Actually I came to my own opinion just fine. You know how I did it? I read your words. I asked you questions and read your answers. Your idea is ill informed, ignorant, and a fantasy. You talk a great deal but you do not mean any of it.
You are going to stand up for all of us and be the first one to fire or take fire...but not until you see if the world ends in 2012 first. You care so much about this cause you claim to feel so strongly for...but you are going to wait for a few more elections and 3 years to go by first.
Thanks for implying that 3 people run the opinions on this board but it just is not true.
Did you ever stop to consider that some may have the same interests as you, hold different opinions, solutions and view of history and not actually be stalking? I for one am not stalking and your sensitivities can not stop me from expressing myself in anyway I see fit within the bounds of T&C.
If you are offended by my participation; the answer is simple....click ignore.
Also I would imagine a leader or instigator of a revolution might need more guts than to be given "grief" by a few www. opponents. BTW I don't view you as an opponent or enemy.
An epiphany! How grand!
Perhaps I can use the back of my degree to draft a new Constitution or Declaration or Independence...
Hey I figured out where our good buddy the OP get's his 2014 deadline for revolution...
Oh And BTW. Didn't you write this?

This is why I cannot level with some of you on anything. You claim you formed YOUR opinion just fine yet you belittle mine.
What in God's green Earth has made YOUR opinion better than my opinion?
How is my opinion any more "ill informed, ignorant, and fantasy" than yours is?
My opinion on revolution has history backing it up - MULTIPLE TIMES where as the belief that peaceful change will solve everything is led by the rope of blind faith and assumptions.
You assume that the system isn't so corrupt already that it can be fixed.
You assume that the game isn't rigged so that you can't change it. You assume that eventually the government will listen to you - all with countless acts of history standing AGAINST your claims. AGAINST THEM!
This country was FOUNDED on the beliefs that I hold that revolution was the only way out of a mess where we are ignored and belittled. To deny this is to deny history - and to deny history makes you no better then those who are in charge.
Secondly, you claim that I "don't mean any of it" but I have to ask - how do you know me? Do you know my actions? Do you know what I do off of this site or what kind of person I am?
The answer is NO, you do not. I will not claim to know and belittle who you are, so I would expect the same from someone else. I stand behind every word I speak and I am not afraid to say when I get into something that is over my head. Perhaps I might not know all the answers, perhaps some people might not agree with my views - fine - but I am entitled to those views. At the very least - I am TRYING to breath new life into this republic whereas almost everyone else would try to continue feeding the dying animal.
Wait? No no no. Waiting would assume that I would be doing nothing. Let us change your wording to more suit what it really is "preparing". Oh sure I could crash a plane into a building, I could attempt to shoot up a government building - but honestly anyone with half a brain would know that it wouldn't accomplish jack.
And what is the point of caring about a cause if the people you are fighting for won't be here when the time comes?
What would be the point of freeing American people in a revolution that could take years if something catastrophic would just happen to the world?
If I had been given more time, perhaps I wouldn't have set the deadline and perhaps I might have seen the trade off as worth it. Right now, anything short of killing or enslaving American citizens I will be patient so will most of us.
I'm sorry but I never implied that. I do believe I explicitly states that those three people post in nearly EVERY one of my topics using any tactic whatsoever to discredit me. I believe I referred to them as "stalkers". Never did I mention that they held a monopoly over dissenting opinion against mine, they are just the three who would attack the person rather than what he is saying.
As far as I can tell, you don't even compare to the grief those three have given me over the last year. For that, I appreciate your comments.

2 and one half % of the population is not a landslide. Sorry to break it to you.
Let's say in 2012 Obama for whatever reason doesn't run. But another Democrat wins the white house. He or she wins by 8 million votes. In three months he or she declares marshal law and begins marching people to FEMA camps. According to you it would be unpatriotic to resist because they were elected fairly. WOW!!!
