No, most people are not pissed off at the government as a whole. Most people are either apathetic or convinced that the political system can bring about change.

Remember though, in the American Revolution, only 5% of the population was opposed to the British. The majority was either neutral [apathetic] or supported the British.

I suppose my conviction is based part on my hope that change can come about by means other than armed rebellion. However, I don't think that there is anywhere near 5% of the population that is pissed off and willing to use guns to bring about change. Less than 1%, I'd say.

I would say there are 5%, but that our current state of tyranny requires a larger population that is fully moblized to dislodge it.

I voted no.  As much as some of us would like to see a revolution, I don't think it's going to happen in our lifetimes.

Unextended then.

For me, I plan to be alive for another 2 centuries or more due to our advances in medicine and nanotechnology.
