I'll try, but there is something I don't understand. If the professional
army remains loyal to the constitution and not the President, as you are
certain they will, then who do the people in these private redneck militias
imagine they'll be fighting? I think they just like to have fun playing
soldier on the weekend and would be useless in any presidential power grab,
or worse would actively join sides with the oppressor.

The Roman Republic lasted about 200 years and then they got an Emperor, we
may be going down the same road.
