    Obama and his umpa lumpas

    Am I paranoid in thinking obama is trying to disarm america? A friend of mine who is a history teacher said that throughout history when a government tries to over power the people and tax them to hell and back... Like obama is doing, then at some point the people revolt against the government and start a revolution. She said its happened in other countries and believes its only a matter of time before we are next? Do you agree or disagree and why?

    "All the armies of Europe, Asia and Africa combined, with all the treasure of the earth (our own excepted) in their military chest; with a Buonaparte for a commander, could not by force, take a drink from the Ohio, or make a track on the Blue Ridge, in a trial of a thousand years.


    "At what point then is the approach of danger to be expected? I answer, if it ever reach us, it must spring up amongst us. It cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide."


    (from "The Perpetuation of Our Political Institutions: Address Before the Young Men's Lyceum of Springfield, Illinois" January 27, 1838)

    Do I agree that the Federal gov't will overtax and there will be revolution? No, I don't think that.

    The half of the country living off the other half sure isn't going to revolt until the freebies run out. They aren't the ones I would want on my side anyways. They are the problem, not the solution.

    I think "instability" is in the back of the minds of many people. In my lifetime of 60 years, I don't ever recall being this concerned.

    I can't answer whether this is by "design" or not, but there are plenty of red flags waving.

    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    Well let's see, the last time we had a revolution, not a civi l war, it was fueled by high taxes, oh and there was that thing about rounding up all the guns, shot, and powder in Lexington and Concord.

    I was stationed in some shaky countries while in the military and was a contractor in many of those countries that in recent years the governments have been overthrown by socialist or extremist. Yes, the peoples of these countries set back and allowed their governments to strip them of their rights, freedom, using the almost exact agenda as our present administration is using. What is the average American presently doing to prevent this from happening, very little. Can or will it happen to us? Yes in the very near future and most likely without a shot being fired.

    Both parties have financial & political incentive to maintain partisan divisions. They hire highly trained professionals to help them do it. It might not be completely by design, the Robber's Cave experiment (highly recommended reading) shows that we're dummies when tempted to become partisan, but there're certainly people trying to do this by design.

    I don't think a revolution is going to happen. I do believe inspite of the current trend the Constitution will prevail. If you have no faith that your Constitution works then you must believe President Nixon left the White House because the cooking was bad.

    How bad the backlash is from this current trend only time will tell. I think another four after Obama will still be Democrat. Then the economy and lack of jobs for those willing to work will bring a swing back to the right and then settle in the middle.

    Currently there are a lot of workers on the Government Tit that are receiving lay off notices. There will be base closures and a reduction in Military force leaving us vulnerable and the American people don't accept that well.

    I have said before I signed and took an oath Both Foreign and Domestic. I have fought on the ground in a war and I do not think I could look down my sights and see another American and pull the trigger I guess I am off to a camp in my old age if it takes me taking up arms against my own country.

    You say you want a revolution . . . Well, you know . . . . We all want to change the world

    You say you'll change the constitution . . . Well, you know . . . . We all want to change your head

    You say you've got a real solution . . . Well, you know . . . . We'd all love to see the plan

    Please stick to the gist of the OP. Obama/Disarm America/Resulting in Revolt?

    Please do not stray away form that.
