I've done a lot of research on various conspiracy theories, as well as examining current political and security situations, and the gist I get is that the world is literally owned by those with the money, and that the US is the center of it, between our banking and government set-up. At this point I'm pretty disgusted by how every aspect of our lives is carefully controlled. We're told what's good to eat, what medicines are best, what we should use to trade for necessities, how we should go about getting those necessities. I've seen corruption not only on a federal and global scale, but a local scale as well, after seeing the politics of my area, I know how the county board is capable of making whatever decisions it wants, and almost all the decisions are based on money. For the average joe, there is no freedom anymore, at least not here in America, and I haven't seen much of it anywhere else. So I ask, how many of you here in America would be willing, no matter the cost, to march on DC within the week, and not just ask for "unedited moon pictures" or "the truth behind 9/11," but to demand revolution and reform of our government. This means full disclosure, all classified documents released. This means reform of our currency and banking systems, the dismantlement and reformation of our government to suit this new technological world. I'm not talking a small walk on DC to ask for reform, I'm asking for a mass gathering to DEMAND reform.

What scares me, is I think that very few people would, but I tell you, I'm ready to go, I would walk there if I thought the people would come.

So here are the questions I'd like to have answered or discussed:
Would you pick up everything, stop going to work and sit in DC in protest... this week?
If a single person stood in DC and demanded these things, would you join that person?

It takes a snowball effect to get this rolling, and I really believe this could happen, and be done peacefully, but I fear that unless we bottom out soon, we don't have much time to resolve our current depression without violence.

Remember, revolution is the responsibility of the people, we cannot blame a government which has gone unchecked for inevitable corruption. Wake up and demand your rights back!

That statement was nothing short of insulting, socialism is what we'll get if we don't have a revolution.

I hate to say it, but I don't even thing the thousands upon thousands that have lost their jobs would join you.. even if you pay for their bus fair.

I'm sorry, but I have given up on the American public doing anything about out of control Government.

I'm not asking about everyone else, I'm asking you. If you heard on the news tomorrow that I was standing in DC demanding these things, would YOU join me?

ok, in that case.. (sorry I read too much into it) I would. I would leave my job and sit in DC with you as long as it took.

Well then there's two people who would sit in DC and make these demands, we've already doubled, any other takers?

Be honest too guys, don't say it to be righteous, if enough people say Yes, I'm entirely willing to be that one guy to start.

in all reality, I have a few people in the DC area that would be more than willing to join in and even put people up for the time that they were there.

That would be generous of them, but don't get too far ahead. I'll be that one guy, but not unless I think people will come. If I'm going to do this, I'm going to do it right, and I won't leave until I'm dead or we're given results. Obviously that's a lot to put at stake hmm?

In all reality, it may not be time for a revolution yet, but I think it's time to challenge the patriotism of Americans, it's time to awaken them to their complacency. If your an American, and you can't say Yes to at least one of my questions, you should be ashamed to call yourself American, as that is the opposite of what our founding fathers intended for our country. They foresaw this happening, and they made sure we could revolt, if we don't, we deserve what we get.

im down.

At the risk of upsetting a lot of people I'd like to pose one question.

Why are Americans so terrified of Socialism?

I don't mean Communism in the Soviet style, but a more benign Socialism like we've had in various European countries over the years.

Is it because it denies the America spirit? The frontier spirit, the one man against the world view, is Socialism the opposite of the American Dream?

I wonder because I suspect with the abuse of power by TPTB the American Dream seems to have been replaced by American Idol.

The essential problem with socialism is that it makes the people dependent on their government in one or more aspects. Let me make a comparison for you. Our government is supposed to have little control of industry and business, but it has total control of our money. It's printed by them, it's distributed by them, and it's valued by them. Money also happens to be the core of our government's corruption. This is not by coincidence.

Want another analogy? Our government has complete control of the military, they are capable of drafting citizens into service, and once you're in service, you belong to them. They can go to war with anyone they want, and the people have no say.

I challenge you to bring me something that a government has complete control of and does not abuse. It's human nature.

