Rebellion in the US? Possible

Updated on April 10, 2011

In many places in the world, there are rebellions and uprisings occurring, and have occured over the history of mankind.  Is it possible to see these events here in America?

On April 19, 1775 the first shot of the American Revolution occurred.  A proud moment in American history as colonial rebels resisted teh lawful rule of the British Empire.  History shows these people as the founders of America, heroes each and every one.  Obviously history can paint people with whichever brush is at hand, but the fact remains they were rebelling. At the conclusion of the war, after the forming of the Constitution, the Decleration of Independence, and the Bill of Rights, America was born as a fledgling nation, and no longer an integrated colony under British rule. Visions of how great this nation could be danced through the founding fathers heads as they attempted to found this country on everything they wanted and didn't have.

Two hundred plus years later, there is still rebellions occurring around the world, as people want more then they have, want better lives, or just want a change.  Here in America, people talk about what they want, but do not act, even within the rights granted to them.  We face high taxes, a failing economy, multiple wars around the world, a beginning energy crisis, and the signs of more control from the government via acts such as the Patriot Act and through laws that allow wiretapping.  Micro chip monitoring is no longer a blurb in a science fiction movie, but an actual occurring event.  And Americans still do nothing.

Will there ever be an instance or an event that causes Americans to take to the street in mass protest? Will there ever be a collected demand for politicians to step down legally?  Will large corporations ever be held to task for their crimes against the environment and their blatant theft of the American people?

Time will tell if Americans will ever remember that this country was founded by the people, for the people, and we need to remind the politicians(in a peaceful manner) that this is our country, and we aren't going to take the special interest groups, the kickbacks, the fraud, the immorality, and the bankruptcy of America anymore.

      I am not particular about any word, whatever works and gets Americans to do more then complain works for me. I hope more and more awake and vote to affect change. Its just frustrating to see people vote based on one issue and ignore the rest at times.

      What may happen in US in coming days, in my view, can't be called a rebellion.Because, people of US are now so matured in politics and they silently bring change through ballets.This has happened to Nixon,and the just previous president also. Opposition party in US is also working responsibly, unlike Indian opposition parties who keep the bringing down of the ruling party as their only aim.So the change in US will take place in a desirable way, not by harsh measures.We can call it silent revolution,if you are very particular about using the word 'revolution'
