Its funny how a person who is new to ATS, or at least has a new account, asks the question "who is spreading these ideas?"
I for one, tell everyone I know about the the news stories that I read on ATS and I can tell you that many have started listening, especially after that bailout BS. I even got a couple to sign up to ATS, we were talking about income taxes and they were talking about how they were going to spend theirs. I told them about how California was handing out I.O.U.s in stead of refunds and they didnt believe me till the MSM were forced to report it.
The people are seeing the lies everywhere. Billions of dollars to rich people and we are told it is to prevent a horrible depression and now we learn that over half of that money is missing, we arent in a depression and that we need another bailout to prevent the depression that was to destroy us if we didnt pass the first bailout.
The people are waking up, they can see all the BS around them. They see it when they look out their front doors and see the banks putting forclosed signs in their yards. They see it when they lose their jobs from a corporation that got billions in bailout money and the CEOs of that corp get raises. They see it when they can barely afford to feed themselves.
Neighbors are talking to neighbors. Ideas are spreading among friends. People are waking up.

I've saw comments such as the OP's on this site time and again where immature dreamers question, "Who, what, when do we begin a revolution?" Answer is...You (specifically) don't!
The last time young people rose up in this nation and demanded that big-Gov change was the Viet-Nam protestor era. I was there. We had no internet, no cel phones, and other hi-tech devises to promolgate our uprising. But we had heart and a burning desire to shout down the hardhats who said "America, love it or leave it." with "America, change it or screw it."
We were very close to starting a revolution in the early 70's on the back of the continuation of US involvement in Viet-Nam. That is why the war ended. Big-Gov got the message, "Hell no we won't go!" The end of the war took the air out of our sails and many of us then became the sudo-capitalist dads and moms of your parents. I am 62 now and not inclined to be a revolutionary with a bunch of dreamers.
No such passion exists today in the cyber-radicals who postulate on, "...how do we begin?" or "...who goes first?" I know there are young people who are dedicated idealists and they are the ones who have a shot at turning this assault by big-Gov around. You cyber-radicals are to be pittied. If you truely want to turn this nation around, get off your duffs, put the blog aside and get out on the streets. Take your message to the people and run the risk of going to jail as many of us did so many years ago. If that's to much to ask, my suggestion to you is, "dream on little dreamer, dream on."
