    It is. It's certainly not easy and probably much much tougher now than back in the days of the Revolution. But if you get enough people behind the cause, you can do it. Additionally, if there was an actual rebellion, you'd at the least split the military. While some may be faithful to the government, many others wouldn't raise arms against their brethren and family.
