A revolt?! Insurection from people that have no history or culture to share with their neighbors.
America, is so diverse people hate or dislike each other because they do not talk or look like them. A revolt..
Not to mention the government is aware of what they are about to do with the people with taxes and whatever else, they know our wages are falling and are reachingi into our pockets to make us poorer to take from our ways to see unbiased news and access to knowledge not in their control, which would make it harder to assemble and communicate.
Especially when they control the the tv airways as well.
I have said it before and will say it again, the Government does not fear the people of this Country. I see no Leader coming bringing the people together to revolt. Their would be so many brutus's it would be halirous, not to mention hif he was white he or she would be racist, if he was mexican, he would be illegal, if he was black he would be socialist..
We are already beaten.. Just watch tv and be a good citizen, As rome burns all around you outside.

Rather than fighting them outright.
Just stop doing things.
Stop paying them $.
Stop buying pointless crap from the store$.
Stop paying for all their crap$.
This is IMHO, the only way to fight.
Using weapons only leads to pain and death, its retarded.

The founding fathers revolted and found the majority on their side, its good that it turned out that way, at least for the USA. So why aren't the US citizens revolting like that today? Because we only have consipiracy thories & individual citizen injustice done to us so far. When we aren't trying to just defend our own rights individually, and find the gov wrong in mass, as in millions of people, then the congress will be hauled out by a mob & any others with them to be held accountable. When millions uprise I'm sure all millitary effort, martial law, will happen. No one really wants that, so we live yet like a horse biting on the bit til the master wips us just a bit too hard.

If Americans really want to stage a revolt that will have real impact then collectively dump ALL cash, clean out your bank accounts, convert to gold and silver and eliminate businesses in favor of a barter and trade network. A citizen economy! No work, no federal taxes, NO MONEY!
Only a few million of us needed and this would destroy them.
Not one shot need be fired.
"We shall unleash the Nihilists and atheists, and we shall provoke a formidable social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to the nations the effect of absolute atheism, origin of savagery and of the most bloody turmoil. Then everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries, will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the multitude, disillusioned with Christianity, whose deistic spirit will from that moment be without a compass (direction), anxious for an ideal, but without knowing where to render its adoration, will receive the pure light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out in the public view, a manifestation which will result from the general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and atheism, both conquered and exterminated at the same time."
-Albert Pike, on a plan for world conquest, written in a letter to Mazzini dated August 15, 1871.
