POLL: 25% of All Americans Open to "Taking-up arms against government"

More than one quarter of US residents feel so estranged from their government that they feel it might “soon be necessary to take up arms” against it, a poll released on Thursday claimed.

So the tyrannical gov’t in the Netherlands decides against the farmers concerning carbon emissions, global footprint, yada yada. Farmers in rigs protest at the home of a Dutch PM and get arrested.

More farmers in bigger rigs descend on the police station, blocking the officers from their activities. Result ?? The arrested farmers are released.

Will we see US citizens banding together in solidarity for injustices? Who knows. The trucker strike fizzled but, big picture, there were many issues in play at the time. Maybe that is not a reasonable example.

Remember Obama's quote:

"We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we've set. We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded."

Now recall all the billions of rounds of ammo and other weaponry purchased by several different federal agencies that continues to this day: DHS, US Post Office, Dept of Agriculture...etc.." Not to mention the thousands of UN troops stationed in the US.

The 25% don't stand a chance without God's intervention!

In the American Civil war , that number was less than 5%. Just shooti N from memory , anyone can correct as needed. Also Jan6 fiasco would still be an ongoing battle ,if it had been part of a REAL Patriot uprising.

That is a higher percentage for the good guys than prior to 1776?
# RE: MORE THAN BEFORE?mjc 2022-07-02 02:15
Quoting rageise:
That is a higher percentage for the good guys than prior to 1776?

Correct. About 9% (~250k of a 2750k population) of the population served in the militia or the Continental Army (3% in the Continental Army)

"What percentage of Americans fought the Revolution?....

Three percent would be 75,000. Even a cursory look at wikipedia's entry on the Revolutionary War, mentions that over 250,000 men fought as regulars or militiamen at some point during the conflict, although the standing size of the Continental Army never exceeded 90,000.

Regarding this, what percent of the population participated in the American Revolution?

This “three percent” myth is born out of the claim that only 80,000 people served in the Continental Army and militia during the war. With the 1780 population estimated at 2,780,369, that gives us 2.96 percent of the country serving in George Washington's Army.

Additionally, what percent of colonists fought the British? The current thought is that about 20 percent of the colonists were Loyalists — those whose remained loyal to England and King George. Another small group in terms of percentage were the dedicated patriots, for whom there was no alternative but independence.

Also know, how many American soldiers were in the Revolutionary War?

Over 230,000 soldiers served in the Continental Army during the American Revolution, although no more than 48,000 at any one time.

No kidding !! There going to be coming out of the woodwork on this one. BLM & ANTIFA alike.
(Sources say some of the last shots were fired while Walker’s body was on the pavement. Walker was on the ground dead when medical help arrived. Autopsy records show he was handcuffed after the shooting. He was not armed at the time he was shot, sources said.
A gun, however, was recovered inside Walker’s car, the same sources confirmed.)
Eight officers unleashed a hail of gunfire. They shot this unarmed man "60" times and then handcuffed him after he was shot.
WOW talk about bravery.

Thirty or more years ago, you never heard of anything like this with some exceptions such as the ambush of Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow in the 1930s - and they were armed. No doubt he did something to bring himself to police attention but if I was a black person I would be infuriated by this - I would protest loudly but peacefully in front of government buildings. While I support the police in general, it appears to me that some of them have become trigger happy. You should be able to drop someone with one well placed shot. If not, the firearm you have and/or the training you have received is inadequate. They fired 90 rounds but hit him "only" 60 times. What does this mean otherwise to an average citizen with a CWP who carries outside the home? Lawyers have said one or two shots is more defensible in a court of law than a dozen. It would also pay to have CWP insurance of some sort for outside carry - you likely would not need it in a case of defending your home against an aggressive burglar, but remember the District Attorney anywhere is PAID to put you in jail!

No chance in hell can we win against foreign enemies.

Perhaps we could win against DC but that is precisely when China and Russia would likely invade and crush us.

If the Chinese and Russians invade, American will again be a place with two genders and only two. 2 + 2 will again equal four. CONUS will be filled with young people who have math and science skills AND have their genitals intact. Sad to imagine the nation has to burn to the ground for sanity, manhood, and skill to reign.

Americans of this day and age, including the tough guy patriot militia types, talk a good game but despite all the crap you see dumping on us, no one is grabbing their AR-15’s and piling in their pickup trucks to go do battle.
Why? Cuz they’d rather read and dream about SHTF then actually do the dirty work of reclaiming the government.

And ya know what? I’m good with it cuz my Bible tells me that very soon, God is going to remove His Holy Spirit and the church off this planet and then He is going to commence curbstomping this world in a way it’s never seen before.

