The ONE thing you're correct on is we are not (yet) fighting a revolution. After a few more decades of political posturing, THEN you'll have no other choice.
Since it'll take firepower to undo what you and generations of your kind have done, this subject has PLENTY bearing on this discussion.
Two, I am right. Even then, there were plenty of your kind around. Too afraid to stand up against the king of England, rather be subjects to the Crown.
Most historians have pegged the % of the population of that day who actually fought in the revolution well under 10%. Today is no different.
Go read history, it's about to slap you in the face.
