Thanks to everybody for their replies!
I am getting the general feeling from my fellow ATS members, that this event has a short window of opportunity to become overblown or it will evolve into a stalemate or devolve into an impossible logistical nightmare.
I am also getting the general feeling that if things do boil over, that my fellow ATS members feel the Feds will win the battle!
Finally I am getting the general feeling from my fellow ATS members that if there is a battle and the Feds do win, that the rest of the USA will do nothing about that and the Bundy Ranch Massacre will simply pass into American History as a footnote akin to Waco and Ruby Ridge etc!
Does anybody else concur with those feelings so far?
So, no, you wouldn't necessarily find that your average person is going to be plugged in to this.
I'm going to be honest here, so please don't get offended. This is what I see around here in Illinois.
Nobody gives a damned. I ask everybody I know if they see what is happening there, nobody has heard of it. And they really don't care. Which is sad and it tells me where the the "state of revolution" is in the minds of the people.
There will be no revolution friends, not until it affects eery single person, in their house, in their yards, and on their dinner table. Hell the shrinking paychecks aren't even enough to cause a revolution, people will just go out and get second or third jobs.
Ask around if you live east of there, nobody gives a damn. Which is sad because in the long run it affects each and every one of us on a smaller scale.
America will not see a revolution any time soon. That is a fact.edit on 12-4-2014 by liejunkie01 because: (no reason given)
Maybe not imminent, but I definitely believe it is certain within the next 10 years easily. I think all that remains is the determinate factor the resides on who we see succeed Barack Obama after his second term ends in 2016. From that point on anything is possible. If it is Rand Paul (which it won't be), is the only scenario I see a Civil War II not happening in, aside from, of course, the usual 'dud' events that the past 2 decades have been rife with. (Crimea for one.)

Can you please compare the numbers of citizens and government of now compared to when the revolution happened?
This will not be the same.
Completely different times with completely different mindsets.
