"Mathematics of Rule" proves who will win and why. The irony is, this is a re-run of a war that was already won, whose result forms the very basis of former western civilization (the rules by which we cooperate for MUTUAL self-interest):

With mass civil disobedience war may not be needed. Authority can only be grounded on acceptance by the subjects. Let us stop accepting this authority. Étienne de la Boétie teaches us that we merely need to stop helping the state for it to fall. I tried to post a link to the work "The Politics of Obedience: The Discourse of Voluntary Servitude" and the spam filter thought I was spamming. Anyway, if you are interested you can probably find it by Googling either the author or the work.

Unfortunately, this article implies a bright dividing line between producers and expropriators, where there is no such line. Most producers see no problem with sending their kids to a government school, receiving Socialist Security, or raiding Middle Eastern countries for their oil. So the first battle of the war will be within the brains of these people, deciding which they really want to be - producers or expropriators. Tea Party folks will have to face up to the fact almost all of them are hypocrites.
