Sure most of the people on ATS know about the NWO, but how many people in the world do you think know about it?
If it was not for ATS I wouldn't have a clue what NWO means.
Agree 100% News isn't news anymore, it's ridiculous.
I was watching "A current affair" the other night, a show about.. guess what.. CURRENT AFFAIRS.
Anyway, they had a interview with 2 supermodels?
How the hell is this a current affair?

Ask the militia leaders.
If I remember my history correctly, when we were fighting the war of independence against the british, not every single american colonist was fighting and in fact, the british did turn some of our own people against us. They were called the green coats and the loyalists. It's not needed that EVERY single american stand up and fight and to think this will be possible is preposterous since there will always be those too apathetic to care. If I remember correctly, somebody in here posted that if at least 10% of the U.S. population would wake up and were ready to fight, that would be enough to get things rolling (whether that's true or not, I'm not sure)

Get rid of the head, and the rest of the body will fall. Now the thing is, there are hardly any pictures of these people responsible for someone to go after.
If 5% actively strive for change then miracles can be accomplished. During your Revolution, MOST of the population actively opposed the revolutionaries and collaborated with the British, including the Loyalists you mentioned above. They maintained the status quo because it was easier. They could not see that change was possible or even preferable to British rule with all its inequities.

Or, even more fun, force them to eat the GMO food they stuff down our gullets, every deadly medicine they unleashed on the sick and weary, send their children to war on a distant rock, and let them all get analy reamed by the aliens they think theyre friends with. I wonder how they would fare if they had to live from paycheck to paycheck.
Also, the first shot will undoubtedly be fired by THEM. Followed by millions more, and missles and projectiles from space and heat seeking exploding gophers. There isn't much a man with a gun can do when he has a squadron of attack helicopters bearing down on him.

GOP Senator Warns of 'Riots' if Automakers Are Bailed Out
Sen. Jim DeMint says unfair union influence and the bailout culture will anger many Americans.

Time and again we’ve heard about the lost jobs and economic impact of failing to bail out the beleaguered American auto manufacturers. But little mention has been made of the consequences of going through with the bailout, and how such an action would be viewed by other Americans.
In an interview following a Dec. 10 press conference where he and four other senators aired their opposition to the proposed bailout deal struck by congressional leaders and the White House (and approved by the U.S. House of Representatives 237-170 that evening), Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C., warned that the perception that some industries are being bailed out and some aren’t could lead to violence.
“We’re going to have riots. There are already people rioting because they’re losing their jobs when everybody else is being bailed out. The fairness of it becomes more and more evident as we go along. The auto companies may be hurting,” he said, but “there are very few companies that aren’t hurting and they’re going to hurt. We don’t have enough money to bail everyone out.”
DeMint blamed the unions for pushing this issue as far as it has gotten. The senator said the notion that reorganization under bankruptcy would not work was generated by the unions for fear of losing their power.
“The primary driver behind this is the unions, because bankruptcy allows the auto companies to basically restructure all their contracts in a way that a bankruptcy judge says will make them sustainable,” DeMint said. “And if they do that, then essentially the unions lose all their leverage. It’s the unions that have brought them to the brink. So definitely, I think the reason they want a political solution and a car czar is because a car czar can protect the unions through this whole process at the expense of the taxpayer.”
The result of the bailout culture that now exists on Capitol Hill will be incredibly high rates of inflation down the road as the economy picks back up and prices reflect the amount of new money circulating through the economy.
“There is no question this will result in inflation,” DeMint said. “The amount of money we’ve borrowed, the amount of money we’ve printed has put us in a more dangerous situation than we’ve ever been in as a country. We may not see the inflation as long as the economy is slow. But, I’ve talked to some economic experts and once the economy starts picking up with so much money in the money supply and so much debt, we’re likely to see very high interest rates and very high inflation rates.”
DeMint went as far as to say that General Motors (NYSE:GM), one of the big three auto manufacturers lobbying for bailout money, was better off than the nation that’s debating whether to rescue it..
“If you look at where we’re going, we’re not on a sustainable course as a country,” DeMint said. “Frankly, GM is in a better financial situation than we are as a country. The only difference is we can print money. But as other countries around the world lose confidence in the value of a dollar – that’s going to come home very shortly.”
