When i was with my friend on our way to camping for a birthday party, he asked, "Are you ready for therevolution?". Ive never really thought about a revolution. But with Obama's new health care suppose to come out and be passed by the end of the year, what if it did happen soon? Would you be ready? I know i wont be. I hope it does happen. It may sound crazy that i would hope that, but i really do. I want to help people. I would join the military if i was helping the people of USA. But we havent actually fought for our country since the supposed Terrorism on 9/11. And we already took out Afghanistan. But i digress. Are you ready for the revolution? What would u do to get ready? How would u protect the ones u love?

It really gets my goat that of all the f'd up things that this and past administrations have done, people want to revolt over a health care bill. Never mind illegal wars, the loss of rights, but take people's money and give it to the poor and HOLY LORD we're gonna have a revolution.

Not that I'm saying the health care bill is a good thing because it most certainly isn't but I'm so frustrated right now with these people not giving a flying flip about anything else the've done to screw us over until the threat of "spreading wealth" came along. It's all about the gawd dang money!

Whew! Anyway, I really had to get that out...

I'm all about getting rid of every single dode in Washington and showing those people whose boss but, if we started a revolution, then what? I'll tell you...more of the same ole crap...

Conservatives blaming libs for the worlds woes and vice versa. If we can't even have a united front to start this revolution, what makes ANYONE think we can be united in the aftermath and restore America back to what it should be?

There won't be a revolution. If anything, there will be a civil war. Big difference and I want no part of that. My problem isn't with any one party it's with the greedy, power hungry sadistic elite--no matter what there party affiliation.

The only ones wanting to "revolt" are conservatives and they want to throw out the dems and liberals in congress, maybe a few repubs. Just like it was when Bush was prez and the roles were switched and the libs wanted to throw the repubs out. Now they feel safe and the conservatives will only feel safe with a republican president.

I back this up with the fact that it was Bush who took away our constitutional rights with the PATRIOT Act and the FISA bill, executive orders to instate martial law, and not one conservative cried about it. They called liberals unpatriotic for daring to speak out against the administration and said it was them who were making America look weak by giving the impression to the rest of the world that we didn't support our president so the libs needed to get with the program.

Now that the tables have turned, the conservatives call themselves patriots and the libs call them right wing wackos. Now it's okay for the conservatives to speak out against the administration and show the world how unhappy they are with the president. But the liberals are now sitting back with smiles on their faces because, apparently, Obama is going to bring about some kind of utopia and save the world.

I don't want either of these kinds of people starting a revolution. They botch it up, big time!

Exactly who is going to revolt, and against whom?

Everything that's wrong with this country, we've done to ourselves.

People like to pretend here that some nebulous "PTB" has done it, but let's not kid ourselves, the powerful are only powerful because they have ordinary citizens going along with them.

the funny thing is, my brother sean had a reoccuring dream that started about 10 years ago and still happens to this day, where he is in the military and is on a navy ship when a huge war happens. He is safe on the ship for awhile, because most of the attacks are on land, but eventually his ship gets attacked and he manages to escape on a military raft with a few others who survive. they become freedom fighters when they arrive on land and then his dream ends.

My brother joe also said he had a very similar dream where he saw sean under the same circumstances and they were both freedom fighters with hundreds of others.

the interesting part? Sean just joined the military this month.

just curious if you have read any of the health care plan but it has nothing to do with the government taking any rights away from us.... I don't know why you think that would cause a revolution

What's to get ready for? Its only gonna last for a couple of hours at most. I figure we'll let it go that long just so we can enjoy to looks of utter shock on all the people's faces, when they have to come to terms with what they are fighting against.

I figure a large Popcorn and a Soda will get me through it.

"revolutions eat their hero's"

only a fool wish's for a car wreak , the same is true of revolutions .

the people who start them are most likely the first to die in one , those who fight against them lose everything , and the real winners in a revolution are the people who have nothing to lose , because they have nothing now .

there is no safty in revolution , and if you know who is winning , your being lied to .
planning , schedules and order are for people who have goals that will get other people killed .

stay in the moment , be where you stand , do what's in front of you the best that you can , and move on .

lead , follow or die ... pick one , default answer is die .
bad leaders are kill'd by their own
bad followers are kill'd by the bad guys
the confused are ust kill'd

the good news and bad news

it is highly unlikely there will be armys in the streets , rageing gun battles everywhere , and black mask'd gov agents kicking in doors .

what is highly likely... when the money runs out... goverment will not go quietly ...
the men in the shadows will crawl out from under their rocks and do in the light of day... what they have been doing for decades in the shadows.

