let us get is **** Straight!

Rebelion:
1. Open, organized, and armed resistance to one's gorverment or ruler.
2. Resistance to or defiance of any authority, control, or tradition.

Revolution:
1. an overthrow or repudiation and the thorough replacement of an established goverment or political system by the people governed.

except that all revolutions have been performed by a third party and used as a tool too strip a country of its heritage through centuries...

The american revolution was by the american people, with help from france, but it was by the american people. The overthrow of the Shah in Iran was by the iranians, not a third party. The French revolution was by the Bourgoise to overthrow the king, the libyan, syrian and egyptian revolutions are all their own doing. Saying that is just proving you are either a conspiracy theorist or  a dumb person. So maybe you're a ponce, and maybe you are just particularly jaded, but dont spew 						********					. K thx.

Even if almost everyone supported it and a revolution was justified (which it definitely would not be) the US is much too powerful for a revolution to succeed. the only places were revolutions can succeed in this day and age are smaller, third world countries. And often these can't succeed without help from powerful countries like the US. When the American Revolution happened, almost all weapons were on the same level. The firearms citizens had access to were almost as good as the ones that the government did. Because of all of the advanced weaponry all governments have access to, a revolution would even be almost impossible even in places like Canada or Australia, which have relatively small militaries. Imagine people trying to rebel against the US military, even without the weapons and artileries we would have no chance.

tldr: a revolution is not justified and not possible, and I'm getting sick of people bringing it up over and over again.

Heh....

Wrong. Wrong. Wrong... wrong....

1) Revolution in the U.S. is completely justifiable. Almost the entire bloated Federal Government is illegal, not to mention the spying, indefinite detention, groping, checkpoints, raids and arrests on journalists, assassinations for of U.S. citizens and foreigners, interventions in other countries' affairs by the CIA/NSA/military. The list is almost inexhaustible, and grows every day.

2) The people perpetrating the illegal acts above have only misdirection as their primary tool of defense. If the populace wakes up and that goes away, they will have a few hundred-thousand Jackboots from the DHS and other Federal agencies, and some True Believers from the military, but that's it. Anti-Federal sentiment in the Military is HUGE nowadays by many accounts. Add that to the BILLIONS of rounds of ammo and MILLIONS of pissed-off and already-awake American Civilians, and yeah... a violent overthrow would almost certainly end in a Constitutionalists' Victory.

You use the American Revolution like it was for the people, and not for the rich men who told everyone else England was bad. Don't get me wrong, the result of the revolution to me is a positive, but I am seriously doubting the initial reasoning of the rich elite of the colonies to support a rebellion. It's not like when we won they gave power to the people. We traded a monarchy for an aristocracy that slowly became a republic of some what representatives. It's not like we won and boom, freedoms for all! Although I do believe some of the founding fathers were sincere, or that the majority was in some way sincere. Idk.. just another opinion to throw into the discussion.

So then the revolutionary war is... when the government tells you that you know who the enemy is?

you know america had their own government during the revolution and claimed great britian was the enemy, so the picture does not really fit with that slogan

I'm not an expert on paintings, but I don't think that that is supposed to be there.
