i dunno, but if you're gonna string anyone up you better be damned sure they deserve it first.
or you'll get a situation like the french revolution, where you got strung up just because you were born into a position or rich.
there might be some rich powerful people or just well off people, who would side with the people and would give up much of what they own to help others.
people should be careful not to target others just based on their wealth or position alone, without first ascertaining their true involvement or allegiance.
dont bring back the french civil war trials. that was horrific. and look what happened. isn't it nice to see how the wealth in france is shared equally, there are no bastards at the top and there's an end to poverty?
oh, no/??? that didnt' happen, after a so called 'people's revolution'??? that the french still pride themselves on??
NO IT DIDNT. there are still classes and divided wealth in france; the haves and the have nots; nothing has changed really.
robespierre and people like that rose to power from the revolution. bonaparte, who crowned himself emperor.
so a plan is pretty important; and not killing the wrong people; not judging a book by its cover too; is as well.

I'd say it more likely would be a civil war, but all civil wars are Revolutionary Wars .. it just depends on who wins .. if the Nation wins, it was a civil war.. if a new power takes over, it was a Revolution ..

Barack Obama has done nothing but lie to us the entire time he's been in office. He promised our troops would come home and sent more.
He promised he was against the patriot act and funded it.
He shows no sign of any emotion towards the oil spill or BP.
