All I have to say is when the SHTF, we better hope our military sides with the people and not some dictator in chief. It will make Lincoln’s CW slaughter of hundreds of thousands look trivial

That's the $64,000 question. How much of the military will side with us. I guess most of it will side with us, maybe it is hopeful thinking. I'd like to see a breakdown comparing the different services like the Coast Guard, Army, Air Force, Marines, Navy. How about the National Guards of various strips, the Reserves? I'm just pulling a number out of my gut level guess but I would maybe say you might see a 75/25 split in our favor. I can by wrong and your mileage may vary. Many other variables in the pie will be things like the Texas Rangers, various State Police, local police, unorganized militias, small groups, lone wolves and so on.

To confuse things more, you might have outside nations and groups in opposition to us as well as support. You will have others fighting too, the radical Islamists that I mentioned will not put up wit this BS. I doubt a lot of the Serbians will, neither the Basques, or even the Russians and so on.
