The Remainder Written by Fred Ermlich, Dec 12

There comes a time. I noticed that some Americans read the horrible news that Mr. Haque brings them and they say, unconsciously passively, that “Somebody should do something.” Well somebody has to say it, so I will. It means out and out war. A civil war. Americans against Americans. Revolution.

See the 100+ soldiers in that image? What if, based on strategies developed for them by soldiers educated at West Point, they made a surprise raid on a deliberately chosen government target — maybe a state capitol in one of those terrible racist states.

What if at the same moment there were 160,000 similar groups of 100 soldiers — all making surprise attacks on selected targets. An American revolution before the country can go down in flames otherwise.

With 334,000,000 citizens (or population), let’s cut that in half. That’ll separate out the wicked Republicans and idiot religious nuts. That’s 167,000,000 — so let’s take one in a hundred of them as fit for armed duty, and that gives us 1,670,000 soldiers available to successfully revolt against the current government and write a new Declaration and Constitution, probably aiming for a more socialistic state like most of the rest of the world.

Don’t get to thinking it won’t get messy. You’re gonna have to shoot a lot of gun-toting Republicans and Trumpists.

A revolution only works out if you win. So . . . win. Conscript more troops if you must.

After the new government is installed you might consider more rigid gun laws.

Start looking for West Point graduates. Preferably liberal ones. There are also some quiet but existing pro-revolution liberals and organizations in the U.S. Find them.

If you want my help you’ll have to ask. I’ll be 69 next month and less of a warrior than I used to be. But the death of America will cause a cascade of economic and political failures. A lot of people will die.
