We've all seen the news about the revolution in Kyrgyzstan and the bloody protests which ousted the government and forced President Kurmanbek Bakiyev to flee the capital. And we've all seen predictions by some that the US is on a glide path to something along those lines. It got me to wondering: "What would actually trigger a massive outpouring of violent protests in the streets of the US?" I just don't foresee anything in the future that would do so, as the US rapidly transitions from a largely capitalist republic to a socialist government or possibly a communist dictatorship. On the other hand, if the Federal government tried to take back all of the socialist programs, I think the million man march on Washington and the Watts riots would look like a walk in the park. What I am saying is this: "Working, tax paying middle class citizens will be pushed farther and farther until they have no ability to resist; and by the time a few would do so, it will be too late. On the other hand, those who feed at the Federal trough will pull together in a massive public demonstration in a heartbeat." And never doubt that public demonstrations work. If you doubt it, you missed the 1960's civil rights demonstrations and anti-war demonstrations. Massive street demonstrations strike fear in the hearts of politicians. And that is why the Tea Party is such a threat to the liberals.
