So You Want A Revolution

While looking through my Twitter feed I found a Tweet from @wiseguyeddie about, "15 Reasons Why We Need a Revolt in This Country." While I may be a bit of anarchist, I am not sure what we need is a revolution. However, this post has an interesting quote in it.
"The 1776 Declaration of Independence stated that when a long train of abuses by those in power evidence a design to reduce the rights of people to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, it is the peoples right, in fact their duty to engage in a revolution."
Based on the statement above we probably should be revolting. In fact, in many ways I think we are in a revolution and not just as atheists. There is not many segments of society that is not partially or completely disillusioned with government.

If you are not outraged, you are not paying attention. However, be careful what you wish for, sometimes the new boss is the same as the old boss.
