Well,the correct and proper term is a Rebellion.

A rebellion may be a local revolt or a wide spread revolution.

It may also be a insurrection or just civil disobedience.

The U.S. has a form of regime change every four years.

There is, at any time, some group in rebellion,somewhere in this country or around the world.

The earth is constantly revolving creating a process called evolution .

There is ALWAYS REVOLUTION in some form.

It is natures way.

You are correct, sir. Excellent post.

This "revolution," if it occurs, will in fact be the culmination of the slide into tyranny we began in the cold war. Those who think they will be fighting to preserve the long-embattled constitution are kidding themselves.

You are correct, however, it was not for lack of trying. Louisiana activated it's Nat'l Guard and almost started pulling out of the US, Gov.Long and FDR faced off over domestic policy, there were marches on Washington made up of hungry, homeless, and unhappy Americans. There was violence, widespread confrontations between citizens and police, and the rise of fascists and socialists groups.

mrbarber I believe your words to be true.

As we speak numbers are growing in militias and other organizations. Most of these organizations are secret well founded and very old.

We are all hoping our situation will right itself and it may but I doubt it.

It reminds me of a hornets nest. You have to get every last hornet to consider your job of making the threat of hornets no longer a threat.

The revolution will not come on like gang busters. It will slow;y take over like the moss hanging in my oak trees. You won't know what's happening until one day you notice that oak tree is completely covered in moss.

Take a lesson from La Cosa Nostra and know that silence is good when waging war. You don't advertise your movements and plans of action.

The USA will not be defeated by it's own home grown enemies or those from a foreign country.

We are and will stand unified to preserve our country. Believe it or not.

Revolution = a good way to get rid of the fearful and ignorant

The world is evolving at this moment. The ones who have led through fear and manipulation are losing power. Sit back and watch the world become peaceful.

Or, have your revolution, attempting to take the people out of power who are actually are trying to help us.

I bet everyone seeking a revolution is doing so out of fear. The oldest reaction in the book. Why not try a new one? Fearlessness and faith that the universe is controlling the outcome of our situation. Do you really think evolution is interested in totalitarianism? No, it's interested in what serves life the best.

Get out of the way and let evolution do it's job

Or do it the way humans have always done it, Up to you.

You smell a revolution? I smell something else: BS.

Oh you think something will happen within a few years? What an estimated guess. Something could happen tomorrow. Hell, a Thai protester had his blown head off by the military not too long ago. Could've that been something? No, because no one paid attention to the incident.

You know who really wants a revolution and who will do anything to encourage it?

Those who are negatively effected by policy changes which benefit the average Joe. Such as, protecting the environment, Forcing the media to be honest or be fined and discredited, etc and etc.

You smell revolution? Did you check for dog poo? Your armpits? Perhaps your bottom lip?

Ok, i'm sorry for being snide. These topics make me roll my eyes. People talk about getting back to the constitution... Well, maybe we should stop and consider if the document itself is antiqued. We live in a very different society than that of the late 1700's. Some parts are useful and apply to us, others need to be spelled out to protect rights.

Then we reach the biggest problem though-Revolution, who's calling the shots? And why in the hell should I support you? What is the end result?

It's all a lot of "Let's Fight" and not enough of "Well, what do we fight and what do we do once we beat whoever it is we are fighting?".

Anyone ever see the Movie "V" for Vendetta?
I just watched it again last night.....

Something seems awfully familiar with this story.
Too many Similarities to name.

Here's just a few...


b] Quote from "V"
Words offer the means to meaning, and for those who will listen, the enunciation of truth. And the truth is, there is something terribly wrong with this country, isn't there? Cruelty and injustice, intolerance and oppression. And where once you had the freedom to object, to think and speak as you saw fit, you now have censors and systems of surveillance coercing your conformity and soliciting your submission.

How did this happen? Who's to blame? Well certainly there are those more responsible than others, and they will be held accountable, but again truth be told, if you're looking for the guilty, you need only look into a mirror. I know why you did it. I know you were afraid. Who wouldn't be? War, terror, disease.

There were a myriad of problems which conspired to corrupt your reason and rob you of your common sense. Fear got the best of you, and in your panic you turned to the now high chancellor, Adam Sutler. He promised you order, he promised you peace, and all he demanded in return was your silent, obedient consent.

Quote from "V":Our story begins, as these stories often do, with a young up-and-coming politician. He's a deeply religious man and a member of the conservative party. He is completely single-minded convictions and has no regard for the political process. Eventually, his party launches a special project in the name of 'national security'.

At first, it is believed to be a search for biological weapons and it is pursued regardless of its cost. However, the true goal of the project is power, complete and total hegemonic domination. The project, however, ends violently... but the efforts of those involved are not in vain, for a new ability to wage war is born from the blood of one of their victims. Imagine a virus - the most terrifying virus you can, and then imagine that you and you alone have the cure. But if your ultimate goal is power, how best to use such a weapon?

It is at this point in our story that along comes a spider. He is a man seemingly without a conscience; for whom the ends always justify the means and it is he who suggests that their target should not be an enemy of the country but rather the country itself. Three targets are chosen to maximize the effect of the attack: a school, a tube station, and a water-treatment plant. Several hundred die within the first few weeks. Until at last the true goal comes into view. Before the St. Mary's crisis, no one would have predicted the outcome of the elections. No one. But after the election, lo and behold, a miracle. Some believed that it was the work of God himself, but it was a pharmaceutical company controlled by certain party members made them all obscenely rich.

But the true genius of the plan was the fear. A year later, several extremeists are tried, found guilty, and executed while a memorial is builterected to canonize their victims. Fear became the ultimate tool of this government. And through it our politician was ultimately appointed to the newly created position of High Chancellor. The rest, as they say, is history.

No worries...once Steorn comes out with their "Orbo", the world will be born anew.

Seriously though, this world is globalized to the hilt, and the US is not the weakest link. It´s rusty, but it isn´t going to snap. If the SHTF, it will be global, but the societal ruptures will happen outside the US...at least in the beginning. Keep an eye on the weaker EU nations in the upcoming months. The cracks are much more obvious on the streets than in the US.

If anything happens,that is the american people take to the streets.Then

People will more interested in scoring a free giant t.v. than freedom and justice

What you are looking for is anarchy, where any and all behavior and conduct is acceptable in a society and considered a right. Usually this equates to some alternative lifestyle or abortion.

What you are really wanting is the right not to be responsible for your own behavior and conduct by having some document tell you that it's OK.

I agree, but the only thing that we really need to be blaming them for is interfering too much in our lives.

What are you talking about? I'm a straight, married and pregnant woman. Way to jump to conclusions.

I saw Capitalism: A Love Story.

And I agreed with most of it. But at the end i couldn't help but feel he's part of the agenda to push for revolution. Advocating SOCIALISM as opposed to going back to the American system that worked.

Even his supposedly well informed self calls what we have a DEMOCRACY.

I notice something in the works too.
