12. The two time Medal Of Honor winner
Marine Major General Smedley Butler was once approached by businessmen to lead a merc army to overthrow FDR, he refused. I say that if the militias of the 1990's were considered threats, what about these Wall Street funded private armies, just take a look at Colombia and see what kind of terror these groups can do.
