More than likely, by that point I wouldn't be in my home. I would have left long ago and been on the run as a "suspected terrorist" in today's
Based on the way things are now, I would be one of the men in the camo fatigues doing my best to lead the others in a way that won't result in
useless, inefficient blood shed.
The problem with the OP is the fact that it makes it sound as if a revolution would be a Civil War style battle with troops facing each other head to
head and taking turns firing their guns at each other. The simple fact is that if it occurred, at least in the beginning stages, you wouldn't even be
aware of the "patriots in camo" because they would be hidden in the woods or various metropolitan areas in secret. They would be rallying the
support of citizens and explaining their cause, and they would be doing battle strategically so as they might stand a chance.
You must understand that when a force outnumbers and out-arms an opposing force, the only chance that the other force has is to rely on guerrilla
warfare to survive and slowly build towards an objective. You could bet that within days you will see small towns used as communes and bases in order
to resupply and rethink strategies for the revolutionary forces, and it would not be by force but rather open acceptance.
Sadly, their will be the "rambo" types that for some ungodly reason will believe that they can stand up to the firepower of the worlds most advanced
army. They will die in vain if they do not get their acts together and use their heads. It won't be about who can have the biggest head count or the
numbers in the battle, it will be about who stands for the better ideals and who has a better reason to fight. It will be about who can gain more
support from the common citizen, and if it comes to that point, we already know that the common citizen will not have much good to say about the
Regardless, unless it is reckless fighting by either side, I don't see a revolution pouring into private homes and involving those who don't wish to
be involved. Undoubtedly there will be exceptions where it cannot be helped, but for the most part anyone who wants to take part in it will be able
to, and anyone who does not should be relatively safe.
This is the way I see it happening.
