with all the countries in the middle east and europe revolting against their governments, when will we do it?

i mean...pretty much every american who has any efing clue as to what "our" government is doing is pissed off and screaming for change. we all want to see the financial situation actually dealt with. we all want to see the 4th amendment (as well as all others) be upheld. we all want to see the end of corporate america. we all want the greedy politicians to go **** themselves. we would all love to see the majority of "our" government thrown into the prisons that they built for it's citizens. hell...we all know that they are the ones who really deserve to be there.

we all want to see equality (not communism). we all want our troops home (again..those of us who actually know what's going on). we all want pretty much everything about "our" government to not only change, but disappear. is some form of government necessary? ABSOLUTELY. i'm not screaming anarchy. i'm just saying...this isn't our country. this is their country that they fool us into thinking is ours.

what is gonna be the final straw? will we follow suit if we see that other countries revolt and actually win? or will we join the worldwide revolution at some critical mass point? i mean seriously...this may not be my country...but this is my life! when will we finally stand up for ourselves? when will the people actually get to be people?

why don't we revolt???

Unlike Europe where people tend to be more 'aware'. I think it would be awhile before that happens here, more people need to be informed of what is actually going on. Change would be cool though, real change, not the change you hear about when politicians run for office lol

If Ron Paul doesn't win then yes, most likely. If we continue like this we're all dead, except the "chosen" few...

The final straw will be when everyone is poor and can't afford to eat AND go to work. Rising gas prices will destroy the USA for sure. The trucking industry is the backbone of the USA. If their diesel prices go up so does everything that is shipped to your favorite Corporate stores. If I see $5 a gallon & rising in the USA for gas I know it's pretty much going downhill from there, just my guess though

People are much to content with thier toys and thier way of life here to revolt. There are not enough people willing to make the changes neccesary for a revolution. Its not like once they are involved they can just go home at the end of the day and watch American Idol. People are much too lazy. It wont happen unless the government take something away from the masses that they are passionate about. Try to take away guns or the internet or something of that sort and you will see the people gathering in the streets to put a stop to it.

Nope, it will never happen here. People are too stupid and lazy to care about making change in this country.

Because the states aren't quite up to the challenge yet. We still have netflix and cheap liquor around the clock...so, there really aren't enough problems to instigate any type of worthy movement.


But let me tell you this - if another nation/state wants the revolution taking place in its country stopped, the U.S. can, and will, go in hot as hell and squash that headache...


Afterwards, they may build a military base there with no regard for local culture and laws, but hey...they got the job done.


So, there...

"Will there be a revolution in the US?" The very minute that American Idol and Next Top Model go off the air.


Americans are SOFT; being one, I hate to say it but it's true. There will never be a true revolution in this country as long as there is satellite TV and Cheetos on the shelves at the local Walmart. No, everyone will be quite content to sit around and confine their bitching to the internet as the Constitution is dismantled and the nation burns down around their heads - UNLESS something quite extraordinary happens proving to everyone all at once that our government needs to go out in a blaze of glory.

Should that impetus come to pass, I'd like to remind TPTB that there are 200 million armed US citizens in the country today. Maybe THAT is why they are building bunkers and stocking up on MRE's.

Until people are willing to give their lives for their posterity, no revolution will happen.

Talking about revolt is far easier than picking up arms and doing what our FF did. They revolted knowing full well that they would most likely never see the fruits of their endeavor. They did what they did for their posterity rather than for themselves. Very few of them ever saw the Republic they died to create.

They died to give us a Constitutional Republic the likes of which has never been seen on Earth. Unfortunately, their victory was short lived and we are now more enslaved than they ever were. We are enslaved by the employees they attempted to shackle with the Constitution. Our current employees scoff at the Constitution and have no fear of it since We the People never hold them accountable for their tyranny...we just bitch.

When men are willing to give their lives to ensure their children and grandchildren no longer live under the current tyranny, a revolution will take place. Until then? Nope.

Freedom isn't free. The cost of freedom is blood.

None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free. (Johann Wolfgang von Goethe)

You are not free and you never will be as long as We the People allow our employees to control US!

The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is it's natural manure. (Thomas Jefferson)

The tree of liberty may well be beyond saving. Liberty is all but gone. We all know the tyrants we'd like to feed to the tree of liberty but until we're willing to feed the tree with our own blood, the tree will continue to wither and die.

Why should the U.S revolt? What's wrong with America?


Everything seems great to me.

Most Americans do not have a clue. I mention the federal reserve printing money and I get a blank look.

After I explain that the "money" the bankers lent them for their mortgage was made on the spot out of thin air, I see jaws drop.


I hand out a LOT of cards with Web of Debt - Dollar Deception: and The Creature from Jekyll Island and Secrets of the Federal Reserve

I also explain what The Bernanke is really up to. Quantitative Easing [QE] or the doubling of the money supply destroys the value of the dollar. It literally steals 1/2 of your savings and could lead to the collapse of the dollar and possibly hyperinflation.

The Irresponsibility of Ben Bernanke and How He Will Destroy the Dollar does a good job of showing how the US government with their "free Trade agreements" Like WTO, and NAFTA have betrayed the American people.


....QE has Keynesianism in its roots. All economists know the solution to unemployment is lower real wages. A central part of Keynes’ theory was the notion of money illusion. Keynes believed that workers would not accept nominal decreases in wages but that they could be fooled via inflation, a belief that only an elitist could have. If the cost of living goes up and wages stay the same, then real wages go down and presumably employment goes up (or down less than it otherwise would).

Inflation, the critical tool in the Keynesian paradigm, has been used regularly.

