Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I am not sure America is ready for a revolution. The elites have the bread-and-circus routine down-pat. Remember the Roman plebs never revolted but the slaves did with some regularity. Also, the Eastern Roman Empire never fell (it was simply taken over piecemeal first by the Arans and then by the Turks), and the Western one rather decomposed.

We have met the enemy, and he is us — Pogo

In the US, the power elites only give us circuses.  The program is circuses and circuses; bread, you're on your own.  Bread now costs $4 a loaf.  In a few years, when no one can afford that, you'll get your revolution.  Or perhaps I should say, I'll get mine!
