Are we heading in Europe's direction or maybe even the Middle East? Do American people really have what it takes to stand up to people like Walker, Made-off, and Wall St.?

In case nobody knows, a general strike is when everyone organizes to shut down the country through direct action in every major city usually accompanied with large scale demonstrations/marches clogging inner city streets and resisting anyone in authority trying to crackdown. America's a pretty big place. Do we have the power to energize that any many people to really shut things down and make a difference in the world? Can we make history?

I really wonder what the reaction of the America government would be if everyone just turned on it like that? Would they just allow us or would they crack down on us like all the other corrupt regimes? They've cracked down us for just protesting with out a permit before but shutting down cities all across the United States is HUGE; MUCH BIGGER THAN ANYTHING WE'VE EVER DONE BEFORE. I know Europe has done it but are we really ready for this?

Nothing seems to be changing around here even with Obama in office. He's becoming more and more like Bush everyday almost as if Bush is the one really running things while Obama is giving speeches. Eerie times we're living in. I this really does need to happen.
