    The pitchforks will likely be bayonets armed with a balanced budget amendment pointed at the poor. After all, it is their fault. They want to "take" the little stuff we have left.

    The oligarchs have done a masterful job at redirecting anger towards ourselves.

    I wouldn't be too optimistic about the outcome of such a revolt. It's not going to be a leftward one. Take a look at Europe and their right wing party resurgence.

    •  Look at the funding for these right-wing parties (6+ / 0-)

      In the US, Rupert Murdoch ginned up the tea party. It's clear what the 0.01% are doing -- setting things up so that, if there should be a revolution, the right wing thugs would immediately start shooting "zombies" -- by which they mean blah people, brown people, libruls, hippies, fags etc. And then the military would establish martial law to keep order -- and you have Banana Dictatorship America. With Rupert Murdoch and the Koch brothers paying the warlords to run things the way the like. And their first order of business would undoubtedly be to establish an American peerage with themselves as Royalty.
