What do you think?

"We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness. - That to secure these rights, Government are instituted among Men...That whenever any form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right Right of the People to alter or abolish it..." - Declaration of Independence

Why don't people start revolutions anymore? Everyone is so pissed off about what the government IS doing and what they're NOT doing, so why aren't we doing anything about it?

  • It may come as the unemployment continues to rise and The libs keep handing down more and more taxes. I just saw on the news that when you factor in the number of people who are still unemployed yet have ran out of unemployment benefits the unemployment rate pushes 25-35% in many areas.

  • There is a revolution brewing, look around you. If people would take the blinders off they would see its coming and all they have to do is join.

  • We are doing something. Tea Parties are the civilazed ay of "doing something" There are groups that are singlehandedly going against Dems to get them knocked out of Congress. The regular public is out there looking for good conservative people to take the place of Rinos in congress. There are factions of the media who are getting the truth out about what is going on in DC.
    We are not going to pick up arms and start blowing people away. Thats just not the way things are done anymore. You need to do some research. Things are being done.

  • We did do something. The people stood up and said we'd had enough and got Obama elected.

  • There will be a revolution when people stop looking at the President with hatred or admiration and realize that the time for reliance on "government efficiency" has long since passed and it is time for us to stand together or fall together. I think that many of us have forgotten that "United we stand and divided we fall." The time for revolution is here and now and we need to get on that band wagon before it passes us by.
