Part of the reason Americans are not resisting tyranny now is that they are either too young to know what freedom is or too old to care.
Americans are lazy, scared, ignorant, defeated, degraded, divided, and distracted. Why go out and risk getting arrested and killed fighting tyranny when they have weed, beer, food stamps, A/C, and TV?
Americans also think freedom wouldn't benefit them and tyranny only affects others so they try to ignore or justify being unconstitutionally wiretapped, groped by the TSA, being tracked with license plate readers, stopping for checkpoints, and being stopped and frisked. Americans don't know history and they think that tyranny won't get worse.
Another reason Americans are not resisting the police state now is because there is no money in fighting tyranny. No one ever became a billionaire by fighting tyranny.
Americans are whistling down to the concentration camps and don't even know it.
