Yeah, well ... good luck with that one! 

 

I think the best chance for that would have been the Occupy Wall Street movement - had it been started/created by people who knew what they were doing!!    But with three young, White, Canadian college students as the mastermind .... the prospects for success, unfortunately, never had a chance.

 

Too many of the voting-age American population are just not intelligent enough (at least politically speaking ... but, really, when Kim Kardasian wearing a tight dress over her 'baby bump' is the most important news story in the country/world and tops the three biggest news sources as "information" .... we are in big ass trouble!!  ).

 

"Common sense" is missing from the minds of too many of our fellow citizens ... and especially so with many of our kids ... that they simply don't think of things like "cause and effect" or "classism" or "fair distribution of wealth."

 

If any of those people were just stopped for one minute to really think about the level of corruption/lobbying/bribery that goes on in Washington to our politicians ... if we could get them to care ... then I don't think starting a "revolution" against it would be all that hard to do!
