The problem with the Patriot and middle class supporting rallies... in places like the District of Columbia is that they are Employed and simply can not leave their jobs. Most Patriots are barely able to keep the wolf off their door steps... living pay check to pay check... They simply don't have the cash reserves to make a trip to DC or too pay for lodging and meals, in one of the most 'expensive' cities in the Nation.
The left has paid and subsidized (welfare) drones... who have no jobs, live off government checks and programs, which do not require them to be in any particular place, unlike those who work for a living. Many of the 'Occupy Wall Street' crowd were students, welfare recipients and vagrants, recruited, transported and often paid to attend, by the likes of George Sorros and Move-on.org.
Unless the Patriot movement is willing to find alternative and innovative methods... to energize and involve their base (working America) they will be hard pressed to field boots in the streets of America. What is needed are organized labor strikes and rallies, coordinated nationally but conducted regionally. Rallies that have an initial weekend surge and then are maintained by a coordinated follow on force of volunteers; regional volunteers rotated in and out as needed to keep a significant number boots in the street.
It takes major resourcing to support viable assemblies... Billions not Millions, too properly fund a national campaign. If the Patriot wants to put boots on the ground, in large numbers, they will need to reconsider how to accomplish that task. Innovative concepts which operate outside the 'Box' of normal political thought must be forth coming. Concepts the mobilize the otherwise busy citizens in support of the Patriot cause.
Boots in the Street are IMPORTANT to the Patriot movement... for both morale and the effective application of political power. Public perception and opinion are often persuaded by large crowds (numbers), which appeal to the human psyche and the need to identify with others. The Patriot must effectively organize, plan and execute, political activities with events that grab the narrative and focus America on their cause. That will take NEW and effective forms of political dissent... which appeal to the psyche... effectively mastering identity politics.
