With a title like that, one thing is sure... we
are not the only ones reading this.
That being said, free speech isn't always free, and this could get a little touchy... if you know what I am eluding to. Baby steps man, baby steps...
test the water first.
I am almost positive that a great many of us believe that our government is, and has been for a while, a government by the illusion of choice.
Possibly, a great many of us on here... maybe even some of the people we associate with day-to-day are aware of the idea, but in terms of numbers...
I'm sure that we are the minority. Other than that, I wholeheartedly agree with your assumption on the illusion of choice.
we should take it upon ourselves to assemble and do whatever it takes to reclaim our government, and transform it back to what it once
was, or at least what it should be, a government by the people, for the people not a government by the rich and powerful, for the rich and powerful.
Indeed, as it is a duty to every citizen of this country should... but the times have changed since the revolutionary days. To ask the question of
"what could we do to overthrow the government" is ludicrous... it is just plain crazy man. In that blunt of terms you [or any one of us] would be
labeled as a terrorist. Who and how are just small factors in comparison.
It goes without speaking, that it should never be revised, rewritten or modified for any agenda
period. End story. Our forefathers wrote it,
and well... for the most part it has been "legem terrae" since. To make anew would be an injustice. IMHO
I hear what you are saying here, and yes alot of us are fed up... with everything... we are overindulged by it all, the whole fallacy has become a fad
of extraordinary proportions. It has gone way out of our control, and in that downward spiral we have subsequently lost control. Some sheep will
return to the barn, yes there will be strays... but the shepherd is the minority
afterall and change starts small but takes alot.
Yes, I feel we as citizens of this nation do have what it takes... would we have been here now if we didn't? Maybe we have grown complacent over the
years... yes but some of us have not grown dumb. We might be shepherds but the best thing we have, ultimately is our voice. If you do meet a sheep
somewhere in a dark alleyway (nevermind) start with the smalltalk. Open some minds in the process, you never know.
Talk of violent revolution is close to suicide, but when you talk about destruction... well you know.... you can count me out.
In closing, it's MY CO2...
[No offence to the op... just brewski discussion, oh, and I really tried to edit out those puns]
