If enough people have the courage to just say "no" to the state it will instantly lose its power.

What happens when people without guns stand up to people with guns.... There will be no further Gandhiesque peaceful transitions the plutocrats won't yield power without bloodshed

True. But the problem is, how to organize such mass civil disobedience when the state is monitoring all electronic communications, and physical mail. Ideas?

How they always have, take to the streets. We're all pissed off, people just don't want to to it alone.

There's not enough in this country. People are too comfortable.

No - people ARE comfortable and HAPPY and they don't want that kind of change - don't make it sound like people are somehow in an trace

@Shelly, Maybe you are. I want our country to get back to its founding ideals.

It doesn't really matter whether I am personally happy or whether you are personally happy - it's whether collectively the American people are unhappy enough to revolt - I don't believe they are anywhere near

The 'collective' is made up of individuals. If I'm not happy, then the seed of change has already been planted.

Haha people are in a trance that's exactly how I describe. Pick a job, go to work, surrender half to the State, pay your bills, go up mcdonalds, get your voting agenda from the news, and watch some American idol. That's the USA today.

Here, the states would seize power. What happened in Egypt could not happen so quickly here. The Feds would butt in.

You won't even discount the cowards, the Dems, the pacifists and the negative ninnies that won't believe in anything.

Remember, the world is watching and DC must maintain an image. That image is not genocide in the face of dissent, they drop bombs on other nations for the same thing and arm the resistors. Will we get our weapons?

I'd give it a solid 10,000,000. I think there are at least that many folks who see the problem with an all-powerful, overreaching Federal government.

I doubt it immediately, the state doesn't like giving up its power

The key word is "enough"

Look at Egypt

Nope. It has to be certain numbers, with a certain degree of coordination, and including some key people.
