You seem to believe I represent what the occupy movement does. That couldn't be farther from the truth. While some of your blanket statements might
work on some of the occupy protestors, there are plenty who don't believe in a welfare or nanny state.
The idea is not that which the OWS protestors present. The ideas that Ron Paul presents, of an isolationist country, are the ideas of the founding
documents and fathers of this country. You seek to give creed to that which you have no say to do. You did not fight and die to present forth a new
form of government based on the principles of a Constitution, and until you do, you and the government that controls you are subject to the laws laid
You speak of American isolationism as a new idea, when in reality, it was the creed of America up until the 1900's, and American did fine in that
I do not care about what you think someone else's idea of revolution is - what matters is the idea of revolution that I have presented. How about
instead of spouting the same rhetoric of "all talk, no action" you recognize that plenty of men have been all action. Plenty of men have proven
entirely capable of action, even though their actions did not start a revolution. These are the men you speak of. You speak of soldiers, doctors,
laborers, and countless other people as being "all talk, no action", when you are the very same. Most on ATS are the very same. They will continue
to complain about the problems and about the end of the world, and they will continue to do nothing about it.
Let me clarify one thing for you right now - there will be action. Revolution IS coming and it WILL be fought for freedom from the tyranny that has
been mass produced by our corporate dictators. You, by choosing to fight against such will be fighting against the very idea of freedom at its core.
Is that what you choose to fight for? You fight so that you can guarantee your continuation as a slave to other human beings?
What a sad existence you lead.

So long as people do not give up hope, no revolution will be quelled. A revolution does not take hold through guns and death, but by the longevity of
an idea within the people. All that must be done is plant the seed and that seed will grow as time goes on.
Remember, when it comes to revolutions in history - they were always fought by a small minority of the people. It is through tactics, perseverance,
and information - that such revolutions were able to be successful - even those that went up against the most powerful military in the world using a
small groups of farmers, priests, lawyers, and grizzled veterans. When the revolution comes - there will be no guns or firepower that will stop it.
Thank you for your reply.
I understand why people might be weary of posting their stance. But this is all hypothetical. Do not be controlled by fear of the unseen.
