The only reason why people continue to do so though is a) they, like yourself, are too stupid or willfully ignorant to know otherwise, or b)they have been bullied or threatened to do so, or pay with harsh consequences.

Perhaps you do not understand what this new American has done with this thread? He has laid the moral groundwork for an armed response to any further violation of our Constitutional rights. Deemed necessary by our founding fathers as a precursor to armed insurrection against tyranny; a necessity forgotten by the rest of the patriot community (This is a red face admission that this new American has a better grasp of procedures in demand of a redress of grievances then I… Ouch) in our attempts to get our elected officials to HEAR us.

I disagree with your second to the last point. We should be doing both. Trying to change things peacefully, but getting ready for when it goes down.
Hope for the best, prepare for the worst.

Across the country growing numbers of tax payers are stating that they will not pay anymore taxes. Promising to not file and just to refuse to pay, growing numbers of US tax payers have said enough is enough;
Sounds like right-wing (un)Americans, who in a time of crisis, are unwilling to do their share in order to save their beloved capitalism.
The Tea Party movement continues to grow, as the anger of the American people over government waste
I thought after their first failed attempt they had completely given up. At least mainstream media is doing their part in ignoring these people.
That, I'm afraid, is the state of the majority of Americans. At least the Americans that I've had the displeasure to be acquainted with.
So you're saying instead of preoccupying our time worrying about these perceived threats, and concentrating on what would be best for "me," we should focus instead on the nation, pay our taxes, and do our part as Americans by standing behind our government or, at the very least, hope for its success in saving the economy and providing universal healthcare? I agree wholeheartedly.

I would advise we all are careful not to confuse disagreements in severity with 'denial'.
Any view of a coming 'economic collapse' or general breakdown in capitalism is pretty much rendered silly upon ones next visit to the check out line at wal-mart or next battle with rush-hour traffic.
Until these internet/MSM driven fear-mongering scenarios have been translated to the everyman---and make no mistake,they absolutely have NOT been----then this entire matter is being overstated and exaggerated.
