Or just remove the traitors in office who are constantly trying to dismantle the Constitution, which is an abrogation of their sworn duties to protect it.

Too many uninformed voters. They all have one hot topic people will willingly vote blindly for, and take whatever negatives come after.

Plus electronic ballot stuffing.

Hey, I think I'm gonna BE that guy! I have no desire to get health insurance. It seems like a huge waste of money to me. I'm young and healthy. When I DO get sick, I go to urgent care, get out my wallet, and pay the man! It's not that complicated.

Can you afford to pay a 20,000+ dollar hospital bill from a hospital that may not offer flexible if any financing options? Insurance is worth it for the discounted rates you get on services and presciptions. That's what you're really paying for, the privelage of being charged the rates they charge insurance companies instead of the skull-fucking they give people without it.

So if you have an expensive medical emergency and run out of money for treatment, what would you like to happen? Be left on the side of the road to die? Or would you go for free emergency room treatment?

That would work if you could get a lot of people to do it.

The problem is it's impossible to organize that many people because

1) Mainstream media. They will never air anything like "refuse to pay your taxes until the government starts obeying the Constitution again".

2) NSA and mass surveillance, which is funneled to the level of local cops: this means that any organization of a protest can be preemptively broken up. This is almost always one of the chief roles of mass surveillance in oppressive regimes.

3) Mass surveillance means you can pin any number of crimes on those people you dislike and want to disrupt, as well as place agent provocateurs to commit crimes that will be blamed on the group.

4) Even if they did organize properly, somehow getting around points 1-3, those protests would be met with militarized police violence. That's why NYPD has an "anti-protester" group with armored cars with .50 mounted machine guns.

Probably none now, but in the future could be used to justify surveillance on you for just about any reason.

It means that if for whatever reason, the government decides it doesn't like you, it can trawl through all your internet history/data and look for anything incriminating to bust you on

You can be arrested for running a nmap command, if I'm reading this correctly:

(A) malicious reconnaissance, including anomalous patterns of communications that appear to be transmitted for the purpose of gathering technical information related to a cybersecurity threat or security vulnerability;

They're all assholes. traitors

Fixed. Actively trying to destroy the Constitution is the same as aiding and giving comfort to enemies of the US, which is treason.

Someone who flips you off in traffic is an asshole. Someone who tries to deprive you of basic human rights so that a corporation can make a few more bucks is a traitor and a terrorist.
