As we approach July 4, 2013, is America in a pre-revolutionary state? Are we headed for a Tahrir Square of our own with the attendant mammoth social turmoil, possibly even violence.

Plenty of triggers in place, that’s for sure.
Yes, clearly. A free people who once had a voice in how they were governed have entirely lost their voice. Only a minority, constituted of the very wealthy or activist members of “victim” groups, have any sway over representatives in Washington. History says this cannot go on forever. Revolt is actually more likely here than in countries that have never known freedom or representative government, because some Americans know what they’ve lost.

Someone said yesterday, there were only a couple hundred protesting and it could never happen here to which I said Yet...
Stupid people anound!
Yes, I agree, I see come this fall, more tea party protests happening. I see the fall because of the time needed to plan such events and also this being summer vacation season.
Look for what is going on now in Egypt with the HUGH protests to be a major preview of what is to come in this country nationwide this coming fall.
I do not think so.
We are however, in a period of transition.
We need manufacturing. The Dems and GOP both, seem to have bought full-on into exporting American manufacturing to China.
China needs to buy things. Not make things.
Bring back US manufacturing, and return American jobs.
If there is not a party currently supporting such policies, then Sarah Palin and other patriotic Americans should start one.
I would argue that Obama saw the revolution in the faces of tens of thousands on the Mall one cold snowy day. He illegally deployed the IRS to destroy the organizations.
He thwarted the revolution and there is none really on the horizon. The zeal, the fire in the belly is spent.
By and large, conservatives are apathetic
It happened once, it can happen again. Although, it will have to get much worse than today, I am afraid.
Yes we need manufacturing jobs.
Even so, there is a growing frustration with our political process.
So I have to disagree with you, look for protests come this fall, mark my words.
Egypt? You compare us to a culture that has men jumping up and down in the streets? Gimme a break.
Nope, wrong again, the tea party movement is resurging, on the local, county, and state levels. They are a warm-up.
Look at what is going on now in Egypt to be a preview to what could very well take place in the fall.
Yes. Only a couple of things are necessary to ignite it:
1. A charismatic leader
2. A precipitating event
And it’s on ...
I truely do not know where this people get their news, MSM is the likely culprit I suppose...
Especially older Americans who have lived most of their lives in freedom and have distinct recollections of a very different America.
The Founding Fathers would be dismayed that it's still "pre-"
To correct you, it does SEND a message back to us, if you want to rescue freedom back to the USA you have to STAND UP for them.
Except you overlook the one thing I mentioned, which even if everything else remains unchanged, changes things dramatically in America:
Much rides on her approach to World Trade.
The GOP and the Democrats are both anti-American now.
That is the big problem.
If however Sarah does not step up for the fight, then maybe you are right.
