HBO host Bill Maher had MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell as one of his guests on "Real Time" Friday night, and the two were adamant that the Second Amendment cannot protect against tyranny (and that such a conversation shouldn't even really be happening in this age).After pointing out the poll where 44% of Republicans said an armed revolution might be necessary in order to protect liberties in the next few years, compared to 18% of Democrats, Maher said:

Bearing arms and putting down tyranny.   Everything, basically.

Bavarian's point is, these two men are talking inside of their own bubble, their own ignorant if-shared world view, delusional of real world events going on around them.

Who is going to provide the air support to this Libya-esque revolution?

Yes, Bill Maher is an idiot.
Along with Colbert and John Stewart. They all spread their little "liberal" ideas about how we should all just bend over and take it from the Federal Government...

I used to like Maher, and still do agree with his take on religion, at least for the most part, but on other issues, especially 2nd amendment and the war on terror, he is a complete idiot.

Jon Stewart is funny, but a coward in the end.  Colbert is different.  Both are controlled by Viacom and Sumner Redstone.

I just don't care for them much myself.

The rebels would have won without the air support - but the war would have been much longer and thousands (or more) would have died. Air support is a wonderful thing, but if enough of the will of the people has turned against you - you will eventually loose.

Quite right.
Look at the French Revolution and the Russian Revolution. Also, the English Civil War, is another good example. Ordinary people, without much weapons or firepower, rose up against their governments. And suceeded.

I don't understand why some people believe that history ended after the cold war.

Well no matter how well armed you are, the Tyrannical Government ™ will be better armed. You've got thousands of rounds of ammunition and enough guns to outfit your entire town? They've got tanks. You've got a bunker? They've got drones with bunker busting bombs.
You can fit tyranny with guns, but more times then not you'll lose because tyranny is better armed and equipped. Not saying don't fight, I'm saying "if you have to fight, you've lost a lot of easier to win battles already".