Get right with God. 1st Corinthians 15:1-4 is the gospel. Read it. Believe it. Let the Holy Spirit change you from the inside out. Might be only small changes, might be one big BOOM, I don’t know.
Bottom line, if you’re left behind I am convinced if you are in the Western Hemisphere, you’re going to die very soon after we’re gone.
The judgements in Revelation speak of 1/3 of the earth being burned up. Look at a global map; north and South America and out to around Hawaiian waters is about 1/3 of the earth.
This tells me why America isn’t mentioned in prophecy and Revelation; because we are going to be a giant piece of BURNT TOAST!

Get right with God; mentally say goodbye to all your stuff and focus UP. We not going to be here much longer.

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--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. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security."

It's soul purpose was not intended for hunting and sport shooting, but when in reality its purpose was to protect the ability of the people to contest an overreaching increasingly authoritarian central government.

Not Masons who have organized the original American Revolution! Not the pukes at the pulpits in protestant Churches or even the Catholic ones, which are now basically indistinguishable from heretical churches next door (only Kevin the Dodo does not know this, because he does not go to any church). It takes some work to translate vague anti-government feelings into concrete action. My fellow Americans have grown too fat and lazy to get off their derrières and organize themselves into anything resembling Revolutionary War militias. I keep reading fictional books by various authors claiming the existence of patriot-billionaires who look after the real interests of the US, but unfortunately it is all a fiction!

Globalist rats running the US will burn it down before they will let it be free again. If the American people ever did throw off the government, the rats would flee to another globalist run country and nuke us. Remember, they are not nationalists who love any country. Globalist rats hate national sovereignty as it stands in the way of centralized globalist control. So any country (like Russia) who wishes to remain a country free and culturally in tact is a target for destruction. Good luck to us all.

+13 # We tossed 2nd 2022-07-01 10:49
The problem is that we threw the 2nd amendment under the bus. We supported a standing army rather than the militia.

We allowed ourselves to be disarmed by the 1968 Gun Control Act and order following "police". Very few citizens have any, much less adequate tactical and strategic knowledge and training, much less the right gear for war.

Perhaps most importantly by not following the 2nd amendment we did not prepare logistically for war. Any general knows that it is logistics not tactics that wins or loses wars.

We are fuked, and people are still not awake enough to see that, or to start to correct this fatal error.
+3 # Something to fight over - the Fed is GIVING away $242 million to bankers 2022-07-01 10:46
This is more QE and hyperinflation by the back door.
Case in point: the Fed's reverse repo facility. While one can debate for hours why there is a record $2.330 trillion in cash parked at the Fed's overnight facility and what it means for systemic plumbing problems, the fact is that there is a record $2.33 trillion in cash parked at the Fed's overnight facility, doing nothing.
Well not nothing: it was nothing when rates were zero, but at 1.55% which is the current reverse repo rate, that $2.33 trillion is a golden goose for the 108 counterparties that are parking cash at the facility, a mixture of money market funds, banks, GSEs and various other financial intermediaries.
How big is this particular Golden Goose? The chart below shows the payment in interest that the Fed makes day on this record $2.33 trillion in funds: as of today it amounts to just over $100 million every single day! That's right, more than $100 million in interest payments on funds parked with the Fed, which is by definition the world's only risk-free counterparty!
But wait, there's more!
Remember excess reserves? Well, technically excess reserves ended in March 2020 when the Fed reduced reserve requirement ratios to zero, thus converting the trillions in reserves held at the Fed from "excess reserves: to plain old "reserves" and which as of today amount to $3.13 trillion.
Combining the two we get nearly a quarter billion, or to be precise $242 million and rising, in interest payments by the Fed - this is money which is printed into existence - every single day.

History shows us that only 13% of the colonists actively participated in the war for independence. Many more were in agreement but they did not actively become involved.

I personally believe it will take more than that this time around to restore our independence but I try to not be discouraged as I look around and see so many not involved, not caring, not believing we are, again, at that crossroad.
+5 # Really? 2022-07-01 11:00
Not a good analogy IMHO:
We are light years from being as able to defend ourselves as they were in 1776.

1.) In April of 1775 they were as well armed or better than the enemy. --- We are literally disarmed by the 1968 Gun Control Act (and other illegitimate laws)

2.) These men were in very good physical shape. Most Amerikans are a joke psychically.

3.) China could field an army as large as our entire population. Lose all of it in casualties... and still be able to raise another army larger than what we have.

4.) We don't produce a damn thing in this country. Is China going to supply us with the things we need to wage war?

5.) We have no weapons for our standing army. They were left or used up in foreign countries.

6.) We no longer even have a standing army. What is left is going to be purposely killed off in the Ukraine.

Too depressing to even keep going. No chance in hell can we win against foreign enemies.

Perhaps we could win against DC but that is precisely when China and Russia would likely invade and crush us.
