I doubt that an uprising will get very far.. How far did the occupy movement get? ( And I think there was a lot of good stuff going on there, but in the grand scheme of things, it is but a foot note until they can be taken more seriously)Moreover look back to the 2000 presidential election... they can and will get their president of choice in to office... I do not usually like to sound conspiratorial but it seems entirely possible that such a scenario could happen again.. Plus too.. Ron Paul is not as popular as a lot of his supporters make him out to be. It does not make a lot of sense to take tracking polls as gospel... not this far out..
