I don't really know how seriously to take this, but here's a question from the latest Fairleigh Dickinson poll. Apparently, nearly half of all Republicans believe that we might need an armed revolution in the near future to "protect our liberties." Hell, even a fifth of Democrats think the same thing. Is this the effect of brain rot caused by listening to Rush and the NRA too much, or is it just a bit of harmless affinity mongering? I'm not sure. Either way, though, I'd sure like it a lot better if this number were somewhere south of 5 percent.
