This is, at its core, the gun nuts’ central tenet. Not that governments generically shouldn’t be trusted. But that our government in particular is evil and must be stopped at all costs. It’s philosophical terrorism that far too often leads to the real thing, whether it’s a shot-up movie theater by a guy dressed like Rambo, or a blown up federal building. It far too often comes down to the individual in question thinking they are the last defense against tyranny.
The problem we face as a nation is that the men who control today’s Republican party neither trust, nor particularly like, most of America, or Americans. If you truly see a commie and a Nazi around every corner, then you’re obviously not very thrilled with where you live.
The Republicans don’t have a problem with Obama, they have a problem with America.
