As we all know, the United States came to be through a revolution against what we perceived as a relative tyranny of England, our Founding Fathers at one point found enough was enough and formed their own country. The Founding Fathers not only made further revolution by the citizens of its new country possible (1st and 2nd ammendment specifically) but some would say encouraged the use of violent revolt if our Government acted in a way to justify it. What I'm wondering is, when is that point? Why don't we as a Nation have a specific pushing point, a line in the sand of sorts to our leaders that say that when you cross that point we will take matters into our own hands and what is that line? At what point do we feel not only is violence justified but the right course of action?

I don't think the American Revolution was justified.

It's not about whether you agree with the American Revolution it's, is there ever a point where such violence is justified and if so when.

If it's just "when will America revolt now", the answer is most assuredly "some point after the loss of television and steady supply of food". Probably unemployment will help, since a long day's work saps energy away from dissent.

I'm not asking when will the people revolt in a "predict the future" sense. I'm asking, what point if there is any, should we consider the breaking point for us tolerating abusement of power by our Government that pisses us off so much that we decide it's time to use force to set an example for all future leaders.

Like is it when the Government takes all of our guns away, or bans all free speech, or detains an entire section of the US? I mean the majority of us at least pretend that we'd rebel against an abusive Government, but none of us actually have set guidelines on at what point would a Government finally be considered abusive.

I think the breaking point for most people is when they are the ones negatively affected by government action. For example, people might not care about whether or not someone else is using drugs, but they probably won't oppose the drug war if it does not affect them. However, drug users will fight back and utilize violent means, if necessary, in order to get access to drugs.
