If A Revolution Broke Out Who Would Fight Who?

You hear all this banter about a revolution and the government getting out of control. Personally, I'm not sure most Americans even give a sheet to fight. In fact who would be fighting who? Does anyone even know? The welfare crowd is the new minority. If anything, I don't exactly see them fighting to protect policy makers or the system that feeds them. If anything, I see these folks robbing and looting and complicating things if fighting ever broke out on our soil. It just seems that with each passing day, Americans are losing spirit. Lawmakers are way out of control and America is spiraling down the toilet fast. I fear the new America where our freedoms become severely limited and there is no opportunity to get ahead but be the same as everyone!

It would be radical right-wing gun fanatics and disgruntled Republican losers against the US Army and National Guard. And it you think the US Military will not shoot US citizens go back to history class and learn about the Pullman Riots, Kent State, Shay's Rebellion, the Whiskey Rebellion, Wacco, and more incidents.They have and they will again.

Thanks for proving my point. There wouldn't be anyone fighting. The white middle class Republicans who have become the new minority will be boiled down to lower class citizens. The upper crust will have fled overseas. The existing multi demographic lower class Obama loving trash will think all is just fine. They'll rob and loot either way and will be the justification to the media that a revolution is underway. The fake revolution that never happened will be the start of martial law and the USA will once again become a colony of Europe or perhaps China.

Famine will strike. People will die and there will be no resistance other than some occassional noise. Earth will be peaceful again like it once was thousands of years ago.

Slaves will serve kings and the eradication of the masses will reduce the demand upon the Earth's natural resources.

The balance of power and money will be restored to it's original owners in the form of gold and precious metals.

You see people, fiat currency only exists if there is to be a middle class. Without it, it's simply not needed.

Much like the benghazi propaganda that was blamed on a video and sold to the media.

The trick here is to impoverish the middle class quickly and you'll have no major dissension.

A friend of mine just moved to Texas. He said they don't like New Yorkers that much already. Why don't you give that a shot. On another note, I think a revolution is a dumb idea at this point. If you look back in history we are quickly becoming like many if the faining empires of times passed. Who would have thought that you can't support a military across the globe? If times ever get that tough I will be the first to leave the US. Just like the rich did in Germany during the rise of Hitler. I am thinking south America if need be. Id have to do some work on my Spanish but it sure is beautiful there!

Newyorkers better hope their is never a revolution, this time the South would win. Up north who would fight the pampered corporate execs or the welfare scum who are too lazy to even go out and look for a damn job and can't function without having everything given to them. Yes there are people up here who are capable but they wouldn't fight to defend Cuomo or Obama. The rednecks would win while most of our population would be running around looting and robbing worrying about themselves

50% of the people are getting gov. Assistance.

30 % of the people work in public service

20 % are supporting 80 %

When the remaining 20% exit the private sector.... Look out!

I have to laugh at a well-intended face book post that talked about overthrowing the government. In the past I would have supported any legitimate reform movement to get rid of Obama. But, I have to question the noise makers. They are now America's new minority. It's clear that on Election Day, Americans wanted Obama and said good bye to the efforts of our forefathers. This is the new America. Home of socialism. Rather than fight, I'm just gonna leave the country. You people won! You can have it. When guys and gals like me leave and you have no one left to tax..you'll see!

If fighting broke out in an attempt to start a revolution, there would undoubtedly be supply chain interruption of things that we need to ensure our survival. At that point, the rebel forces would shift from their original objective and the focus would be on survival. So, I guess time would be well spent teaming up with our friends and neighbors, some of them Obama lovers and public servants and developing a group survival strategy.

Good luck with that, that is called "terrorism" as defined by the Patriot Act. You would be under surveillance if you managed to get any sort of steam in your attempts. I mean, what good is having 3 or four people with no usable land other than your yard etc. I think you are absolutely right, but with the government saying that veterans, right wing groups, anti-government (those aware of the need for self-sufficiency), and constitutionalists being monitored by DHS chances are you will create more problems for yourself than it is worth. There is a huge push in the political collectivist movement (whatever ism you are interested in) but if you attempt to be a collectivist on a small scale you are now a terrorist.
