Okay, for sake of argument let's say there is an absolute rebellion of say 33 million Americans (10% of the population) taking up arms to overthrow the current government and reestablish the true Constitutional Republic that we should have. And let's say 100% of our military and police refuse to fight against the people. I know, fantastic odds but stay with me for the big question.
Would there be a super realistic video game quickly released called Drone Strike for the kids to play? I am going to say, you betcha.

Americans are too lethargic to care enough to form a rebellion.
That being said, income equaility was NEVER this bad at any time in history without class warfare of some kind.
France 1789, Russia 1917, and many other cases of revolution were driven by income inequality that was nowhere near as bad as USA 2015.
Unfortunately, the average American has absolutely no idea as to what Income Inequality is.
Americans are kept in a constant state of fear by media outlets such as FOX NEWS. They just released a study that more than 60% of Americans think (a) there's a terrorist living in their hometown (b) the White House is incompetent and (c) the country is still in recession.
Keeping the country divided and terrified of having a conversation is the elite's way of ensuring that no one gets together and actually has a decent discussion and figures out what's going on.
The elites, along with the NRA, have convinced everyone to go out and buy massive amounts of guns and ammunition, to make people think if they have a disagreement with their neighbor they'll be shot. And would probably be right.

AND then some asshat shows up TO ABUSE it,as has happended in socialist countries the world over.
ANY system that reduces it's population to the lowest denominator won't work in a freethinking society.
WE have PROGRAMS and parts of our culture,we just need the laws WE ALREADY have enforced.

It does appear that the 'writing is on the wall',especially when the media is fanning all sides of the fire. It's not a matter of 'if', but 'when'.
Either way, I want no part of it. Revolutions are just a tactic for recruiting useful idiots.
With the embers of racism for the most part all but extinguished in America
