Just hypothetical questions. I am just curious and have no plans to overthrow the gov.

Let's say that a countries government has gone to far and the only way of saving it was through revolution.

If you were going to plan a revolution:

What would be your ultimate goal? Return to the constitution and original bill or rights?

How would you organize and plan it? The government has infiltrated every aspect of our lives and we are being watched. There is no privacy.

How would you go about executing your plan? Take over each state capitol?

Your thoughts please.

Start working to get people like Ron Paul elected.

They don't rig elections here in the United States. We are just too damn lazy to go out and vote....that being said...a revolution would take far far far more dedication than stopping into a voting booth!

I honestly think that we are past the point of being able to elect an honest politician. Our government has been undermined by faceless corporate entities who care not what the common citizen thinks. The only reason most people don't understand this is because these bozos have a HECK of a marketing department....they really know how to sell a war among other things.
Now getting back to the original point, I think that one of the first and best things that we could do is to stop paying our taxes. These people just don't care, but when you eff with their flow of revenue they might wake up a little bit. Also, if we were able to convince multiple states to secede that would be a major wake up call as well. Other than those two points, I can't really come up with a full-blown strategy if the unfortunate prospect of violence were to be at hand...too much would depend on the circumstances I would think. Just imagine the kind of guerilla warfare we the people would be able to wage though! Off topic, but I think that this aspect is part of the reason that no country will likely ever invade us.

The paradigm is broken.

Political relevance is media-driven.

Political membership is financially driven.

The servants no longer serve - they demand to be served instead.

The parties must be abolished and new parties forged.

I like mind exercises...

I think it can be pulled off with 10,000 people. 2400 would break into groups of 200 and go to 12 key cities with the objective capturing a particular building and hold it in a defensive position as long as possible to serve as a distraction.

Meanwhile 500 would storm the capitol building with 3000 in reserve posing as media and on lookers to catch any organized recapture attempt in a classic pincher.

The remaining 4100 can serve as a standing army after capturing various resources in order to hold the capitol or to be the proverbial other shoe to drop.

These 10,000 are only the catalyst to recruit and inspire as it is my summation that there upwards of one million are ready to engage in open conflict, they are just waiting for a sign.

wow that is quite detailed, impressive!!! i have to say though, i think we would certainly have some serious trouble what with the crowd control devices that have come out in recent years...however, not a bad plan! if things got to the point of violence i bet you could up your original number of 10k at least 4 fold.

They don't rig elections here in the United States? Ohio was hijacked, and the guy that was supposed to testify in congress/court was killed in a plane crash within days of having to testify.

Oh, the Florida election in 2000 was also hijacked. Your/my vote did not count in 2000. Bush was elected by the Supreme Court.

Edit: On topic, keep doing the same things we are doing and we'll find out.

I can't take full credit and I did leave out quite a few details on purpose. But for the core, it is just pretty much a modification of John Brown's plan from the 1850's.

Fighting and revolution is what the PTB want. Besides, when something revolves it tends to repeat itself down the line. No one wants that. The only way to overcome this stuff is through an EVOLUTION in strategy. You have to understand, if there is actual bloodshed and revolt, the PTB will use these events as reasons to increase their stranglehold even further.

Possible solutions? Massive non-compliance (ie taxes, traffic fines, etc.). Massive non-violent protests. Focusing on supporting your local community. The only advantage the people have is in our numbers.

The problems? How do you recruit enough people to actually be successful. And, even if you are successful, the PTB don't seem to play by the same rules as everyone else.

In summary, violence won't solve anything, only escalate, perpetuate, and accelerate what is already in the works.

Florida wasn't hijacked. The votes were far too close to call and it developed into a classic stalemate. The next step, clearly outlined in the constitution, was to have the court system decide, ending of course at the Supreme Court.

The government is not this huge benevolent entity that protects or doles out resources. I could tell you what it really is but people are slowing waking up to that on their own and it seems so much more real when they find out for themselves.

What does the government do for you that you can not do for yourself?

If you woke up tomorrow and all the electricity was out. No TV. No telephones. No running water. No public transportation. What would you do?

Would you sit around and wait for the government to send someone to rescue you?

We don’t need the kind of government that we have now so it “should” be abolished. You can’t fight a non-entity and the people that are doing the bidding of TPTB are our country men that are just trying to put food on the table and are lost in the lies.

We need to start by recognizing that life as we know is over. We are going to have to make changes. We are going to have to make choices and we are going to have to make sacrifices. M. Night was not to far off with his movie “The Village”. We may have to go back farther than that but at least we will be free in spirit, mind and soul.

Render unto Caesar what is Caesar’s and let them choke on it. We need to move on to a new dawn, a new day, and a new age.
