I doubt our past leaders would have been so foolish as to instigate an armed rebellion when it so obviously doesn't have popular support and a chance of winning.

As bad as things seem, they really haven't been much better in America; I see the real (usually unintentional) evil as the super-federalists who bloat the federal government which is now inherently ignorant of rights. They're trying to do the right thing, I believe, but by creating more and more central programs and federal powers responsible for the entire nation.

would like to ask everyone what they think our founding fathers would do in our dilemma of today’s government rule.

If the majority of US citizens feel that those who run the government are tyrants and enemies of the constitution, are we not obligated to do something?
