What one issue seems to have grabbed the collective will to cause them to get off their couches and make their voices heard? Will this be the catalyst for the collapse of the corrupt system or the match that sparks the revolution?

Here's a collection of recent Town Hall meetings across the US.

Tampa, Florida

Elkhart County, Indiana


Austin, Texas



St Louis

Romulus, Michigan


Mehville, Missouri

Troy, Michigan

And of course the politicians try to spin things in their favor for the sheeple

Pelosi: Town Hall Protesters Are “Carrying Swastikas”

Sen. Boxer: ‘Well-dressed’ protesters at Town Halls are out to ‘hurt our president’

So what do you think? Will this break the camels back?

I think this could certainly be the proverbial straw!

It is going to depend on a lot of things still. Will it last into the fall when the economy starts to drop off, and the Christmas season starts to put stress on people?
*If so, then it will be very dangerous!

How are the politicians going to react? If they continue to belittle and prod, things will escalate quickly!
*Their normal M.O. is to pacify and fein concern. If they do that, they may buy time and the powder keg will need an additional spark.

Will any additional triggers be added to this?
*With people already up in arms over the bill, surely the govt won't be stupid enough to start forcing vaccine on people?!
*Will new taxes start to come to the forefront and illuminate the degree to which Obama is over his head, and is beginning to break campaign promises?
*Will the troops and especially Nat. Guard begin coming home as promised, or will they be redeployed to Afghan or elsewhere? Again illuminating Obama's rhetoric vs. action?
*Will Israel actually attack Iran and polarize the Nation into Zion vs. Anti-Semite.

No. Close. But no. For any form of dramatic change "some thing needs to happen" .. some form of leadership must be formed. It won't be a spontanious rising of folks demanding change.. but it will have to be a significant incident to spark further protesting on a larger scale.
