I read the article linked at WRSA and thought it contained a lot of truth. Of course the bench shooter blowhards who comment there were offended by it, because it calls them out. I loved the quote about owning rifles but not being trained!
And the ego driven non-team individualistic bickering continues on WRSA, as per all conservative ‘Liberty’ sites. And the left organizes and carries on.
Went to a talk on railroads in the South during the Civil War. Made me think of this very topic. The South had over 100 companies and used 3 different gauges (plus, they really couldn’t make sufficient rolling stock or engines domestically). States’ Rights mixed with this and no one wanting to really give control over their rail roads (many of them were state owned, at least in part, it seems) to either Davis or the Army until the war was lost. Lincoln didn’t have any problem with taking over assets that he and his army needed, especially once they were in the South, so that problem sorted itself out quickly for them.
Got to learn from history. It’s not just demons who can’t stand with a divided house, you know. The Left knows this quite well.
