An elected county judge in Lubbock, Texas, that's right this judge was actually elected by the people of Lubbock, Texas, is predicting another Civil War if President Obama is re-elected. Now you may think Im taking his comments out of context, well read for yourself:
Obama will "try to give the sovereignty of the United States away to the United Nations. What do you think the public's going to do when that happens? We are talking civil unrest, civil disobedience, possibly, possibly civil war … I'm not talking just talking riots here and there. I'm talking Lexington, Concord, take up arms, get rid of the dictator. OK, what do you think he is going to do when that happens? He is going to call in the U.N. troops, personnel carriers, tanks and whatever."
Now, maybe Judge Head failed U.S. History, because obviously Lexington and Concord were battles fought in the Revolutionary War against Great Britian and not the Civi War, or as Im sure Judge Head would refer to it, "The war of northern agression". Some people may think that Judge Head was simply going too far with political rhetoric, but evidently Judge Head's has watched Red Dawn one too many times, and he has actually started planning his city's defenses. In fact he plans on leading them:
Head vowed to personally stand "in front of their personnel carriers and say, 'You're not coming in here.' And I've asked the sheriff. I said, 'Are you going to back me on this?' And he said, 'Yeah, I'm going to back you.' Well, I don't want a bunch of rookies back there who have no training and little equipment. I want seasoned veteran people who are trained that have got equipment. And even then, you know we may have two or three hundred deputies facing maybe a thousand U.N. troops. We may have to call out the militia."
As someone who watched Red Dawn countless times as a youngster I have to advise Judge Head that his miliatry plan is somehwat flawed. Anyone that watched Red Dawn knows that you don't stand infront of personnel carriers and take on a superior force head on, even Patrick Swayze and Charlie Sheen knew that you couldn't defeat a foreign army by taking them straight on. I would adivse that Judge Head re-watch Red Dawn before he starts issuing any type of orders. Its possible that Judge Head has recently found out that they are coming out with a remake of Red Dawn and he simply got caught up in the excitement of this 80's classic. Either that or as local Lubbock attorney Rod Hobson was quoted as saying, "I'd just like to think he's off his meds".

Before you start hiding your grand-daughters in the basement in fear of UN soldiers, you may want to take a second to consider that Judge Head may not know what he is actually talking about. Also, if anyone from Lubbock is reading this blog, you may want to consider voting for a Judge that isn't actively preparing to play a leading role in Red Dawn II.
