    Opinion piece that I found interesting:

    http://www.cnn.com/2011/OPINION/01/27/bogus.right.rebel/index.html?hpt=T2

    While in principle I agree with the gentleman, there's a hiccup with his thinking: the Declaration of Independence, upon which our country was originally founded.
    I agree with the author of the opinion piece: We have no right of revolution. When there is a clear and present danger of these rights being taken, we have a responsibility.

    (disclaimer: this in no way is meant to be a "call to action"; it is merely an opinion about someone else's opinion.)
