well aware of the misdoings of my country, I am well acquainted with these conspiracy movies, I have watched an innumerable amount of them, as they are indeed fascinating. We are all given access to the same information, Michael Moore is no exception. In his documentaries he epitomizes only the most severe intermittent cases. These things do occur, doctors are people with circumstances of their own. To base such prejudices on these allegations and cases of rarity is absurd. Wayward to your self promulgation, you manifest the peremptory characteristics of those delinquents who are opposed to anything that is considered normal, contrarily they unilaterally aggregate themselves to procure and disseminate what they consider to be nefarious. Group think is unavoidable. And you seem contented with your inexpiable hatred for us.

Of course i would like to hear your thoughts about america, its different to see it from inside.Also europe is "evil" as you said.Let me talk about capitalism and its almost the same everywhere. I will disagree with you about the rifle cause i think that a man (wherever he leaves , when he has a gun he have this to kill,its the purpose of this thing, to kill).So you can own military technology rifles?this is very strange.in my country with the situation that we have that means civil war and no one wants that :P Let me remind you that we had civil war before 50 years.Also for the medical system i know about it from the documentary of the Mr moore (i think i spell right his name) and i dont think he says bullshit.Anyway i wanted to hear your opinion because i am openminded and i like to learn the "other opinion" in everything but let me have my doubts as i have in many things even it is about things that i believe.

You truly are ignorant as to the reality of many aspects of my country, and I mean that in the least offensive way. You shouldn't be so sound in your judgments, allow me to elaborate upon some of these things just to enlighten you a little in the HOPES of swaying your disconsolate opinions about us.
Firstly, I would not eliminate the possibility that my government would "orchestrate an attack on itself as a ruse for war", since this has been done in the past with other nations. However I would not like to believe it to be true. As for our reasons for being in Iraq and Afghanistan, it is not about oil, it is more about big business which is not any less unscrupulous. Afghanistan has relatively little oil in the first place, our reasons for being there are primarily political. Europe has had many school shootings, just recently there was a shooting in Finland, and a shooting in Germany a combined deathtoll of roughly 22. The Europeans must also be evil, corrupted and horrible people because of this. This very fact illustrates how inhuman these Europeans are, and therefore I must hate them. <--- just to show you what you look like. Having a rifle (or other weapons) does not constitute a horrible or evil person, nor will most people ever use them against a human in their life time. I have been a hunter since my young years and I enjoy recreational shooting, and marksmanship. I only intend to use them against animals, and to eat the animals that I do kill. However if the need may arise I can DEFEND myself with my weapons. When I "refer" to liberty and weapons, I mean my government lets me have them unprohibited (in most cases). Rules apply to purchasing and owning a fire arm though. These rules consist of the following: You must not be a habitual drinker or documented alcoholic, you cannot have been diagnosed with a mental illness, and you cannot have been convicted of a felony. These are good rules. But criminals will get guns illegally anyway. Taking the guns away would only hinder the honest people, the people who don't intend on killing people. And I must also say that 90% of the guns I own are not designed for "killing another person", they are hunting rifles, not assault rifles. If our government does at some point become tyrannical, we will have weapons available to overthrow it, and restore it back to its previous state, this is something good about our gun ownership laws as they allow us to own fully automatic weapons, and weapons that are higher grade than the weapons our army uses. I myself own a lot of military-grade equipment. Just to talk about the medical system for a bit here, you seem to think it's as if we're heartless cold people (like what Hitler would depict the Jews as, I think you're brainwashed by some Hitler like figure to believe we're some monstrous kind of dehumanized vicious killers). To point out how wrong you are about this misconception you have about "LETTING PEOPLE DIE IN FRONT OF YOU BECAUSE THEY CAN'T PAY" for example, we have some 20 million (million, that is 1 million, multiplied by 20, that's a lot) illegal immigrants in our country. These people come to our country and have sex, so their children will be born in the USA, and their children will become naturalized American Citizens that way. Our doctors deliver these babies, and never get reimbursed. They HAVE to save you, they HAVE to operate on you if you are dying or in critical condition, they will not say "OH CAN HE PAY UP?" and just leave you to die on the side of the road, I don't get where the fuck you learned this from. Now if you are in critical condition, they will operate on you, and if you survive you MUST pay them, if you can't you will get sued, and possibly have a criminal record or something. But most people have insurance and insurance will cover most of the costs of the operations. I find your harsh opinions based on the words of ignorant assholes to be "disgusting".
