They've been trained by US governments. They are expert killers. They believe that the principles espoused in the US Constitution are actually worth defending. They've been patient, but have had enough tyranny. And now they are looking to kill. Who? Those who work for US governments. Do you blame them? Have you thought about what you will do when (not if) it starts?


And yet, as he freely admits, the hypothetical enemy - the target he's teaching the people gathered here today to kill - is a US soldier.

Why? Cochran says he is simply exercising his constitutional right to assemble an armed civilian force that is prepared to fight any enemy, be they domestic or foreign. There are 27 men in Cochran's squad including, apparently, both former and serving soldiers, policemen and members of the sheriff's department.

This didn't surprise me. I'd already read about Richard Mack, a former sheriff of Graham County, Arizona, who now travels the country 'crusading for freedom and individual rights' and insists 'the greatest threat we face today is not terrorists; it is our own federal government'.

The militias, which are dotted throughout the US and, according to recent figures, are growing rapidly in numbers, claim they are bulwarks against tyranny...

'The Democrats are running towards socialism at 100 miles an hour and Republicans are only running 60,' he said. 'They'll all get to the same damn place eventually. Our job as militia is to re-establish the government in a way George [Washington] and the boys intended. And to do that we can't go and hide in the bushes; we have to take active participation in the overthrow that Thomas Jefferson point-blank told us was our duty as Americans.'

...Their opposition to federal government is what distinguishes them from the militias of old, which were designed to aid the government, rather than fight them, in the event of a national emergency...

'Jefferson himself anticipated a violent revolution every 75 to 100 years. We're running a little behind schedule,' he says. 'The last thing I want to do is look down the sights of my rifle at another American - that would be the most sickening prospect I could dream of - however, I'm a realist. I can pray all day long that this won't take place but I'm not stupid enough to think it never will.'

...American officers will be executed by bullet. Foreign fighters, mercenaries or civilians employed by the US government to carry out its work will be 'hoisted and hung'.

The truth behind America's 'civilian militias.' Armed and extremely... patriotic. Why a growing number of Americans are preparing for a war against their government

About braincrave


We all admire beauty, but the mind ultimately must be stimulated for maximum arousal. Longevity in relationships cannot occur without a meeting of the minds. And that is what Braincrave is: a dating venue where minds meet. Learn about the thoughts of your potential match on deeper topics... topics that spawn your own insights around what you think, the choices you make, and the actions you take.

We are a community of men and women who seek beauty and stimulation through our minds. We find ideas, education, and self-improvement sexy. We think intelligence is hot. But Braincrave is more than brains and I.Q. alone. We are curious. We have common sense. We value and offer wisdom. We experiment. We have great imaginations. We devour literacy. We are intellectually honest. We support and encourage each other to be better.

You might be lonely but you aren't alone.

Sep, 2017 update: Although Braincrave resulted in two confirmed marriages, the venture didn't meet financial targets. Rather than updating our outdated code base, we've removed all previous dating profiles and retained the articles that continue to generate interest. Moving to valME.io's platform supports dating profiles (which you are welcome to post) but won't allow typical date-matching functionality (e.g., location proximity, attribute similarity).

The Braincrave.com discussion group on Second Life was a twice-daily intellectual group discussions typically held at 12:00 PM SLT (PST) and 7:00 PM SLT. The discussions took place in Second Life group chat but are no longer formally scheduled or managed. The daily articles were used to encourage the discussions.
