The Constitution wasn't written the next day. The British didn't hold out their pinky fingers and cry over the spilled tea...

THEY KILLED PEOPLE. There was a revolution.

That's my point. That was civil disobedience. When it happened, the government cracked down, when they did, it got crazy, and people died.

You can't spin this. Violence leads to change.

I'm telling you all that if we really want to lead this, we have to stop complaining and be bold enough to be the ones willing to risk the penalties of civil disobedience.

Will anyone die, I don't know. But violence will happen and people will be hurt. It's not a wish, I don't want that and I know, strategically even that an assault on our government would not only be bad for our cause, but fruitless and a waste of life.
