    If the country gets worse, which it sure seems headed that way, at what point would you be part of a revolution - and basically in violation of U.S. law?

    Depends if I had been deluded by a multi-decade oligarchist media conspiracy to believe anything and everything encompassed by the government represented sheer evil.

    Funny the ones who claim to know the Constitution so well and love it to the ends of the earth seem to be the ones itching to shitcan it.

    Is this a reaction to Alabama being chosen over Oklahoma State?

    To answer your implied question, the Occupy movement is constitutionally protected protest and is not a revolution.

    Well, they THOUGHT it was perfect. But then that ... you know ... got elected. They thought the constitution would protect them from that.

    Three Democratic presidents in a row. At least two of the three minorities or women.

    It's a high bar, I realize, but I think Revolution is a pretty big deal. I don't enter into it lightly.

    What if one was a minority woman? Would that count as two? Or would that just mean instant Revolution?
