Not which Group(s) MEMBERS talk the best game; but which ones you believe would be willing to actually WALK the TALK.

    COMMUNISTS: Actual Marxist/Leninists.
    GREENIES: Ultra-Environmentalists
    SOCIALISTS: Mainstream Socialists
    ANARCHISTS: The Actual Anti-Society/Government Folks
    MODERATES: People Sitting on the Fence
    LIBERTARIANS: The Pro-Freedom & Liberty Crowd
    CONSERVATIVES: Mainstream Conservatives
    SOCIAL CONSERVATIVES: The Right-Wingers
    AUTHORITARIANS: The ULTRA-Conservatives

    Please Select UP TO THREE OPTIONS.
    Anybody who is defined by one-issue, whether it be the protection if Israel, the elimination of Judaism, banning abortion, or saving the whales. People who will kill for a cause generally don't pay attention to anything other than that cause.

    Of the groups listed, I would say communists and anarchists, because they are the farthest from the status quo and from having a majority, so to implement their vision would likely require violence.

    Social conservatives. If anything it's got worse since 1969...

    I said nothing about surrender. We have to face the fact that our government and political machines have, can, and will be just as ruthless in so many ways as countries we claim to be virtually evil. If we believe that the American government has not engaged in propaganda and created the delusions, illusions, and blatant distortions about us having the GREATEST GOVERNMENT on EARTH...then we're screwed.

    The values and moral compass of our government has gone down the tubes. The failure to come clean with their allegiance to special interests over the public at large...tells us that We The People have lost control over the underlying intent of how government should be as stated in Declaration of Independence, which is:

    That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
    We must realize that the Declaration isn't a lawful document in which its tenets were incorporated into the Constitution. But what it does remind us is that WE THE GOVERNED are Constitutionally the power over THE GOVERNORS.

    It's time that we RETHINK our shortcomings that have lost the American people's right to Govern the Governors.

    But the chances of taking on the tasks of bringing back government down to the level of being public servants is not likely because the Governors have divided Americans citizens into three separate factions that refuse to look at who our real nemesis is. Our political machines and standing government.

    I picked the groups at the extreme ends of the spectrum - communists, authoritarians and anarchists. Moderates are almost by definition least likely to die for their views...

    That's right, you did not. I was agreeing with you that the US is just like nK, the USSR and China; therefore, I propose that we surrender.