Give a government control of something, and it will be exploited. This is why we cannot entrust health care to the government, or take on a socialist government. The next step in government evolution, in my opinion, is a country run by the people, but under checks and balances by an elected government.

Could I ask what drove you to the conclusion that it was in fact time for a revolution? Was it just a gut-feeling, have you heard others speak of revolution, or has the 'revolutionary theme' creeping forth in the global news planted a seed in your psyche?

I agree with you, there is no better time for revolution than this week - in fact it's necessary according a program I use that maps time (sounds weird I know). We're now heading towards a repeat of the time cycle that gave rise to the French Revolution of 1789. The next 7 days are a kind of repeat of the last half of 1788 and the beginning of 1789.

The intro to my thread Air France Flight 447 - Timewave Zero Correlation explains where I'm coming from if this makes no sense.

Compare these images:

The late 1700's


So indeed these are revolutionary times, and there's no better time than now to act if we're to actually achieve something from it.

For most people, they don't really care what happens so long as they have a little box they go home to at the end of the day and watch the idiot box and go to bed. Lather, rinse, and repeat until retirement.

Other people will get mad but nobody seems to have the time to do anything. Just like everyone else, they still have a job to slave away at so they can support their family and pay bills. These people may be angry but at the end of the work day they are often too tired and they also recuperate at home.

It's just my opinion but I think the government really manipulated us into a society that makes us really easy to control by making us slaves to our possessions and thus our jobs as well. Meaning even if people were to get really angry little trouble would still come of it because we are too preoccupied.

I hope this makes sense, it's like 4 AM here.

I am not convinced this IS the time for revolution. I am only human, I can only speculate on the observations I make through my life. What makes me believe the time is nearing is the situation of the world. I can't think of a time in which so many disastrous events have taken place and there wasn't a world changing revolution.

Swine Flu
North Korea
Global Warming

Just a short list of disastrous events in the past decade which I was able to conjure within seconds.

The USA is in times of serious depression, some say it is in fact worse times than the Great Depression. We need something, and our government appears to be milking everything it can out of what time it has. My gut-feeling tells me that if we don't do something, the rest of us are going to be left behind.

If you want me to be perfectly honest, I've been meditating on making this post for several weeks, and it still scares me, because I'm essentially volunteering to be a target. That's why I urge again, respond with Yes's if you are willing to join me, or this will be just another thread lost on the ATS forums.

I don't live close to DC by any means, it would in fact, at this point in my life, be a very bad decision to take such a long leave. I am still willing to go through with it, I figure if I'm willing to die for this cause, I should be willing to change my life as well. The truly sad thing is that as far as I know, I'm the only person willing to get this started? So many people aware of how we are being manipulated and lied to, and I'm the only person willing to be the first to take a stand? If you live in DC, you should be the person willing to start this, not me.

Yeah, let's go socicalism, like what the killer at the Halocuast Museum thought we should all be. Damn those right winger nut cases. Heh.crap. Yeah, let me suck up more of this crap from the MSM or was that MSN and Fox.

Maybe you should ask this question on the thread named "proud to be American--you should be ashamed".

You might get some response worth considering.

Good Luck if you do this...I am in UK and it wont be too long here either.

BTW I am intigued with the post by Evasius...will certainly be looking mor into that..thanks.

I really don't think you are the only one that is seriously considering making some kind of move- not even the only person on ATS..

Most of "us".. the ones I can speak for are not waiting for a better time to make our stand, just the best form and to what degree.

The US is ripe for change, and not the type offered by politicians, but until something sets it off, actions have to be made with caution..

You obviously have no idea what Socialism is. We'll reach Fascism quicker than Socialism.

Socialism has failed in every way to produce the result that it was intended to bring.

I don't need the government making my economic decisions for me.

Also, you would have to completely wipe our Constitution away in order to produce a socialistic Economy- as well as our Bill of Rights- I am not very fond of doing either.

I do agree- it's Fascism, not socialism that our Government is seeking though.
