"We may have to shed blood every couple hundred years to preserve our freedoms," he said, paraphrasing Jefferson after arguing the GOP was losing the "war" for voters.

    Oh I can think of a few other things in addition to gun control and Obamacare to be civily, or uncivily disobedient about. Patriot Act, NDAA, eminent domain abuse, rogue law enforcement, the army and CIA running amok in our country.
