Traveling from tea parties in Texas to "Oath Keeper" rallies in Massachusetts, VICE investigates whether the country is actually on the verge of the 2nd Revolutionary War.

The Department of Homeland Security classifies them as potential "domestic terrorists"; they prefer to be called patriots. As the economic crisis deepens, a growing movement of Americans is rejecting the two-party system and the mainstream media. They believe a violent revolution is imminent, and they're getting ready for it now. VICE correspondent Ryan Duffy crosses the country to meet the people on the front lines of the struggle. They include Alex Jones, a radio talk show host in Austin, Texas who is waking people up to the dangers of the corporate globalists — and has seen traffic on his websites increase dramatically in recent months. We also meet Sgt. Charles Dyer, a U.S. Marine stationed at Camp Pendleton who has taken an oath to disobey unconstitutional orders and take up arms against the government if it becomes tyrannical — and is training a citizen militia to do the same.

America has never had a revolution, nor a civil war.

It has enjoyed a successful secession from England and suffered an unsuccessful secession by the Confederacy.

Excellent!

I am curious, what form our new Flag? For surely people envision the incorporation of various elements in rather personal ways. I am both curious and anxious...

What about a white flag to represent the American Revolution.

I was hoping for a little more creativity.

Of course ,here I did not prove creative--I thought white means all possibilities but people have associated that only with peace.

So you're saying the new flag should not incorporate a lone star? Ok, ok, I can relate to that - so what would you suggest?

Reading a book.

Well, I can't argue with that - what else ya got? How 'bout if we fly the NY flag upside down? And hoist a lone star above it?
