You Say Its Revolution, I Say It's Reform

I have wondered for many years, though how young I am, what has this world come to? What has the United States of America come to? The country I love and embrace as my own has embezzled from its people for long enough. It has left those unfortunate enough to have been born into the trap of the American ghetto for dead, never to escape the hell in which they live. In undesirable cities, towns and counties of America, it takes the police over ten minutes (and thats being conservative by about 40 minutes on a good day) to arrive at the scene of a home invasion... more than long enough to leave the invaded dead on the floor in a pool of their own blood. The oppressive laws and actions indicated by the three governing powers have become laughable. And that isn't even scratching the tip of this planetary iceberg.
And so, I have thought to myself... is the current government in power only due to the fear and laziness of the American people themselves? What has happened to the minuteman militia? How has it happened that the American government has gained so much power that the American people are afraid of the government, rather than the other way around? How is it that we have allowed political parties to form when one of the greatest warnings of our forefathers was for us to avoid them?
Mayhap, I say, I may be a young and naive soul with only enough information to harm myself and others, alas I must retort that I only wish to re-establish a proper democracy, and eliminate this facade of one. I could be wrong, but I feel that the U.S. government has become frightfully too close to a socialist-totalitarian superpower. They have restricted our weapons, and almost entirely eliminated the right to even have a firearm in California a while back. And I only know a little of the laws on possession of body armour, but it seems to have been made too difficult to obtain for the law abiding citizen even.
I say it is time to repair this damaged, festering nation.
You say its a revolution, I say its a reform.

Quite honestly, I just think that the People are afraid of what they don't understand. If they could become a bit more enlightened about what it was that our government was REALLY doing, then I think that there would be action within the week.

I don't advocate armed revolution, unless all other methods have been tried and exhausted. Our founders gave us that obligation to tend to as we deemed it necessary. In this case, just learning about what's happened is a start in the right direction. This will beget action in the way of legislation that will bring about the changes that WE The People want and demand.

The People need to wake up to what's going on, and make their voices heard. If we don't, then we're doomed to suffer the same fate as those before us, total collapse.

It's time to wake up People!!!
