Sorry Don. Who would rise up off of what to follow whom? I don't have that much faith in the American people take to an armed revolution, maybe a violent protest.
I don't think that the American people could get themselves together enough to cause & form nation wide strikes or boycotts at this point.
We're far less courageous than most of the citizens of the Third World Nations that pull this off all the time. Had the past 2 elections happened in a 3rd world country the reaction would've taken to the streets in a matter of hrs, not days or weeks. Don't fool yourself about into thinking that anyone fears "waking the sleeping giant". That gaint died in it's sleep after the 60's went away.
I was there in the 60's, I remember! I paid a high price, I've always fought hard(in my youth). We're in no way even close to a visual of that today. I think we may be in some ways in a worst place with the government now but with the people we don't have the massive awareness nor do we have the balls.
