How bad does it have to get before you take to the streets???

Please give me an example. If Obama gives in to cuts to Soc. Sec. and Medicare in order to get rid of the tax cuts to the rich will you take to the streets?

3. In hindsight,

we took it to the streets in the 60s. The result was Nixon, and evetually Reagan. The majority in this country does not like social disorder and civil disobedience. We take it to the ballot box now. It's much better that way. No tear gas. I actually hope they take it to the streets though. Then they will learn the folly of that.

6. How true does it have to be before we start talking hypotheticals?

 

I have yet to see the first proposal.

Save the outrage until you know more.

11. Mahatma Gandhi

 

What difference does it make to the dead, the orphans and the homeless, whether the mad destruction is wrought under the name of totalitarianism or in the holy name of liberty or democracy?

12. I'm in crap physical shape so taking to the streets is beyond me

However, taking my ass out of this country is not.

They keep taking things away from labor, I'm outta here. There is really not enough left of me to survive a violent revolution at this point and things will get very violent if they insist on starving working people to keep the plutocrats fat.

I will have to work for justice from offshore.
