    No, I don't think there will be mass uprising by the people for another half a century or more. I do believe that there may be blood on the senate floor eventually and that there may be a series of assasination attempts on various members of congress and the PotUS. There are some real whackjobs out there and they never cease to surprise you with their craziness.

    Would this be the elected whackjobs or the ones among the general population?

    IMO, the best rebellion would be an economic one, or a serious tax protest iow. DC thrives on money and it is where politicians manipulate the masses. Severely cutting off the flow of money would be far more effective than anything that I can think of.

    That would be a rebellion I could get behind.

    I think the government would just borrow and print more money.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    No, everyone is too pussified to do something like that.


    Most citizens won't even arm themselves to defend their own homes.... buncha pussies.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    They probably would, but this has consequences of its own on the economy. They are already on shaky ground with the current level of debt we are carrying.

    And how many new licenses, taxes, and fees have been added since 1932?

    I think you need to look a bit farther than just the Fed tax rate.

    No.
    There is a good chance of some societal/governmental/economic collapse by then, however.
