The Gun Empire is not a defender of basic American values. Its mantra is that if the government does not agree with its understanding of freedom, then it will have no other recourse than to take down the government with stockpiled guns. Should this sound alarmist, remember that I am quoting from the speeches of leaders in the Gun Empire.

To increase their influence in America, the idols of power and deadly force are reaching out to their most ardent right-wing zealots and promoting suspicion and hostility, not only to the Obama administration, but also to America’s long-established democratic principles and social institutions. When the Gun Empire cries “freedom,” it has in mind preparing for insurrection.—America and Its Guns: A Theological Expose, page 141

Question: Why is it that generally the more conservative voter wants a strong military, a weak central government, and the freedom to carry automatic/semiautomatic weapons to defend agains the very military they want to have?

I don't understand it. Please explain it to me, if you can.
