When I realize that my children have nothing left to lose and that elections no longer matter.

My line was crossed long ago. I just don't have what it takes to inspire a few million people into fixing what ails us.

Of the items listed by the JPFO, each is a tyranny in its' own right which would lead me into open rebellion against the government; however, none is worse than brutality perpetrated by government against me and mine.

Brutality by government, i.e., actually physically inflicting harm against me and/or my family, is the one thing that would tip the scale, would cause me to take up arms and begin an insurrection. At that point I would have nothing to lose. I know also, I wouldn't last long; but, when I went down that I will have taken government agents with me, as many as I could kill before I was killed.

I said it would be a nation wide governmental effort to disarm the populous. I also said I expect it to start on the coasts and work inward towards the middle of the continent and long before it gets to Texas there will have been the 21st Century's equivalent of the Boston Massacre and I won't have to start anything.

All of the above and more.

My line in the sand is far behind me. When I meet someone who's not in a state of rebellion, I dismiss him as not having thought anything through.

I like the fact that it's an essay question, not multiple choice.
I got a fundraising letter/survey from the Republican National Committee, with the usual leading questions like "Do you want the government to continue to stand strong against terrorism?" meaning "Should we continue to erode your freedom and privacy in the name of the illusion of security?"
JPFO is much more open and honest than the people we're PAYING, for gosh sakes.

Anon 6:37AM, we're already there buddy. Wake up!

I've had my lined crossed so many times I'm just waiting.

I also guess that brutality by government to me and my family would set me off. Then I wouldn't care what happened after that.

For those who have had their lines crossed already, what are you doing about it?

I ask this not as criticism or mockery or anything of that sort, but out of sheer curiosity. IOW, what ideas can the rest of us use to take an ant bite out of the elephant?
