Revolt!

It’s clear to most people that many things in America are broken. We have two primary parties (I’m not Green, BTW) that, while they espouse different philosophies, generally no longer side with the public good. We have state and federal programs (sometimes set up secretly) that were set up for the public benefit and yet seem to use their money to fund their friends and other powerful individuals and to line their own pockets. We have governments at every level running out of money and running on deficits despite paying sports coaches millions of dollars. The rich get richer and the poor get poorer, and the middle class in America is not improving.

Revolution. It worked here in 1776. It worked in France. It seems to be working in portions of the Middle East right now (and at least people there seem to care enough to try). I’d like to see a movie about this kind of revolution. I’d like to read a book where this revolution comes true. I’d like to see Anonymous participate. I’d like to see average Americans join the cause.

That’s all I have to say about that because ultimately revolutions are, to one degree or another, violent. And I’d hate for you to read my honest opinion.
