You mention 'In our ranks' - in the ranks of your Revolutionary Army? Is this more fantasy?
Respectfully, I agree with everything that's been posted here in this thread. I am just offering the simply question that no one has answered and
that is ...
We see the state of the Country, the economy and our communities failing. Talk of a revolution is empty as you know there is so greater identity for
people to associate with in regards to drawing a line in an 'us versus them' scenario.
There is no need to insult me, claiming I am a child afraid in the corner. Is that your frustration in not having my response being,'Yeah, I've got
my guns lets go a shoot'in' That's ridiculous. You can't even identify a common enemy. Who would you remove from position to regain the freedoms
you've lost? Your local bank teller? She/he is just trying to feed his family doing a job that puts food on their table. The police? Is every police
man and women the common enemy of the American Citizen? Is it the school teachers that fail at educating our children? Is it the President, he is just
one man...one man, that's it. I doubt one man can be the cause of Americas complete declination. Is there a list of people that need to go before
America regains its self? Or is it the breakdown of the family, loss of moral integrity and personal responsibility to blame? Who gets shot in this
Remember hurricane Katrina? That's all your desired rebellion will amount to. People scrambling to feed themselves and random acts of crime. Talk of
rebellion is fun and entertains us as any movie would - but no one here considers the fact that if SHTF you wont be able to trust anyone, safely walk
the streets or simply turn on the lights in your house. So perhaps, in the fantasy your the one scared and in the corner. Or would you be one of the
roaming self-whorshiping heroes committing crimes for the greater good of the American populace that .... doesn't even know you exist. The sad thing
is if the SHTF and you stood up and said you have all the answers hundreds of people would be there telling you that your wrong and vying to remove
you from any position of authority you may have. Again, this talk of organized revolution is nothing but fantasy. A fantasy it would seem you have a
lot of fun with.

The Rodney King riots is another good example of the point I am making. In mass histeria people, hungry people become dangerous and everyone at this
point would be a threat. Everyone would be striving for themselves and the U.S.A would be the last thing on their minds. Don't be so naive that some
mystical 15 or so people could go in and remove the evil unknown elements that are bringing America down would be as success either. As soon as the
power structure that is currently in place is removed another set of like-minded people will quickly take their place. So as to say your revolution
would only require approximately 15 people because 'in your ranks' IRS, FEMA, FBI, CIA, DEA, Etc. are all rearing to jump in and throw their lives
completely off course is incredibly simple minded and absurd.
