Americans have fought back against corrupt government before

The Hot Spot

Editor’s note: We have posted on the McMinn County War before, but the video we posted was only an excerpt. Here is the full made-for-TV movie, as part of a Hot Spot submission to WFP:

 

The Battle of Athens (sometimes called the McMinn County War) was a rebellion led by citizens in Athens and Etowah, Tennessee, United States, against the local government in August 1946.

The citizens, including some World War II veterans, accused the local officials of political corruption and voter intimidation.

The event is sometimes cited by firearms ownership advocates as an example of the value of the Second Amendment in combating tyranny

Made for TV movie is 1 hour, 39 minutes and 32 seconds

The hard part now fighting corruption is the culture. Relativism is so dominate now. The power of government has increased way to much now.
