You all should know the story of the American Revolution, and how in its simplest form, our forefathers rebelled against their oppressors, who happened to be one of the world superpowers at the time, because of "taxation without representation." These men, mostly of wealth and priviledge, risked their lives, despite impossible odds, for the hope of a better way. That is not to say they were not flawed, as all humans are. But they stood up and fought for freedom and independence, risking everything, and against all odds, they won.
So what i am looking for here is feedback from my fellow ATS'ers, both Americans and otherwise, on how you could see the New American Revolution, circa 2011, going down.
Lets take into account what rallied our forefathers, and how it compares to our times.
Lets put some thought into this and try to refrain from getting bogged down in U.S. bashing or flag waving. There are dozens of other threads you can go to if your into that. Let us concentrate on the common ground, if it exists, that can unite enough Americans, regardless of race, gender, religion, or bank balance, as a potent revolutionary force.
Ok.. so I live in the Kansas City Area. I think it would be best if we were to locate members that live close by and create some sort of organization face to face rather than just sticking with a keyboard and a monitor so that we could make some real progress. Anybody else from Kansas City?

You wanna keep playing by the rules, be my guest. We've been playing by the rules for way too long now. How else do you think we've gotten ourselves into this situation in the first place?
