In history, every empire or dictatorship has fallen at some point in time. Usually at it's own hand or doing. Have we learned from history or will history repeat itself?

Good answer. But, that's kind of my point. Would people recognize and revolt against a "potential" dictatorship or revolt after it was in place? Which would be first?
I hope this comment clarifies my Q a little better. Sorry.
Americans will not revolt until they go hungry because already have an executive branch with no checks & balances. Citizens can be KILLED on US soil, it's 'legal', nobody is revolting. /legal-for-us-govt-to-execute-citizens.html :(
You have a very good point, I think that those with real power have realized that they can't be overthrown if no one knows who they are. Most of who we see are probably puppets
Congress is usually on vacation during that time of the year and some reference to any new law has to be in the federal register, which many, many people read daily.
Obama very well could be a dictator after the next election. He has already signed off on powers that almost eliminates the Bill of Rights and he doesn't listen to the Constitution. He invades countries on his own without congressional consent.
