John W. Whitehead says NO in this thought provoking essay:
America is a ticking time bomb.
All that remains to be seen is who - or what - will set fire to the fuse.
We are poised at what seems to be the pinnacle of a manufactured breakdown, with police shooting unarmed citizens, snipers shooting police, global and domestic violence rising, and a political showdown between two presidential candidates equally matched in unpopularity.

We are fast becoming an anemic, weak, pathetically diluted offspring of our revolutionary forebears incapable of mounting a national uprising against a tyrannical regime.
If there is to be any hope of reclaiming our government and restoring our freedoms, it will require a different kind of coup: nonviolent, strategic and grassroots, starting locally and trickling upwards. Such revolutions are slow and painstaking. They are political, in part, but not through any established parties or politicians.
Most of all, as I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, for any chance of success, such a revolution will require more than a change of politics: it will require a change of heart among the American people, a reawakening of the American spirit, and a citizenry that cares more about their freedoms than their fantasy games.

I agree with him - this is a manufactured breakdown, and no armed rebellion could possibly succeed. Modern revolutions of that sort all have had a similar outcome:
MEET THE NEW BOSS, SAME AS THE OLD BOSS
The US deep state and its minions have had over 240 years of experience implementing their "divide and rule" strategy. They know what they're doing, and they're quite adept at infiltrating and overthrowing entire nations and their economies. They're ready for us to rebel; in fact, they want us to so they can mow us down using the guns and bullets we bought for them.
