Due to the fact that this armed revolution would consist of a minority of Americans, they would be easily disposed of. By disposed of, I mean killed or imprisoned.
The government would then implement martial law. Police and military checkpoints would be established throughout your country. Surveillance would be magnified.
Those involved in this violent revolution would be classified as terrorists, and the majority of American citizens would be in agreement with that assessment.
Change will only come when the majority of Americans feel that it is necessary.
It will more than likely be accomplished through peaceful methods.
Your desire for bloodshed will make matters in your country worse.
Your desire for bloodshed will ensure that your country is plunged in to a state of chaos.
Your desire for bloodshed will ensure that an actual police state is instated.
Your desire for bloodshed will truly erode your freedoms and hasten the destruction of the U.S. constitution that you all hold so dear.
When the majority of American have had enough of the current political climate, you will not need violence to restore your nation to its former glory.
My desire for bloodshed? Who are you talking to? I don't see anyone here who desires bloodshed.
I was up in the Blue Ridge mountains and got charged by a 3000 lb Black Angus bull one time. I saw it coming, but that doesn't mean I wanted it to come.
Just like I see what's coming to America. Doesn't mean I WANT it to come. Big difference.
For the record, things of the precise nature being discussed here kept me from acquiring various and sundry hoofprints all about my person. At various and sundry times, and in various and sundry places.
Survival. It's not just for war anymore, but it works there too.
Out of curiosity, if my "desire for bloodshed" will bring all of your listed calamities on, what will my complacency bring on? Will we all get to sing Kumbaya around a campfire if I just ignore stuff? You better hope not, 'cause my singing voice is atrocious.
