    How likely do you think the predictions found in the above linked article might turn out to be?

    If you agree with me, I believe that there is more than a small liklehood, do you think that seeking peaceful redress of grevances, as with expressing opposition to your elected things will suffice?

    Alan...

    Too late, I believe. I wonder if you could go back 30 years and tell people tell about the Patriot Act...never mind.:(

    Every one of them has ALREADY HAPPENED. That's the point.

    When will we start seeing the supposed process for peaceful redress of grievances for the farce that it is?

    In 2005, from New London, CT to Oakland, CA, people were shown that their property and their own bodies belong not to them, but to the government, by the Supreme Court.

    The system does work and can be used to change government; but people have to actually participate in it. Just voting once every four years will not guarantee your rights. You need to participate in local politics at both the community and party level.

    However tough you think it will be to change things from within the system, I can assure you it is a lot easier than "petitioning for redress of grievances". Likewise, if you have anywhere near the numbers and organization you need to successfully make such a petition, you would already be a political force of such significance that none would dare cross you.
