I wrote last weekend on what I would do. Much to my surprise the Free State Project put it on their Essays page and on the front page of their site!
I take it you voted #5...

Anyways, I can't think of any examples of events in history where people successfully worked within the system to make a major change in government. It's always required war or some other violent revolution.

I for one would like to TRY it. Even the founding fathers tried working within the system, until it was clear there would be no way to change the system from within. Only then commenced the violent revolution.
...but you don't seem to be very confident that the project is going to succeed without violence (which I would assume, is out of the question).
Perhaps I misinterpreted your post though.

I'm not at all confident that a violent revolution won't be required; and if it is, I'd rather be among a few thousand other people who are likely to understand this.

No, I got the hell out. I'm in Wisconsin, planning my move to New Hampshire next year.

I'd love a picture of that. I spent way too much of my life living in Iowa City, and did occasionally get up to Waterloo/Cedar Falls.

There's a billboard in Cedar Falls that actually says THAT? I must see this.

So when is the Congressional hunting season again?

General / District of Columbia Personal Protection Act

Look what I found sitting in a Congressional committee while engaged in a search for something else entirely.

District of Columbia Personal Protection Act - To restore Second Amendment rights in the District of Columbia.

They just came right out and said it: Not only do guns in the hands of honest people prevent crime, but the local gun bans are unconstitutional.

Now to see if they actually pass the thing this time around.

Just tell Verizon that you don't believe in the "Federal Excise Tax" and you want it removed from your bill. They may send you a form to sign and return, and they may turn you in to the IRS. But don't worry too much about either.
