Doe 21% of the population crying out for "revolution" necessarily reflect the consensus of the american people?
Tell me howmany liberals or moderates out there agree with this self styled trigger happy "revolution"? Get back to me will ya.
UNITED STATES of America - It can now be reported that the recent resignation of former New York Federal Reserve Bank of New York Chairman, Stephen Frieidman, signals an expanding investigation of New York Attorny General Andrew Cuomo, who is not only focused on the massive New York state financial derivative Ponzi Scheme, but is now centered on money laundry, and possible funding of alleged terrorists in Pakistan.
Rep. Alan Grayson asks the Federal Reserve Inspector General about the trillions of dollars lent or spent by the Federal Reserve and where it went, and the trillions of off balance sheet obligations. Inspector General Elizabeth Coleman responds that the IG does not know and is not tracking where this money is.

whaaa, you are exactly right. The cities will be on fire. Just consider Liberty City, LA, New Orleans, and New York.
It goes sideways, and it's going to be absolute chaos and anarchy in the cities. I've said this before, but you may have missed it - our cities are the hubs of our commerce, banking, and transportation, as well as containing the warehouses that supply the country.
It will all stop. No supplies, no food, no fuel, no banking, no money, and no one gets anymore than what they already have, or in some instances, what they can loot.
The Powers That Be? There will be no PTB.
That's why this is going to come to a grinding halt.
I would guess that it will be complete misery and chaos for around 90 days. If you don't have enough to sustain yourself for a minimum of 90 days, then you may want to rethink your stash.

In all seriousness, I doubt that the entire story is true. There are enough things in it that COULD be true, and probably are, but there are several indications that at least parts of it were made up out of whole cloth from and old script.
Ahhhh... but if the portion that COULD be true proves to be so, there are gonna be some (more) ticked-off folks around
How many of the rightwing fringe can account for being at those anti-war protests seagull? Tell me what exactly constitutes an all out revolution? One that represents all of america? Or one that represents a fraction?
What is this about? The stimulus? the wars? or just paying taxes in general? I can tell ya the latter two have been around since anyone here could remember. The stimulus, that's debatable, there are those of us that agree with it. There is actually a wider consensus in agreement among economists. It is reality that it will take at least two years to see the effect there of.
Your free to voice out what you like, thats your god given freedom. Although a revolution on behalf of "America" carried out by a fraction of that population against the rest, doesnt represent a revolution for America as a whole.
After the disasterous policies of the last administration its going to take years to recover back to smaller government. Aint going to happen over night.
And yet the vast majority of your fellow "patriots" here dont want to pay any taxes for it. You know the stimulus is targeted just towards your concerns provided above. As for the closed borders thats an issue you go to polls for, not necessarily incite all out anarchy on the nation.
And yet your accepting of it, claiming it for the nation as a whole, when its only the consensus of a fraction. What is democracy to you? When do you feel you represent a nation? When a bunch of self proclaimed "patriots" call the shots?

I grew up in the blue ridges, and have recently returned home. I agree with you, the attitude has changed. Those who pay attention to what is going on in the world today know nothing good will happen out of this power grab. I do not think anything will be happening anytime soon though, we are still too fat and too happy. Give it some time, and keep ready.

Leaders will fall into place,when men put everything they have lived for be on the line,you be surprised how even the most immature man can act..
things will fall into place..This isnt a recruitment site or organizing thread..
So the Revolution will be organized and recruited on www.? That's the silliest thing I've ever heard.
When they declare martial law soon and attempt to disarm the American people, and the first shots have been fired at Americans who refuse to surrender their arms, shedding innocent blood; they will have their revolution. Guerilla action will commence with targets of opportunity picked for their disruptive value to the struggle. Prisoners will be asked for their parole and those who give it will be marked; those captured again in combat after having given their parole will be shot under the Geneva Convention. Those who refuse to give their parole will be kneecapped.
All law breakers, muggers and thugs will be tried and hung, or shot on the spot as caught; this to include looters.
Civilian Detention Centers will be main targets once the initial situation stabilizes. Political prisoners will be marked for rescue as soon as their holding areas are identified. This will be accomplished with direction from National Guard and Army Reserve militia command coordinators.
All centralized command structures will shift to State National Guard Commanders in the free states, as soon as possible once militia leaders receive state guard commissions. Then full scale combat missions will commence; the groundwork for this having been laid since the late 90’s.
An all out revolution need not shed blood save in the most metaphorical of ways. Bloodshed is the very last of resorts, haven't I made that sufficiently clear? Those tax/spending protests last month certainly represented all of America, again, just like the antiwar demonstrations of a few years back. What's a fraction? 1/3? 1/2? 5/6? Got some news for you, more people are getting angry than politicos and their cheering sections want to admit. Were I them, I'd be more than a little bit worried.
No one wants a revolution. But more and more people are seeing that it may become necessary. This isn't an issue of left or right being upset about losing an election, though there is indeed a small element of truth to that, however the discontent crosses political boundaries, only the blind can't see that, or people too caught up in the left/right thing.
Revolution. Not something that I, personally, want to see. But I don't blind myself to the very real possibility that it may indeed become a reality. But yes, I'm reluctantly OK with the possibility that it may become necessary. Reluctantly, because my country, the country my father bled for in three wars, that his brothers served, that my sibs served, and my mothers brothers all served...will never be quite the same again. For the better? For the worse? We don't know, and that's scary. But the direction we're headed is even scarier.
Secondly, we should indeed trust the old and the wise. They have seen a lot in their years that we can't even imagine. War is sanitized now to the point where people don't really understand the horror of it. I dare say even a lot of those serving don't really understand that when they push a button, people die.
