When would you take up arms and revolt?

NWO forum seems to be the best fit for this question.
when I look at the events of degrading liberty and the abuse of the office of the President since 9/11 I wonder how long will it be until people can no longer take it any more.
What will be your turning point where you would risk your own life in order to stop the destruction of american civil liberties?

i've been ready,i just dont have the #'s to help me out,a revolt is lo000ng overdue!


-But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.--

I admire your willingness etc but don't you think that nwo / government / whoever it is that really controls things etc won't have contingency plans ready for large scale insurrection and anything other than large scale would be pointless.

I have suggested this to numerous friends / associates here in the UK but unfortunately it is British nature just to sit in pubs / homes etc and whinge and moan but take absolutely no direct action whatsoever.

One thing I admire the French for; they will take direct action for anything!

I will be ready, willing, and able to defend America's Civil Liberties when our peaceful resources are exhausted. The Constitution didn't provide us with the means to just shoot to kill on the first signs of aggression. The people of America still have a voice. It's just that we need to get everyone of this Nation to use that voice.

As America was intended... violence is our last resort.

yes, it's a very good idea and long overdue anyway, however...the sad truth is that Americans are just too busy watching their Soapies, Porn and also getting their Daily News Ration. It's like asking a Zombie to get-up and walk, when you know they are hypnotized. They are only awake when it's time to pay their War Taxes.

And maybe soon, certain Americans (not all mind, because some are aware there is a world outside their borders and that the NWO actually stands for New WORLD Order) will realise that this isnt just a national issue for them, its an international issue to be faced by the people of this planet AS A COLLECTIVE.

Infoholic said it best. Use ALL peaceful and legal means first.

There was a time back in my survivalists days that I wanted revolution but I have become much smarter and wiser in how things really work.

Use you vote to vote for people you believe in. Talk to others about that person. Sounds simplistic and it is. That is the beauty of our system of government. You don't like a guy, vote him out.

I will take up arms and revolt the second they take up arms to prevent a revolt.

Nohohoho, taking up arms is a really stupid idea. Eventually someone will "assume leadership" of the rebellion and when that bastard gets in charge of the government (s)he will wind up even worse than the "NWO" (who the hell are they, anyways?).

Just look into the Russian Revolution...I really don't something like that to happen, so I am adamantly opposed to rebellion.

The people who hold the real power will never face a voting public, that does not change the fact that the first revolt must be a political one. The people must signal to everyone that a change has got to occur, and they do it at the poll's.

That will fail of course, because of my prior statement that the people who hold the real power will never face the voting public.

Then it becomes a matter of protests and demonstrations. The constitution gives us the right to do that and it will get the attention of those with the real power.

They'll crack heads and arrest the leaders. Then they will make a few concessions.

We will all get bigger televisions. Maybe even nicer computers and better housing, or an easy chair that vibrates.

You see, it's hard to get a man to protest in the hot sun when he can be sitting in his house watching mind numbing TV in an over sized Lay-z-boy.

When the populace rises up, they throw us a bone.

The devil you know is preferable to the one you do not. Especially if that devil is making you fat and lazy.
