I would but I'm British - hellooooooo!
It's alright my dear how could you? lol!
They're already revolting.
The best way to revolt is with your vote. I do this EVERY election.
The premise of our gov't is fine. What needs to be fixed is the overspending, over taxing and waste.
deluded. Your vote means nothing, get it through your thick ******* skull yank
I agree, It has just begun.
Millions have died to defend what we call america, who would I be not to do the same.
millions already have, you seem to be a bright one.
maybe? hurry and ask, i got to travel but i can get back here pending on what you need. is it for a school project?
Canadian. But against my own government? Well maybe, it'd have to be at the right time for the right reasons. Not just 'cause.
My state already is trying to revolt by not setting up a health care program and trying to live the union
It'll take a lot to revolt against the gvernment because most people don't know their rights and how the government are doing things that aren't constitutional
Nope, i live in the UK!!!
I'm Australian, we can't be bothered with that kind of sh1t
I'm doing that now by being behind in my payments to the IRS.<br />
It's subtle, not terribly effective because I wind up paying penalty fees, and they threaten me sometimes, but I like to think they get the underlying message, though.<br />
I might need to rethink my rebellious stance as I'm slowly going broke.<br />
I'll get back to you...
Revolutions are bloody things. Afterwards the founders of the revolution are the first to die, and then the counter revolutionaries. If we are reasonably free and comfortable it's best to fight with the pen.
Europe 1989 except Romania.
You're right. That was a revolution wasn't it?!
Very unlikely. I love my country. If it continues to lose the character elements that make it great, I will just leave.
So... if you were to misbehave you think your parents should get rid of you and get a different child?
How can you not love it? I know. You can be in school, taught by nihilists, never had much contact with any generation that had to struggle. You can have an air conditioned life, with plenty of food, a safe place to sleep, running water, and time for thinking about how hard it is to be misunderstood. Been a girl in Bangladesh lately? The Congo? Chad? Saudi Arabia? The people who want to destroy this unbelievable place have played you well, little girl. Or you are just pulling my leg to see what I would say.
Wetdog, my government was here to serve me, as it was here to serve you. This is a contract, not a blood relationship. When one side fails to honor its side of the deal, the other party is no longer required to honor the contract, either. The contract with my culture, the American Culture, is even less definite. All of my life, the ******** of my country have chipped away at the character that made it great. Once it is low enough, it will not rebloom. My United States will simply be another droopy, sad and angry, socialist state. I will not be here.
Politics is only part of it, but a growing part because that is where philosophical and religious questions are now contested. Both Republicans and Democrats are faces of the same deceitful god. Neither has my best interests at heart.
I answered your question. My whinging days are over. I am not going to even try to fix it. It has already been a waste of my time.
I do appreciate this question very much. It hit me so deeply when I realized I had an answer already prepared, just waiting to crystalize. I suppose I should finish: My country is already gone. I will be leaving if the social situation in the USA that has replaced it gets much worse.
Hey, an answer to your follow-up, "why give up?" I give up because there is a tipping point to all things balanced and once it is past, no one person is going to cause that momentum to utterly reverse. If the force is large enough, and it is, I could not even cause it to vector off slightly. Would I want to join groups, hold rallies and protests, sign petitions, etc, or would I want to live as freely and completely as I can, given choices available to me? Thirty years of hem-hawing about this are now over. Again, this has been an excellent question that has helped me very much.
