What a violent U.S. revolution would look like today compared to 1776

taking down the government

The opposition would face labels from the media such as “extremists”, “infiltrators”, “foreign government agents”, “terrorists” . The media would show video after video of every innocent death caused by the opposition. Even innocent deaths caused by the government, would have the media blame it on the opposition. Zooming in on the faces of crying mothers as they hold their dead children. Cursing the names of opposition leaders who killed their children.  Winning over the public that you’re the problem, not the government. The opposition would have no moral ground to stand on, because they turned to violence first, or that’s at least how the media would paint the picture.

While the government would be winning the propaganda war, they’d be crushing the opposition militarily. Almost laughable at how outmatched the opposition would be. This isn’t 1776. You can’t hide in bushes and pick off redcoats who have easily marked themselves. You’d be facing well trained, brainwashed soldiers that are not only convinced you’re a terrorist, but are rightfully convinced that you’re outgunned. They’d be using the best weapons technology has to offer, while the opposition would be using whatever was still available to the public from local gun shops. Tanks vs nothing, because shipments of fuel have ceased in your area. The government will control all resources. Food, Fuel, and communications all in the hands of the government.

Now this is all assuming that there’s someone out there that actually has the cohonas & brains to get the ball rolling on a violent revolution. The closest thing I’ve seen to someone leading that cause, packed his bags and moved to L.A.. I don’t blame him. He knows we can’t win this revolution through force. The only way we’re winning this revolution is through peaceful means. Possible strategies are doing what other countries did, which would be public but peaceful protests. Another strategy might be infiltration. Winning elections at both local and national levels. As unrealistic as those strategies might seem to some, just remember the picture I painted for you above. Not much of a choice.

    Guns are still the teeth of liberty. Otherwise the current anti 2nd Amendment government wouldn’t be tying so hard to restrict and identify those who are gun advocates.

    If we are out gunned we will fight anyway. We will be joined by military patriots. Guns let others know we mean business. The Bundy ranch people set a great example for all of us.

    Just fyi

    many of the police and soldiers that are government forces tend to join revolutions……. I mean… look at most every revolution in history….. armies join their own people rather than kill them.

    When the enemy look exactly like the neutrals and the neutrals look exactly like the friendlies you cant protect your high tech weapons, your bases……. they will be infiltrated often by neutrals or by your own “friendlies” that are turn coats.

    You can’t nuke or WMD your own soil either.

    This isnt a few citziens with guns VS the military, it is federal soldiers and these citizens likely supported by state military forces VS loyal federal forces.

    civil war isn’t pretty, and isn’t as simple as you think.

    As far as the media goes……. the very people watching that crap on TV will have family members killed by the federal forces, “collateral damage” or otherwise….. those media stations and hostile journalists would be very fair game in any civil war, or war of any type for that matter.

    Media stations are always one of the first things targeted by modern armies, they’d likely also be targeted by civilians.

    Further.

    You need power to watch TV. How is that power distributed? Power lines. Again, this could be railroad tracks, oil refineries, power plants……… you can’t tell who the enemy is so you cant hellfire missle them. You can’t protect everything on your own soil from yourself.

    I’m sorry… You make some good points in this article but you are wrong overall. Ruthlessness is with what the revolution will be fought. Propaganda is a tool of war, therefore those who spread it should be considered weapons of the enemy and handled accordingly. I could go on and on on how wrong you are, on how undeveloped and lacking of faith in humanity the points in your article are, but I will simply point you to a work of fiction (one that just begins to touche on the realities of a modern revolution in a realistic light). You, Sir, need to reed Unintended Consiqueces by John Ross.

    If we cannot win a revolution…

    then why do they want the guns?

    I think it is laughably naïve to think that the corrupt establishment will simply surrender their power and access to wealth and just walk away without resorting to violence.

    Also, despite 5000 tanks, 8500 helicopters, total air superiority, and an overwhelming technological advantage, the U.S. military can barely “control” a tiny sliver of Afghanistan– a country the size of Texas.

    Revolutions are just confidence games. Once the people believe they can win and have little left to lose, the feeding frenzy will be unleashed. The media are just front runners. When they see a revolution turning, they will jump on the winning side.

    If you want to see what a contemporary U.S. revolution might look like, I’d suggest a book called: “Indivisible: With Justice For Some”.

    We have to organize by including the military generals and members who are on our side. Some of them have been unhappy with the government for a long time now. We have to get them, the smart ones, on board with us!
