2nd American Revolution has begun - Celente

Wanted to further highlight this article by trends forecaster Gerald Celente, who says that the "Second American Revolution" is underway.

Some excerpts from Celente's piece:


"The natives are restless. The third shot of the “Second American Revolution” has been fired. History is being made. But just as with the first two shots, the third shot is not being heard...

The third volley, fired in early August, was aimed point blank at Senators and House members pitching President Obama’s health care reform package to constituents. In fiery town hall meetings, enraged citizens shouted down their elected representatives. It took a strong police presence and/or burly bodyguards to preserve a safe physical space between the politicians and irate townspeople...

.
..Rightly or wrongly, the legislation is regarded as yet another straw on the already overloaded camel’s back. A series of gigantic, unpopular government-imposed (but taxpayer-financed) bailouts, buyouts, rescue and stimulus packages have been stuffed down the gullet of Americans. With no public platform to voice their opposition, options for citizens have been limited to fruitless petitions, e-mails and phone calls to Congress … all fielded by anonymous staff underlings.

Now, with Congress in recess and elected representatives less than a stone’s throw away, the public is exploding. The devil is not in the details of the heath care reform, the devil is the government mandating health care. Regardless of how the plan is pitched or what is being promised, to the public the legislation is yet another instance of big government taking another piece out of their lives and making them pay for it; again telling them what they can or cannot do.

Though in its early stages, the “Second American Revolution” is underway. "

Whether or not these events signal an oncoming revolution, one thing is clear; ordinary Americans are now striving to make their voices heard on the issues that are being forced upon them.

We are coming to the end of a decade marked by a huge wave of political (and societal) polarization, lies and deception, mass distraction, violation of personal liberties and our constitutional rights, deficit spending, and unjust wars.

Add to this the fallout from now-busted bubbles and a global financial crisis, along with the rise of our "bailout economy" and forced "healthcare reform", and you could have the makings of a powder keg ready to explode.

What kind of sentiment do you see & hear out there?

Here are some highlights from William O'Neil's interview with IBD: William O'Neil's interest in the stock market began when he started working as a young adult.  "I say many times that I didn't get that much out of college. I didn't have much interest in the stock market until I graduated from college. When I got married, I had to look out into the future and get more serious. The investment world had some appeal and that's when I started studying it. I became a stock broker after I got out of the Air Force."    He moved to Los Angeles and started work in a stock broker's office with twenty other guys.
