    Had a thought what are the common actions in history by government that proceed a civil uprising. Thoughts ?

    Rampant civil disobedience, governmental disconnect from the wishes of the people, martial law, abuses of power by government in violation of the Law of the Land. Government control of media. Unusually high percentages of population incarcerated. (USA is at the top of the list world wide on that one.)

    Race issues and thuggish behavior by the government. Though with race you could also say factions be being subjected to unequal rights.

    Division of citizens into factions by race, religion, political preferences or any other way that makes for cliques with antipathy toward any other clique.

    The taking from those that have... and then giving to those that have not earned it.

    Laws so vague as to make anyone a violator, without common sense, and lacking the normal legislative process for enactment. or, Laws and regulations so complex that they are hardly understood by even the folks expected to enforce them. Federal militarization of local police forces. An oversized inefficient bloated wasteful government in willful violation of the Constitution, otherwise known as the Law of the land. Lack of routine Constitutional Oversight and review of every new enacted law by the Highest Court in the Land. Why in the world should a lawful person be required to violate a law to have standing in challenging it's Constitutional status. Law makers in Congress are too ignorant, or stupid, or willfully ignore the Constitution when writing laws.

    Unless Facebook goes dark, nobody will notice.
    Unless the EBT stops and the FSA storms the mall nobody will care.
    Unless a populist charismatic leader appears and urges dynamic change, nothing will happen.

    A few examples might be what we are going through right now with barry writing his own laws by executive orders.

    I liked all of the above comments. Our situation today with all of our issues have been done over and over in history. Our best hope is that we are like Switzerland, armed to the teeth. TPTB know this and have been trying in "inch" forward to their goal of a (yuk) NWO. I believe my Bible in there will be a NWO but I hope to heck and back that we make it as painful as possible for the traitors. OTOH nothing we do will compare to their final judgement.
