Thinking about: Consent of the governed

Despite this opinion that is at some variance, government has always rested on the consent of the governed. The only question has been whether that consent was freely given, or whether it was forced at gunpoint.

The question then becomes whether the State has sufficient guns to force consent if freely given consent is withdrawn. It is likely that Americans will find out the answer to that question in the not too distant future.
