The US government has proven itself as bad at fighting the Drug dealer/terrorist bunch in Afghanistan and the possibility of defection by US military personnel is high

It would require a mixture of :

A) General public fervor about a revolution (at least a 40% appeal to it, which should quickly snowball in event of a Revolution )
B) Great deal of Professional Military defection
C) Terrible political infighting
D) At least 2:1 rate of Unarmed Civilians to Armed Civilians, to ensure a proper militia/guerilla fighting force.
E) Good intelligence sources on Federal Activity.
F) Very powerful rallying points ( Texas' "Remember the Alamo" , America's "Remember Pearl harbor!", or "Workers of the world, unite!" ).

Statements :

We never necessarily had a "revolution". I'd consider it a Revolutionary War. It wasn't by any means truly a revolution, it was merely a war for independence.

Any armed uprising would face serious initial roadblocks. A peaceful overturning of the current government would be easier and less costly in the end.

We should act with moral standards at all times and avoid genocide wherever possible.

Last line coming from Genghis Khan tsh.
And a peaceful revolution would be better than a violent one by all means, it's better to live for revolution than to die for it.

oh god, that obama picture is the funniest thing I've seen today, is it real?
if it is, i am much impressed with his sense of humor.

on the topic....not happening, ever, the democrats and republicans don't hate each other nearly enough for an actual war at the moment, and a large scale military defection is required for it to not get crushed in two months.
