    It may be our veterans. Below article talks about the march on the WW 2 memorial and vets carrying the barricades erected to the white house where they were greeted by riot police.

    Anecdotally, my son and in law and daughter attended a navy ball Sat night (celebrating the birthday of the US Navy) and toasts were made by many. The toast with the least applause (eerily quiet) was to our commander in chief. Hmmm

    So perhaps our vets need to lead the revolution against our corrupt President Doofus and his administration?

    What kind of revolution are you talking about? And is it really against the government per se or Obama?

    might I suggest OP lead the way instead of just being a provocateur on message board.

    There are a lot of reasons to be concerned for the future, and stuff like this tops the list for me. This isn't just one man's opinion. There are plenty of groups out there beating these drums and inciting fear.

    I'm all for civil disobedience, but "revolution against our government?" C'mon, man.

    The veterans I know are not about to take up arms because the other party won the White House. I think their common sense, common decency and patriotism is a bit deeper than that.

    I would say the whole thing. A velvet revolution could be on the books.

    Lol... Is there any reason why the freeloaders would join in? Of course this one would be partisan... The workers are against the fed and the freeloaders.

    Seeing what it has been happening, we might need one. DC is out of control. We have a leader of the senate saying that his duty is to the federal government not his constituents, we are on a very dangerous path.

    See my post in this thread.

    Scariest thing I've ever seen happen. There is no excuse for what DC has been directing it's gestapo to do. We are in trouble.

    I remember one of our most prolific ABB posters talking about revolution when Bush was in office. I'll say the same thing to him that I do those who talk about it now.

    Ain't happening.

    If anything you might see something of a covert nature, like what the French did in WW2 when Germany occupied their country. Now that I could see happening, and they (whoever they are) would garner a lot of sympathy and support in their efforts. People have lost faith in the Government.

    This country is currently without any competent leadership. Until someone comes along to lead the country out of the abyss it is in, we will continue to struggle.
    Somehow in the last 5 0r 6 years the extreme left has taken over and is on the verge of destroying the country, both morally and economically.
    My fear is that nobody gives a damn.

    I'll bet you're a closet fan of the Marquise de Sade.

    Important distinction -- the French resistance had a world around then that wanted then to prevail. I am not sure any theoretical resistance to promote capitalism, individualism, economic liberty... in today's climate, where is its allies?

    One would wonder what a potential revolution espousing capitalism, individualism and economic liberty would accompish against a dominant ideology espousing the same ideals. I guess they could seek to "heighten the contradictions" in Marxist terms - there's some ground there, but the space is ultimately limited because there's not all that much revolutionary about the proposed revolution, so it would easily be co-opted, like the Tea Party.

    It sounds like a bunch of TP-talk. No wonder the TP is considered pretty much a pariah by most non-TPers
