If the judicial system is set up by and controlled by those in power deemed traitors by the peoples opinion, how can they be tried? The founders knew the answer is they can only be tried by the people and by force.
There are plenty of other people out there in the world actually shooting our kind right now, so I say drop the revolution/civil war idea.

What side am I on? I'm on America's side, the imperfect, chaotic, greatest country in the world America we have right now. No insult to other countries intended, I'm sure everyone - hopefully - thinks their country is the best. I often wonder if people who propose revolution are even registered to vote. I will take up arms against anyone who threatens my country - including screwball "revolutionaries".

The future weather we like it or not is world government. The best we can hope for at this point is to relocate to the rocky mountain region and hold out as an independant state.

There is no way violence will change anything for the better. The rebelion is outgunned and out smarted. Wayne LaPierre and Ted Nugent standing up to the Marines? No way!
Violence will only lead to a "meet the new boss same as the old boss" scenario if you win...which is highly unlikely.

Governments use violence to accomplish their goals why? Because its effective. They have people so brainwashed to be nonviolent, meanwhile they wage endless wars.
Nonviolent protests accomplish nothing, the politicians and TPTB continue to ignore you and will do so until the end of time. This is why they push non violence, because as long as you buy into that line of bull# you are no threat to them.
Advocates of nonviolence they frequently say that nonviolence works and the principle examples they use of that are ghandi in india and martin luther king in the US. The problem with that is this constitutes a great historical white washing, that in fact the resistance in india was incredibly diverse and ghandi was a very important figure within that resistance, but the resistance was by no means pacifist in its entirety. There were a number of armed guerrilla groups, a number of militant struggles, very important riots and other strong clashes which were a part of the struggle for indian independence. So on the one hand ghandi basically got negotiating power from the fact that there were other elements in the struggle which were even more threatening to british dominance. So the british specifically chose to dialogue with ghandi because he was perhaps for them the least threatening of the important elements of resistance, and if those other elements had no existed they simply could have ignored ghandi.
