Currently there is less than 1% of America's population that are somewhat awake to what is happening to America - one or two million people out of an eligible electorate of about 210 million.

Over 98% of voters (that bothered voting) voted for Goldman Sachs in 2012.
Only 1 million people voted for Gary Johnson - plus an unknown number that wrote in Ron Paul - probably a few hundred thousand more.

About 90 million people didn't bother voting.
Either they were apathetic or they couldn't see the point with so little difference between the 2 main parties.

When Ron Paul's policies are explained in terms that people can readily understand you can get 80%+ support.
At least that is my experience on Huffington Post.
My article above aims to do that.

(You can't mention Ron Paul's name because the media have done such a hatchet job on him for 20 years plus.)

Only 4% of Americans fought in the War of Independence.
They WON.
Despite all the odds and the British having far more resources and money than they did.

The purpose of the article above is to outline a strategy to try and turn one or two million people into 12 million or 4% of the population.
(As a first step.)

The most likely outcome (by far) is it won't happen and America will decline into a second rate power - just like the British Empire did 1885 to 1945.

That does not mean we should give up trying to prevent that scenario from happening.
That scenario handovers global hegemony to SE Asia centered on China within a few decades.

It also results in economic carnage in the United States with the loss of the US Dollar as the world's Global Reserve Currency.
China is already working on that, in a coalition of the BRICS.

The decline of the Roman Empire also has many similarities to the coming decline of the American Empire.

History does not often repeat but it often rhymes.
The mistakes of history are oft repeated.
The collapse of the Roman, British, Russian and American Empires.

The future of the next few decades has already been written in 6ft high letters on the wall.
Only a very few people have turned their heads to read it.
The future is bleak unless we do something about it.

"In the end, more than they wanted freedom, they wanted security. They wanted a comfortable life, and they lost it all -- security, comfort, and freedom. When ... the freedom they wished for was freedom from responsibility, then Athens ceased to be free."
