They want to, I can assure you. The reason the government doesn’t send police and soldiers to subdue the people is that if they tried that, then they are no longer the government. That’s why the constitution is designed the way it is: should the government violate our rights, it isn’t the government anymore. Ours is a government of the people, by the people, and for the people. The soldiers and police are on our side.
