There are so many steps we can take, already built in to the constitution, long before we have to start a revolution.
I was once of that mindset. But after studying the history of revolutionary wars in the last 5 centuries the fact that so many ended in dictatorship,
or worse, is extremely worrisome.
There is no guarantee any form of seizing control wouldn't become violent. There is no reason to believe that any revolution could take place in the
US without someone shooting at someone else.
History has proven that nearly all revolutions lead to far worse consequences. All things considered, I think the US did alright. But we are an
exception, not the rule. There is no guarantee we'd have the same outcome as the founders. Many would like that to be true, but the reality is that
society is filled to the brim with little Hitlers waiting to happen.
Some of those little Hitlers are smart enough and violent enough to seize power in a power vacuum situation. The US remaining a constitutional
republic is an existential issue, not just for the people, but for the whole world who relies on the fact that the US is largely a stable nation.
There are a lot of issues that can be advocated for at the policy level now that do not require any sort of revolutionary acts. I understand the
anger, but it is not the time to call for desperate measures, right now is the time to educate and keep a watchful eye.
