One part of this is correct. Most people do only care about the car they drive, the salary they earn, and the belief that if they work hard the dream is there for them to achieve.
Latest US polls show that only 1 in 5 Americans still believe the American dream is Alive.
50% of College grads are unemployed or under employed.
Racial tension are growing and the flames are intentionally being fanned by our Government and a compliant Left wing media.
Agencies like the BLM are pushing land issue across the West.
And EVERYWHERE we have the overwhelming sense that our leaders are NOT acting in OUR interests... but in their own.
Crony capitalism has seen billions given to companies based on politics and most of this money has disappeared.
Our Government is demanding more from "producers" and giving it away to "supporters".
All of these factors combine to create a fertile recruiting environment.
Would half the country have stood up if shots had been fired in Mesquite? No
But the Federal Government and Citizens would have suffered casualties, the "authorities" would have been cleared of wrongdoing just like the murdering POS sniper Lon Horriuchi "who killed Vicki Weaver with a head shot while holding her infant daughter".
...and the Feds would have sought to prosecute the citizens who fired back in self defense.
Corrupt grand juries and corrupt federal judges excusing deaths in a situation caused by Federal mercenaries over COWS would make the Boston Masacre look a trivial event.
When it does happen here, it will be caused by Federal Cops over reaching and not backing down "like they did in Mesquite".... and the rally cry that will draw enough support to see it carried through will be ACCOUNTABILITY.
Sitting politicians who have refused their Constitutional duty to hold each other to the rule of law WILL be removed from office, charged, and tried as the criminals they ARE.
The "demands" of the revolution will be "reasonable and just" for the express
Purpose of allowing the Governments "paid protectors" to do the right the right thing by arresting and handing over the criminals they are paid to protect, rather than push a situation that would lead to bloodshed.
They WILL do this because the notion of "officer safety"... And their unwavering belief that they have a RIGHT to return home safely every night WILL trump any loyalty they may feel to their political bosses the MOMENT they see that they are outgunned.
I rally don't wish to see any of this happen but I also can't be the only one here who studies "Game Theory"
Any individual or group who can anticipate the oppositions response to their actions can and will defeat that opposition regardless of outside factors.
When the opposition is a Government who creates a protocol and a training manual for everything they do... Anticipating them is quite easy to do.
The only X factor is the requirement for "some" people with ability to "think" and the willingness to "fight" to stand up and resist... And there is NO SHORTAGE of these traits in America.
