I don’t think we’ll ever revolt against the government no matter how tyrannical it beocomes. As a nation, as a people, we’re too fat, lazy and comfortable. Not all of us...but as a nation this is true.
Believe the “boiling frog analogy” is appropriate here. Unfortunately.
And miss the NFL playoffs? Are you kidding?
If pushed far enough, I think so.
I am 60 years old.
Get off my lawn.
Our Forefathers would’ve never succeeded if the British had nuclear weapons.
That was always the criterion. Totalitarians recognize this and try to push the envelope, always, as our own are doing at the moment. Nobody sane wants to start shooting anyone if it isn't necessary.
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...
Soap box, ballot box, jury box, cartridge box. The media soap box has been expropriated, the ballot box corrupted, the jury box overruled. I don't get the sense that the ones pushing the envelope have any idea how very close they're coming to the last resort. I do get the sense that they think they can control it when it happens. Every ruling class ever overthrown felt thought so, and they were all wrong.
What we really need is a great General Turdgeson or twenty.
The fighters in Afghanistan don’t have high tech and we’ve been there for, what, 12 years now? Viet Nam was no easy task either.
Voting is obsolete. We just allowed the ruling party to use the IRS to win an election, and the Civitas database probably was fed FBI and CIA and NSA data as well as IRS data. Nobody seems to be doing anything about that, so Iassume that the next election will see the same tools, tactics, and databases used again.
The public might be more willing to revolt if the Republicans in Congress would do their job, but instead of leading the way, they keep ignoring Obama’s abuses of power.
They sure didn't have any trouble revolting against the Johnson and Nixon governments.
But do you think that if the bureaucrats who transmit the orders to and pay the soldiers and cops suffered a ten percent cull that the rest of them would continue to resist us? Or even show up to work, for that matter?
The elections weren't rigged and fraudulent. We lost fair and square. We lost because our Santa Claus wasn't as generous as their Santa Claus. It's the demographics that are killing us. Now that the "gibs me dat" class is outnumbering the hard-working productive class, the Santa with the biggest bag of "free" stuff will continue to win.
Take solace in the fact that one of these days the money is going to run out and the free ride will be over. Santa's bag will be filled with nothing more than empty promises. That's when things are going to get really interesting around this place!
Barring a disaster somewhere on the scale of a nuclear war, this government is here to stay...for the foreseeable future, anyway.
Most Americans are too lazy to bother.
Revolt is coming.
I think what is happening is that as the thugs in business suits that occupy the District of Criminals continues to increase their tyranny the reaction is to flee from it, but sometimes go to court and fight over it. And as more try to avoid Fedzilla the more tyrannical they become and thus the Vicious Circle gets more obvious and dangerous.
Slowly people are begining to wake up and smell the coffee. The problems with Obamacare is one sign.
“King eventually just relented rather than continue to ...try to keep control... from all those thousands of miles away.”
Excuse me! Can you say Kings Mountain? (Battle of)
Old king George’s top man got his a$% kicked here in S.C.. Then our people chased the rest of them back to Charleston..
I believe George’s troops made a deal, when they got to Charleston and found out there was no where to go.
It went something like this....
“If y’all will let us live we won’t burn the town down while we fight..
Done deal, we like Charleston so y’all can go..
Our troops up North heard about the whipping the South gave the English.
That rallied our American soldiers up North to fight and sent them all packing back to England..
English didn’t control nothing down South.
Saying and doing are far apart.
Attacking the Southern portion of America will be the next attackers down fall to..bet on it..
