i couldn't help but reply.
America by its make up is not designed to have a revolt. the things that tear this country apart (political view, race, religion, hype/scare tactics)
are those things that keep up together. Let me explain further... american in its make up is quite diverse anyway you look at it. in order to stage
any kind of revolt over anything other than a cripling diaster (think yellow stone errupting) you would have to get large groups of people thinking
the same way. In the US you can't do that, for every person who likes pepsi there are 2 other people who like coke and one wierdo drinking rc cola or
orange crush. These cola drinkers will never agree no matter how much logic is involved. if a new cola (idea/something to revolt about) came out that
was amazing in every way you might get one coke and the pepsi drinker to switch but the other coke drinker will blindly stand by his cola and again we
have the weirdo in the corner drinking rc cola just to be different.
now in lybia and egypt you have a different situation where you have large groups of people making up the majority of the population who share common
beliefs in religion, politics etc..., in other words you have 3 people drinking pepsi and probably the rc cola guy there also. if you have 3 pepsi
drinkers that is enough to revolt because you outnumber the other cola drinks by a wide margin.
americans can't agree on anything therefore you will never get enough of them to revolt and make any kind of impact other than showing up on the
nightly news, truth be known you could make more of an impact by writing your congressman telling you have pictures of him naked with the
something in america will eventually have to change, there is an unhappy undertone in alot of groups but those groups are unhappy about different
things. honestly if i were to looking into the crystal ball i suspect the change in america will come from within with the election of a president who
basically doesn't give a damn. someone who comes in, cleans house (gets rid of lobby groups, corruption) and talks to the american people in a way
that doesn't make them feel helpless or retarted. basically a pseudo dictator who rallys the people against the slow and dumb decisions by congress.
he will then leave office but america will see what it should expect. think this sounds crazy, it is rooted in history. several times in the roman
empire it was on the decline or in civil discontent and there would be an emperor who comes along who sweeps away the bad parts the crept into the
system and restored the empire giving it life for hundreds of more years, granted lazy loser emperors brought it back down but that took time. here in
the US we do have these examples also, andrew jackson, FDR, and in alot of ways kennedy. they didn't scrap the system but cleaned out some of the
crap that got in there and set a new path that people after them could follow. and like rome some crappy presidents brought it back down but that took
