No, we are not close to this. All voters have to do is wise up a bit and stop voting in Republicans and Democrats. A violent revolt is not necessary here.

No we are not close to this happening here, even when the far right wingers whine that it is. I am still waiting for them to start their revolution and secede from the country after Obama won his second term like they were promising.

Yeah or like when Bush won in 04 how we heard the same thing from the other extremists.

All a bunch of whiners and do nothings. They vote democrat and republican over and over and expect change.

Unless of course... the game is rigged. I guess we'd have to have a better turnout of folks voting for 3rd parties such as you and I, before we could draw that conclusion. Then again, considering the 2 main parties are pretty much one and the same anymore, when it comes to wanting a more intrusive and bloated government, it wouldn't suprise me.

One must understand what the Ukranian issue is all about, and I get a feeling you do not understand. It is not an "anti government" issue (where people protest against government in general), it is an issue where half the country is pro-europe, and the other half is pro-Russia. The current leadership (democratically elected) is pro-Russia, and the pro-EU people protest against it.

I thought people threatening to leave the country when Bush won was being idiotic as well.

My shipmates and I were crew on the last american military ship to berth at a soviet port, vladivostok to be exact, in the spring of 1992

we had gotten underway again in the sea of japan when we learned the communist empire had fallen for good. for young men and women who had grown up in the cold war, the feeling of euphoria swept over everyone. no longer would people have to live under the oppression of marxism, maybe after no longer being told they were nothing and the govt was everything, the people we had visited in vladivostok and elsewhere in russia would no longer be desperately sad and depressed

now to see my own govt, with its own marxist aspirations, opposing democracy in the old communist empire, that is the OPPOSITE of euphoria, and perhaps i relate to the depression of soviet subjects a little better....
