Re: NBC poll--Tea Party more popular that the Democrat or Republican party.
Yes, as you admit, that is a stretch. There are wackos all over the place. Though we disagree I know you are a smart person and understand that there would need to be sustained and continuous efforts for it it apply. Btw, that dude was a GWB hater, in the extreme. I think he hated Obama too.

It's anyone's guess as to whom will start such a thing, and you can't know for certain.
One reason I have this opinion is because I see it as an impossibility for there to be any movement or armed rebellion that could take an offensive stance to would even remotely challenge the federal government. I also think that and offensive stance would not be supported by the military (and rightly so as they would be treasonous) and the military would put it down, if it was even a big enough problem to even require the power of the military. I don't even think that is a possibility.
But I can see, in an extreme crisis, state legislatures pushing back on the federal government and removing their unconstitutional powers. I then believe that the federal government would back down and the balance of power between state and federal government to what it should be. We are suppose to be a Republic, you know
