They are the same few people (I smell conspiracy). Are the self proclaimed leaders of this movement willing to be killed or better yet kill American's?

I love how some of you make a mockery for what us "Revolutionaries" stand for. You sit in your little homes watching your soaps and reality television, and you believe every word that comes out of the fat lips of the upper enchelon about how "things are getting better" and we are "the greatest country in the world."
While we are out trying to make a difference, think about what you are doing for a moment. You are sitting here, complaining about people who are TRYING to make your life better. You would probably complain if I gave you 1000 bucks because it was "too green".
The fact of the matter is this. I would gladly die for my beliefs. A strong portion of my beliefs rests within the Constitution of the United States of America, not because they are privileges given to us, but because they are our God given rights solidified in time on a document that gives meaning and hope to a life worth living. So yes, I would die for this "revolution" you speak of.
The ones we would be fighting may have been fellow Americans, but we are not fighting without cause. We are not barbarians who would kill without reason. Each and every person who stands in the way of the Constitution commits treason, an act which when punished by our almighty overseers in government is cheered and applauded. However, when such accounts are brought towards those people felt to be our leaders, the "books" are quietly pushed to the side and we are left fighting "our own countrymen".
We are willing to die, and I am sure I speak for most. The sad part is that it will take the lives of many who are not willing before people like those in this topic finally open their eyes and see the real reason in which we are fighting for.

The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government - lest it come to dominate our lives and interests.
The liberties of a people never were, nor ever will be, secure, when the transactions of their rulers may be concealed from them.
Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains or slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take but as for me; give me liberty or give me death!
Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are inevitably ruined.
If a nation values anything more than freedom, it will Lose its freedom: and the irony of it is that if it is comfort or money that it values more, it will lose that, too.
It is the duty of the patriot to protect his country from his government.
