There has been a second revolution in America. The Constitution is dead and absolutely nothing is now beyond the scope of the central government's power.
I have a feeling in my gut that there will eventually be a second revolutionary war, we need it, how else could we possibly ever eradicate the poisonous corruption that runs deep in the veins of our government.
Forty-seven percent of American adults currently report that they have a gun in their home or elsewhere on their property. This is up from 41% a year ago and is the highest Gallup has recorded since 1993, albeit marginally above the 44% and 45% highs seen during that period.
Results for this Gallup poll are based on telephone interviews conducted Oct. 6-9, 2011, with a random sample of 1,005 adults, aged 18 and older, living in all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia.
For results based on the total sample of national adults, one can say with 95% confidence that the maximum margin of sampling error is ±4 percentage points.

If by revolution you mean an armed insurrection, I would say no, that is the last thing that we need. The political system is broken and being held hostage by extremist on both sides, but I don't believe that it is broken beyond repair.
The cost of a violent revolution (in lives and capital) would be beyond anything the world has seen. Not to mention the fact that we would be low hanging fruit for any of the remaining large powers to grab.
If by revolution you mean local activism and working within the law and the current political system, then yes, it is absolutely time to act.
