I starred your comment because I agree with it 100%. The question I have is, how do we make it happen? I know of only one way, and that's complete
There are different forms of Revolution. I don't advocate violence, because that only destroys what we are trying to save, namely our country and our
way of life.
I would say that the first step should be to educate those around you to what is happening. Most people get their news and world-views from the MSM,
which for the most part, is part of the problem. Rick Santelli is an exception. One thing we should all do is email CNBC and let them know we fully
support Rick Santelli and his honesty. I'm sure that there are executives somewhere that are right now plotting to try to get rid of him.
Let your friends, neighbors, relatives know what is really going on.
The next step is to get your circle of people start writing and calling their representatives, and let them know how fed up we are with their
bailouts. If 60% of the voters did this, I guarantee that the rep would not vote for another bailout. I vote with my pocketbook. I told my congressman
that my wife and I would spend no money on anything but essential food items, until they stop bailing out the crooks and deadbeats. I know in the
short run, it makes the recession/depression worse, but one thing corporations don't like is having their sales go down drastically. We use our car
twice a week, once to go to church, and the other to get a few dollars worth of essential groceries, most of which we get at a local grocery farmers
market. Learn to live with less, visit the Survivalist threads on ATS to get some great ideas. Avoid the movies completely, as that just supports
Hollywood and the rich anyway. Spend the time with your family, talk with them, play games, discuss issues, get to know your family again, if you've
spent too little time in the past doing that. Have rotating pot luck dinners with neighbors and friends. If you belong to a church, help support
kitchens for those who truly need help. There are plenty of poor through no fault of their own. Share what you have with them.
The PTB can't continue to run and ruin the world, if we don't support them.
Look at the Amish. If you ever went past their farms in the daytime, you'll see entire families helping with the farming, the wash, etc. The children
seem so happy, just kicking an old ball around with each other. No high tech, no TV's, just each other.
If nothing else, by doing as much of the above as you can, you lower your dependence upon the PTB, and that IS a revolution in itself.
