There is alot of news lately about Governments being overthrown and people violently revolting.
It seems that when citizens of other countries do it they are hailed as heros while a violent revolution in your own country is scorned and met with
Here, in the U.S. we have The Constitution which clearly states,
"--That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute
new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their
Safety and Happiness".
Now, I don't know about you but I don't think that our government is going to just LET us abolish it without a fight.
Once people have power they don't just let it go.
I know there are ALOT of people who condemn even the idea or mentioning of Violent revolution here in the U.S.
They call themselves, "Patriots". Patriots "Love" their country. "Love" like an abused wife "Loves" her husband and will lie to their
friends,family,co-workers, and even the police when help is offered.
"I ran into a door" "I fell down the stairs" "it was my fault, I deserved it".
When it all comes down to it "We The People" are the ultimate protector and defender of our constitutional rights, not the Government.
My question goes out to the "Patriots" who "Love" their country. the people who condemn even the use of the words Violent revolution or the idea of
Overthrowing our/their government. This is ONLY a question and in NO WAY to be taken as a "call to arms" or even a "suggestion". I am simply asking a
question that I would like an answer to because I am curious abou the inner workings of the minds of so called "patriots".
Question 1) Is there EVER a time when YOU would support a violent revolution/ Overthrowing of our/your own government? yes/no
please answer that question first.
Then, only after answering that question, proceed to question two.
Question 2.) Under what circumstances?/ WHEN????
Just a little mental exercise for those of you who condemn the use of such inflammitory words.
These are not rhetorical questions and I would seriously be interested in picking the minds of "Patriots".
Edit to add:
For those of you uncomfortable with answering yes remember,
This is only a hypothetical question and in no way means you currently support the overthrow of your respective countries.