do not pick a side , do not beleive , do not trust any one or anything that yells " follow me " , " patriot " ! .

free men , or free of this earth !

god , family , country ... I do not follow men , I follow the constitution .... my faith is in higher things .
small goverment , good people , and ....

you make my life hard , and I will make your life short .
leave me be... or leave me ....

militia's are not the answer , but they are a good patch while we find answers .

it is time govermental organizations , police , and military state clearly... are you for the constitution , or against it .

big goverment , or cut off the money .

its that simple .
a solvent goverment and a world of tax payers that keep their ideas to them selves , eyes lowered , and work hard .

or a goverment that is afraid of its citizens ...

their was middle ground befor... but that sand is washing away swiftly ... with two rivers flowing swiftly on either side ....

when the rivers meet... it will not be pretty , or peaceful .

god makes rivers ... goverments only dam things .

free people make business , create , grow and build .
goverment can only stop , slow , block or redirect .

control is happyness ... the more control you have over breathing , the happier you are...

when your head is held under water... and some one else controls what air you get... you are not happy , you tend to be fearful of the person who has that control .

control is happyness... to the degree you have control , is your level of happyness ...

freedom assume self control...
the parent mind telling the being child to sleep , eat , clean their room ...

socialism assume govermental control...
the parent state telling the citizen child how to live .

control begins with in the skin , with in the skin control begins.
control your self , or others will control you .
revolution is a dangerious place , with dangerious people , doing dangerious things . and you don't want to give them in control of you .

and for those in goverment or apathic history is a good read now.

Income redistribution doesnt violate any rights?

Are you serious?

posted on Aug, 16 2009 @ 08:55 PM
yeah ... its pretty strange that not only sean, but my other brother dreamed such similiar dreams, and more than once.

and sean is a very honest and trustworthy person who doesnt just go around making up stories. i know he was telling the truth.

he told me all of this long before he joined the military. So i find it pretty odd that it all seems to be unfolding... especially since he never struck me as the type to actually join the military

thats why when he told me about that dream years ago i just laughed.. because he doesnt seem like the military type.

thats all i know about the dream for the time being though.

I had a dream however that was very prominent to me and occured more than once also. I dreamed that Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia was under attack and missiles were soraing through the city, destroying everything.

It striked me as a little strange since kuala lumpur is a very prominent place of wealth and the tallest building in the world is there

An armed revolution? never would happen. i will repeat that. never...

I know im usually the one saying..."Never say never"...bu tthis is one of those things I am very certain of.

This age is different than any other age. non violenbce is stressed at every corner of society. It is ingrained in even the most militaristic of minds (in America).
Im not saying I agree with it ior disagree with it..

But you can bet one thing is true in life, and many know of it.

To quot ea popular verse in a popular book:

"Live by the sword. Die by thw sword

So the question for you is (since you are hoping for such a revolution) are you ready to die for your beliefs?

You are right, it won't last long.

US Citizens buy enough guns in 90 days to outfit all of the Chinese and Indian Militaries

Once it starts ppl will remember why the bloodiest war the US ever
fought was its Civil War, which was not very civil.

I am sitting it out, because odds are we will just get another form
of corrupt government.

You also bought 1,529,635,000 rounds of ammunition in just the month of December 2008. Yeah that is right, that is Billion with a “B”. This number takes no accounting of reloading or reloaded ammunition.

Yes, in 30 days time that much ammo was bought, and ppl are still
buying it.

What branch did he join? Some branches spend more time on ships than others.

posted on Aug, 16 2009 @ 09:01 PM
I think it has allready started . Town hall meetings where they fired the mayor,police chief and some other city workers are just the begining. There is a reason ammo is hard to find. To many angry people.It will snowball.

posted on Aug, 16 2009 @ 09:06 PM
im not sure exactly what branch he is in.. all i know is his job is to put together parachutes and practice parachuting with helicopters

posted on Aug, 16 2009 @ 09:09 PM
i believe he said it was the marine corps or navy. he definitely said it wasnt the army.

bring it on............

enough of this s####

life is to short............... wanna have some fun

It's funny I've been hearing about a upcoming revolution for years. Only in the past two years could I actually agree something was brewing. Methinks all the outrage is coming from the disappointment of yet again being promised the world and having the promises ignored once they have gotten elected. Hubris on the part of elected officials and it will cost them.

An armed revolution will never happen? You sound mighty certain of that, but I wouldn't put any money on it.

Besides, it won't be up to you or people like you with that mind set.

That quotation "Live by the sword, Die by the sword?"

Thing about that sword:

It cuts both ways.
