65. My definition of rebellion is acting to stop what is wrong and goes against life and humanity.

Oftentime a 'rebellious child' is one who has been disrepected, beaten or sexually abused by the elders in their family and seeking independence from the injustice that is crushing their humanity. IOW, it has a good cause.

Likewise the American Revolution, is presumed to have been fought for a just cause and for a reason. When it was over, the country would perfect itself by fostering equality. Thus, it would have no need for armed rebellion for justice. It is not the enemy of the people, but the engine to protect the people from their enemies, predatory corporations, bigots of all sorts, ignorance and misery.

The family values crowd of the GOP hold up the family as being more important that the child who rebells from being abused. They want all the laws that protected children from sexual exploitation by family members, being kept in ignorance and in bondage to authoritarian abuse, eliminated. In such cases, rebellion would be doing God's will, resisting the tyranny of a corrupt parent.

This guy is a sick authoritarian who wants to put this oppression on those who are less able to fend for themselves, and kill them if they resist. Sounds very much like a rapist mentality or a slave owner. But then, he supports slavery, too. I hope citizens of Arkansas will shun this benighted bastard.

A form of rebellion the GOP favors is that of 'a rebel without a cause,' often self-indulgent asses unwilling to confront the consequences of their own actions, threatening harm to take advantage of others. Teabaggers meet that definition.
