Man, there are so many variables in that scenario that would have to be regulated, I don't know. in between any one of those steps a wrench could be
thrown in the works. I appreciate the detail, but I'm not sure if we have time to make all that work. Star for effort though bro.
I've considered this subject for some time - longer than many would imagine - and I have yet to hear of one other legitimately possible alternative
solution to the two I have mentioned here.
Although - indeed - their are many variables involved - how is that different from any other approach?
It is a common occurance - over time - for dictators to come into power in former democracies/republics and this would be no different.
One simply would have to bring the right grass roots candidate to power - not unlike Ron Pauls underdog bid - and then let him settle into business as
usual while his "agents" look for loyal men in his Govt and Military to back his power grab.
(many in all levels of power in the U.S. would jump on such a scheme given the chance - like all of society there are many who find the corruption to
go to far among their current bosses - but who see no avenue for reform)
Played right - the candidate could easily seize dictorial power through existing mechanisms - and use his loyalists to run a blitzkreig on his
Even Plato suggested a Benevolent Dictator was actually the Highest form of Govt. - with Democracy being the lowest and most untennable.
If you ask me - it is unlikely - the sheeple won't awaken - and those with understanding won't risk singling themselves out to support such a
movement - but - if the right tools of marketing were applied - and the sheeple were sufficiently moved - it could in actuality happen and be quite
amazingly succesful - a perfect storm as radicial as the movement that forged our young Republic!
Personally I am patiently awaiting the second option - revolution by force or by technological superiority - there are many game changers that could
come about as we race towards the Singularity - and chance - as always - favors the prepared mind.
I, and many like-minded individuals, are keeping our options open - our bodies conditioned - and our minds ready for the chance to bring forth a new
world order from the ashes of the current Kleptocracies around the world.
Time will tell if we will be succesful - but even in defeat we WILL live on our feet as FREE MEN and never on our knees as slaves to the system!
I encourage those of understanding everywhere to join us - with your wallets as well as your time!
