It'll take a lot more than 3%.

I've thought for a long time what it would take for a real revolution to happen. The way I figure, you'd need at least 33% in favor and willing to fight. That way you could have 33% against, and 33% who are sitting on the fence.

I'm not sure where you got that idea that I want to vote. I don't want to be a part of this game at all. I'm happy to sit on the sidelines and wait for things to get bad enough for average Americans to realize the obvious. There's no way in hell I'm going to stick my neck out now when Americans are still under the delusion that peaceful protests, voting, and signing petitions will do a damn bit of good.

Looks like he's so anti-business that he's conspiring to give corporations new powers in secret.

I voted for Obama and believed the change he was advocating would work but now...not so much.  I have changed my mind.  The ideas Obama has are so idealistic and if we were a Country of plenty, his proposals might better us.  But we are not this Country and to get back where we need to be is to practice Capitalism.  It  works...look at the Chinese.  And government; your ONLY job is to govern those who can't govern themselves.  Anything else you stick your business into proves disaster.  Big government is a luxury we can't afford.  

I wish Obama's plan worked but he is unqualified. I know that now.

The alternative will do no better , possibly worse , for the average American's economy .
   Success  is up to the individual , not the President .

how dare them give us these choices! and how dare us, for accepting this BULLSHIT..


Given the choices we have between equal levels of evil, the only viable choice I see we have, is to have MASS protests on election day, and protest our choices

the protest is not voting at all... then what will they do?

I don't think so. The majority wins, but the only ones that count are the ones that vote. Even if you got it down to only 2% of the people voting, it still would be good enough for them.

Forget about changing things. America has become reform-proof. They designed it that way. Elections and protests are just a dog and pony show to make people believe that if they try hard enough things can change for the better. They won't.

You want to change things, get yourself a torch and pitchfork. Me, I'll just wait by the sidelines until the rest of the country realizes the obvious.

they say only 3% is needed for change, and we need look no further than the revolutionary war.. where ONLY 3% fought, or wanted it

I know you love being a slave, and couldnt fathom change, after all it would fuck up the welfare you get


The media could not ignore the people if enough of us did it... Why do you even want to vote? NOTHING EVER CHANGES..

You still want to play this game??


The problem here is YOU, willy

vote for romney and the thoughts and talk about revoultion will fade gently away.

What's your plan for when and if, peace follows?

Let's worry about what follows when protesters learn to stop being cowards.

Since I'm a man of peace. This is a hypothetical, so you got some RPGs what is your target?

Remember if you are of legal draft age & Male you are a solider.

he owns guns, what's keeping him from shooting up some capitalist pigs?

cowardice.

pot does that to you.

...I don't think average citizens will have any RPGs. Soldiers may have them, and they will have the choice of firing on the American People or firing on the 1%. Ultimately, the choice is theirs.

you do not know that for a fact. Obama has a 4 year track record now, so why can he not run on it?

When I have the preson who failed verses the one who has not had a chance yet, easy choice for me.
I think most of the voters will feel that way as well.
