1/3 supported, 1/10 did something, 1/33 actually took up arms.
And they won.
We CAN do this again and restore our Republic.
In today’s numbers that’s 10,500,000 would actually fight and w today’s weapons, it was the size of WWII Soviet Army.
“We CAN do this again and restore our Republic.”
Not likely. Almost half the population doesn’t even bother to vote.
It’s not 1776. Anybody that works a job, uses a cell phone, has cable or internet, buys anything at all with a credit card,has a bank account, or even a light bill, leaves a trail that’s easy to follow.
It’s not going to be like the fantasy that seems to prevail here.
The general population will not view the “New & Improved Minitemen” as freedom fighters.
The media will paint any such actions as terrorist acts and every TV show from COPS to FN&F will make political hay promising to bring the terrorists in dead or alive.
There’s a lot of chest thumping here, but I’ve had personal experience with a situation like that through an aquaintance I once had. The guy seriously Pissed Off the FBI. Trust me, when they show up to ask you a few questions it’s disconcerting, even if you have no idea about anything. The FBI interviewed everybody this guy knew.
This isn’t Colonial Boston. Taking to the woods with your trusty musket isn’t going to do anything but get you on a terrorist list and all your assets frozen as well as causing a major amount of grief for everybody you’ve known in the last 10 years.
I believe that most people are pretty comfortable with the illusion of freedom. You know you’re free to do the the things that society approves.
As long as the TV gets 500 channels and the internet connection works everything is fine.
