45. "Upset" by Wikileaks? I am elated that undeniable evidence
has been exposed! Wikileaks has provided a backdrop for civil unrest.

Please avail yourself of the mountains of material available to learn about the loss of freedoms U.S. citizens have endured since 2001 plus the lies put forward for two wars, the loss of lives, the growing economic gap between the classes,loss of jobs to Nafta,, etc.,the destruction of labor unions, the failing education system,etc. THOSE are only some of the collective reasons people will end up on the streets. But, Wikileaks? "No".

Many, many have nothing more to lose by going to the streets and many more will go along because 1)of empathy for those who have lost so much and/or 2)of fear they, too, will lose all they've got. It will take longer in the U.S. due to the geological vastness and greater number of people. Unless the tide turns back in favor of 'average' Americans we will take to the streets. What I fear the most is not the people rebelling against the government but a civil war between the polarized factions.
