Surprising Link on the Brainwashed Neocon DrudgeReport: 29% Registered Voters Believe Armed Revolution Might Be Necessary

Twenty-nine percent of registered voters think that an armed revolution might be necessary in the next few years in order to protect liberties, according to a Public Mind poll by Fairleigh Dickinson University.

The poll, which surveyed 863 registered voters and had a margin of error of +/-3.4, focused on both gun control and the possibility of a need for an armed revolution in the United States to protect liberty.

The survey asked whether respondents agreed, disagreed, neither agreed nor disagreed or did not know or refused to respond to the statement: "In the next few years, an armed revolution might be necessary in order to protect our liberties"

Twenty-nine percent said they agreed, 47 percent said they disagreed, 18 percent said they neither agreed nor disagreed, 5 percent said they were unsure, and 1 percent refused to respond.

Results of the poll show that those who believe a revolution might be necessary differ greatly along party lines:
• 18 percent of Democrats
• 27 percent of Independents
• 44 percent of Republicans

The poll found that 38 percent of Americans who believe a revolution might be necessary support additional gun control legislation compared to 62 percent of those who don't think an armed revolt will be needed.

Dan Cassino, a professor of political science at Fairleigh Dickinson and analyst for the poll, says:

"The differences in views of gun legislation are really a function of differences in what people believe guns are for. If you truly believe an armed revolution is possible in the near future, you need weapons and you're going to be wary about government efforts to take them away."

The poll was conducted nationally between April 22 and April 28, 2013.

While I would be in the "yes" column myself, I have a

hunch that if we did not have a black president, the percentage of people saying "yes" to the potential necessity of armed revolution would be considerably lower.

The proportion therefore may not be an entirely accurate representation of people's willingness to go "all the way" in their desire to protect / reacquire civil liberties as a pure quest of sorts; I think it is inflated a bit by racism and associated fears, unfortunately.

Just a hunch.

(I base this on the reactions of my white conservative friends and family, who finally only seem to feel really threatened by their federal government now that a black man presides. I suppose, in a way, this may be good? I mean, if this is what it took to wake up people into real skepticism of the criminal government regime??? Seems like a bummer, in a way though.... It still pisses 'em all off when I call Obama "Bush III". LOL!)

What would the Founders do?

Polling the sheeple.

Many believe violence coming.

Send more money to government to protect you.

Not surprising that they are trying to scare people.

Free includes debt-free!

Say hi to the beginnings of

Say hi to the beginnings of the second american revolution. I agree, it might be needed. Will it be needed? That definitely remains to be seen. Things are changing and we are well on our way to winning the war for peoples minds. We have a long way to go though and the question is if enough people can be reached before time runs out.

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.

What Percentage...
