It's never too late for dramatic reform rather than revolution.
However, it isn't going to be easy, and it isn't going to happen overnight. Some things take time, and if you want it to happen sooner than later,
then you are just going to end up with something as bad (or worse) than what we already have. Think of it as cooking...
Besides, whether you want Reform or Revolution then you need to have something specific to offer in replacement of what we have now. You can't just
say "It's all borked! The whole thing needs to be thrown out!" Because, if you do that, then all you will accomplish is lots of death, blood, chaos
and opportunity for the rich and powerful to get more rich and powerful. You have to plan and offer workable suggestions, and then convince more and
more people to join the cause to implement that plan.
Revolution should only be the last ditch attempt when all else has failed, because no matter what violence rarely solves anything, it is only going to
cause pain, hatred, and animosity for everyone, and it isn't going to make anything better for a very long time. Even the quickest of revolutions are
followed by decades of poverty, famine, disease, and crime. Trust me, revolution is not what anyone wants unless there all other avenues have been
exhausted and there is no where else to turn for hope. Things would have to get significantly worse before revolution had the potential for making
things any better.
People like Ross Perot and Ron Paul have the right idea. However, the "Old Guard" Bipartisan Politicians have all the power in our system and are
heavily entrenched. The best way to beat them is to join them and use the system against TPTB. Just as they can trick us into surrendering our
Liberties tiny bit by tiny bit, we can convince Government into surrendering their powers back to the people tiny bit by tiny bit, especially if they
think it will placate the Masses or it is an Election Year.
Seriously folks! The reason no one takes any of your talk about Revolution seriously, and why no one ever will is because all this talk about
Revolution without doing anything to make change just shows that you are flapping at the mouth and not willing to walk the talk and put your money
where your mouth is! If you are serious about bringing about Change, then what are you doing wasting your time yapping about Revolution for? You
should be out there actually working diligently to get things done, little by little, until you've moved a proverbial mountain!
If you want to change America, then you are going to have to prove you are serious and willing to do what it takes to bring about Reform by doing the
1. Address all the issues that are universally wrong and broken (not something bipartisan, nor personal) with the Government.
2. Lay out a plan to rectify those problems. How would you change our Governmental Model to fix, for now, and for posterity, those issues that are
3. Get your hands dirty and start promoting those fixes to your Congressperson, to the Media, and to the American People. Eventually, if you put
enough effort into it, and your plans are sound, others will start backing your cause and join you. Your cause will become a Movement, and your
Movement will become a Party, and your Party will get those changes made. It will take a lot of work, and a lot of time, but if your ideas resonate
with the people, then those changes will inevitably come about.
4. You have to be willing to compromise. Compromise doesn't mean give up! If the time isn't right to push Legislative Campaign Reform then drop it
for now. If TPTB aren't ready to allow change to the Balance of Power between the Three Branches of Government then either find a middle ground, or
table it for a later battle.
You are not powerless to fix our Government, but so long as you think you are and spout off empty rhetoric about Revolution, then you aren't ever
going to accomplish anything positive and would frankly be better off going back to watching T.V. and senseless consumerism, because at least with
watching T.V. and senseless consumerism you aren't spreading your disease of co-dependency to your fellow countrymen, and further enabling this
dysfunctional relationship between the Government and the People, and further enabling continued abuse by TPTB.
