If a nation feels its leaders have abandoned them, is there a right course of action to take?
Is there any action that one can take?
If so, what is the citizen allowed to do?
I think the best answer is to continue to do the right thing and challenge those things that are wrong. Currently, our nation and its leaders are out of control when it comes to spending. We can do the right thing by making sure that our own financial affairs are in order and continue to speak out against the reckless fiscal policies of our government.
In a civilized, democratic republic, the next logical step would be to vote those leaders out on the next election cycle and replace them with some who do carry out the will of the people. This is the method we call the peaceful transition of power or bloodless revolution. Should the existing leaders refuse to vacate the office to which he or she is elected, then we have a different set of circumstances which requires a different set of actions. If the government is "wholesale" sold out to where it no long represents or confines itself to the democratic process prescribed for change, then a revolution by the people who make up that nation becomes the only way to restore the republic to its original state. Whether or not the people can be successful in such an approach has everything to do with how well they have guarded their rights to possess and bear arms for a government that will not step down may require some violent acts to remove and one may also encounter a resistant military in the process. It is a sobering thought and not one which many Americans could stomach at this juncture if it became necessary. WB
