well, i'm an american

so revolution is really a part of my DNA. I can't help it, I believe in standing up to injustice and fighting for what you believe in. (I guess sometimes that includes fighting for the right to fight for your rights, but that's another story for another time.) I loved this quote from the Western Civilizations text book I'm borrowing from my sister: "The English Peasants' Revolt of 1381 was the most prominent of all. It was a product not of desperation but of rising expectations."
