If It's Our Constitutional Right to Overthrow Corrupt Government, Why Don't We Do It?
all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed...

Tell that to our senators and president who order people to their deaths like pawns in some rich man's chessgame. They are the most unAmerican in that they threaten the security of all our citizens by making us a target.
Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security
When governments fear the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny.

So the question is "If It's Our Constitutional Right to Overthrow Corrupt Government, Why Don't We Do It?"
... despite ample justification, we lack unity and the means to overthrown our corrupt government, and the people as a whole are kept dumb and pacified just enough.
French involvement proved decisive yet expensive, ruining France's economy and driving the country into massive debt. A French naval victory just outside Chesapeake Bay led to a siege by combined French and Continental armies that forced a second British army to surrender at Yorktown, Virginia in 1781. Fighting continued throughout 1782, while peace negotiations began.
In 1783, the Treaty of Paris ended the war and recognized the sovereignty of the United States over the territory bounded roughly by what is now Canada to the north, Florida to the south, and the Mississippi River to the west. A wider international peace was agreed, in which several territories were exchanged.

The vast majority of the military are regular Americans. How can they stand for this oppression? Take command of things for a few months while everyone simultaneously holds elections to fill all the offices. ...
But how do we convince the military to help us?
