    No in that 1. 40% believe it's liberal socialism that's taken over, and 2. the rest either don't realize it or those that do vote against it when they're led to believe they have that choice.

    Yes they've accepted it in the sense that the only way to reject it is to overturn an entire government, something that has never been done between Canada and Mexico in all history. We did conduct 2 secessions, one of which failed, and we have often mobilized over specific narrow issues, but we've never replace an entire governing machine.

    Nobody has any idea how to go about that.

    The closest thing we've ever had to revolution in governance was the New Deal, but that was led by a conventionally elected liberal government under specific issue pressures from liberals, labor, farmers, veterans and other groups.

    It's a lot easier to list the steps and mileposts needed than to come up with a plan to achieve them.

    We are called to speak for the weak, for the voiceless, for victims of our nation and for those it calls enemy.... --ML King "Beyond Vietnam"
