If you want to take your country back, that is what you have to do.
There is no getting around it, when powers get used to being in-power they tend to resist "CHANGE"!!!
Any thoughts of a color revolution in the US are treated as "TERRORISM"!!
If you are in the US then you are in a 21st century dictatorship that has the EW capabilities to alter your mind and make you docile.
Personally i don't think Americans have the will left inside to fight a clear and present enemy within, everything is locked down and any "DISSENT" or "RESISTANCE" will be treated as "TERRORISM".
Sorry my US brothers and sisters but "TOO BIG TO FAIL " has become "TOO BIG TO OVERTHROW ".!!!
But know this....
YOU WILL ALWAYS HAVE ALLIES OVERSEAS WHO WILL BE HERE FOR YOU.
NEVER GIVE UP.

WASHINGTON, DC – Protests have swept through the Middle East over the past two weeks, erupting in Tunisia, Algeria, Jordan, and Kuwait. Though the protests appear to be driven primarily by national political and economic issues, and are thus for the most part not directly related, the surprising convergence has many Middle East-watchers looking for common strands and larger symbolism.
Security officers fired tear gas, water cannons and rubber bullets to drive the protesters from the square, where they had chosen to remain throughout the night in protest. An Al Jazeera cameraman was shot with rubber bullets several times, including once in the face, Makary said.
Telephone communication with people in central Cairo was nearly impossible, but Makary reported that the crowds, which had been peaceful, had been forced to escape the police, who fired dozens of tear gas canisters.
Police were also criticized for using the controversial method of “kettling” (the detainment or corralling of large crowds for several hours) to calm the protest. During this time, reported the Mail, several students phoned 999 to tell the police that they were being illegally detained (by the police). Much anger against the police also appeared on Twitter, where one parent wrote, ‘You. Yes you lot. You’re illegally detaining our kids. Let them go NOW. And don’t you dare raise a hand to them.’
In the narrow side streets (Cairo) protesters regrouped, wellwishers on their balconies threw down water for those with streaming eyes from the tear gas. "Wake up Egypt, your silence is killing us," came the yells from below. Others shouted: "Egyptians, come down to join us."
Their appeals were answered with people streaming down from the apartment blocks: "We are change" and "Gamal [Mubarak] tell your father Egyptians hate him," were the cries.

Will Americans have to resort to such drastic measures as Egypt?
Not yet. Americans aren't hungry enough and even our poor and homeless are provided with food, shelter and basic needs. Out of a job? We have programs to help you get through those tough times; unemployment, welfare assistance, etc. Charity is a Christian concept and America was founded on Christian principles. There are plenty of churches and homeless shelters and various nonprofit agencies that work with our poor people. It's one of the reasons why so many people want to come to America. I don't see Americans as being in that dire of straits yet. Discontent is spreading yes, but are Americans starving and dying in the streets or being denied medical care and basic needs? No, not yet. If that changes then who knows? I think it's gonna take people to feel really uncomfortable before they stand up and demand change. Just my opinion.
