I am anti-government, but violent revolution doesn't work, never has, look at history.

I'm sure your statement was conceived of from a common individuals point of view, but then that's not who starts revolutions. From the point of view of the power mad, mammon obsessed tyrants who are responsible for all war, it is in fact quite effective.
You talk about your revolution, well, that's fine
But what are you going to be doing come the time?
Are you going to be the big man with the tommy-gun?
Will you talk of freedom when the blood begins to run?
Well, freedom has no value if violence is the price
Don't want your revolution, I want anarchy and peace.
You talk of overthrowing power with violence as your tool
You speak of liberation and when the people rule
Well ain't it people rule right now, what difference would there be?
Just another set of bigots with their rifle-sights on me. Crass

First of all, I haven't seen any of my rights taken away by the current administration and second, staging a Columbine-type assault to stir the publics support of banning private ownership of firearms is only a dream in a demented mind.
It's like a bumper sticker I seen in South Carolina several years ago. It went like this: "In most states, the Constitution protects the rights of those who wish to bear arms. In South Carolina, those who bear arms protect the Constitution."
I. for one, really like the message on this persons bumper sticker. The same feeling should be universal.
Governor Bush's complacency with the high number of executions in Texas, his refusal to acknowledge the extensively documented lack of adequate legal representation for capital defendants in Texas, and his refusal to oppose the execution of even mentally handicapped defendants or youthful offenders generated widespread media attention and criticism.
