In any successful revolution in recent years the people take to the streets in such numbers that the military/security forces follow,you wont successfully overthrow any US goverment without one or more branches of the military being on side.

This might not be the popular opinion, but that's all it is, is my opinion. I believe that what would be the straw that breaks the camels back for a majority would be the complete and total collapse of government assistance. If, suddenly, America woke up to a country without food stamps, Medicaid, housing assistance and welfare, there would panic on the streets.
I can't speak for what would be the straw for me, because I think it will be a culmination of things. I can say that I don't like the way the country is going, a fear for the future.