Since the formation of the Federal Reserve, the purchasing power of the dollar has fallen almost 96%.




Could Bernanke Spark a Run on the Dollar?

....The only real fix is to lower the cost of U.S. workers relative to foreign rivals and machines, or else raise their bang for the buck. The latter, while clearly preferable, requires education and training that won’t turn things around overnight.” (“The Fed’s Magic Show Appears to Be Over”, Wall Street Journal)

In other words, the Fed is planning to give every working man and woman in the US a big pay-cut so they can go nose-to-nose with foreign labor. You can see how this blends seamlessly with Obama’s State of the Union Speech where he focused on “competition” as his central theme. More importantly, Obama reiterated his pledge to double exports in the next 5 years. The only way that can be achieved is by destroying the dollar. Here’s a clip from an op-ed by Judy Shelton that explains what’s going on: “Beware of President Obama’s call for a doubling of U.S. exports over the next five years as a way to reduce the unemployment rate. The obvious quick route to export success for any nation is to depreciate its currency. Dollar depreciation is already being pushed by the Obama administration as the key solution for resolving our massive trade deficit with China………The government will continue to run a large budget deficit, which must be financed by issuing more government debt. The debt is monetized when the Federal Reserve purchases it from the public. The effect is to increase the money supply. Inflationary monetary policy goes hand-in-hand with a falling dollar in foreign-exchange markets.” (“The Wrong Way to Double Exports”, Judy Shelton, Wall Street Journal)So, while working people and pensioners see their savings sliced in half to accommodate the globalist dream of an evenly-depressed world labor market; the investor class will get regular injections of Fed liquidity via QE2 to keep stocks “bubbly” and profits high.....

It's funny you mention that, because 78% of statistics posted are made up on the spot. Haha like mine, but I regress, just poking fun.

I have an addition though, the revolution has already begun. The first wave of the revolution started in the 1960's. The second wave has been more recently. Many have come to help us, we as humans and Earth, move forward from our desperate ways. If you look at the world in a perspective of tens of thousands of years, this life of greed and hate is simply a minor blimp on our ever changing future. People are leaving organized religion and politics, and starting to look for answers themselves, meditation for example. Trust me, there are many people out there that know something is wrong, they simply just don't know what to do or where to look. We have simply forgot that we have two hands and two feet. The only thing stopping the full blown start of our upcoming paradigm shift where everyone is completely free and equal is pleasure of materialistic items. People still enjoy too much TV, video games, money, etc.

We are truly living in a remarkable period of time. People like us are given a choice, and that choice is to live in fear or love. (Heaven or Hell - not religious meaning, but think of it as a mindset) We can either continue our ways, or simply change and move onto a newer mindset (paradigm shift) of how things work. I know I am putting much Trust into our species, and I am scolded for it by many all the time. But seriously, when will you start to believe and trust each other? I am curious at how so many can love their families, but treat others as dirt. Next person you see outside or walk by, simply smile at them, if they don't smile back, they are working way too hard at being miserable. Small things can and will change this world. It starts with one human at a time. (Neo, haha had too)

Apologies for writing so much, but its good to let your mind and heart speak as it will. I just hope that violence will never be involved in this revolution. And if you think it cannot happen without it, your simply thinking inside the box.

I'd suggest that losing the flippant attitude would be part 1.

If you truly wish to be a part of the solution rather than a part of the problem, it requires that you spend some time reading and researching the tenets upon which the nation was founded. You'll have to forgo an evening of TV and "rocking dis joint" to do so.

A revolt to deny allegiance to our goverment is already taking place in my opinion, and this is part of it. Those people that choose to think and believe in finding the truth are the movers of this revolution

The problem is only a few people ever find the way to look outside of what they are fed in propoganda and with so few it seems like the impossible task to better the way this country is headed.

It's sad really, too unfortunate for us as we will all find out soon enough I think.

Item 1: revolution in the US will not occur until fast food places start running short on food, cellular/digital services start getting interrupted, internet usage gets highly restricted, retirement/savings funds start vanishing, and banks put limits on account activities.

As long as people can get to their money, feel some sort of safety for the future, go out to eat at ChokeNPuke's DriveUp, surf the net for funny videos and porn, and do so from their mobile phone, then all is placated and right with the world. There will be no revolution until these things begin to disappear.
If you say that more people going out of work is a catalyst, then you are wrong. With the 10s of Millions of Americans out of work right now, you see where the mentality lies. As long as the gov't will pass out the scraps, the unemployed will remain mostly docile and continue on. Sure, they complain, but its a whisper in a storm. So, settle in because the current nation is not going to change anytime soon.

Item 2: revolution does not have to come at the point of a sword. Regardless of what anyone here thinks, the moment a modern day revolution is incited, will be the day mass graves are dug around the US. With the militaristic capabilities that Homeland and FBI and State/Local police can muster, the common citizen with an AR-15 is just as easy a target at the one with a pocket knife. Mind you, not every LEO or Military individual will stand against revolt, but it only takes a few people piloting drones to take out mass groups of armed and angry civilians.
So, no, while you speak of the millions of armed Americans, do not do so in the same breath as revolt. Defending this nation and one's self is the only reason for arming. When it comes to revolt there are better ways.
Boycotts, Strikes, Marches, Gatherings, Protests and more. That is the solution.

Probably won't happen...
I fought for years(protest, websites, educating people, pamphlets, etc.) and still do, on various topics that need to be paid attention to, but still many did not even acknowledge the issues presented, they were too wrapped up in their little world(TV, McDonalds, taking the kids to Soccer practice, etc).

Once their little world if shut down, I hope they understand and demand change, by then it may be too late.
