It's hard to stop for sure-- but all we can do is spread the word as best we can.

We can't. The usual processes like voting didn't work with spineless and whoring democrats refusing to stop it. Revolution won't do at this point. The only way right now is non compliance in the ranks, and waking up the somnambulists.

Uniting together, peaceful non-compliance, pooling together of resources, creating small pods of communities that are, in every sense of the word, truly self-sustaining--which means everyone, rich or poor has their basic needs met--met because people work together to make it so.

Revolution is possible, but the chances are high that it would not only result in huge sacrifices, but would simply fail because the police have too much fire-power, and we know that they would continue to be dupes for the corporate ruling-class fascists (and they are also sadists that thoroughly enjoy killing, when given the green-light to do so).

This is also the most probable reason why the Bush repugs decided to waste the NG forces in Iraq.

I've thought that too - the scum made policy to gut and destroy the military in all it's forms to make sure a trained force wouldn't be able to oppose their takeover. After all they've got oodles of taxpayer dough to pay the private mercs.
