At what point are you truly prepared to take up arms and revolt?

Pull the trigger too soon and the entirety of the U.S. military will come down on the resistance. It would happen without rules of engagement, which mean you wouldn't have the protections that our recent enemies have enjoyed.
Even if the trigger is pulled at the proper time, China would enjoy the national weakness and take advantage of the situation.
Keeping that in mind, what is your suggestion? By suggestion, I don't mean some generalistic BS.

Really depends. I would have to admit I am not the bravest, I would need others to start doing this, and then I might join them.
Certainly I would consider it if my government (Australian) enacted martial law, attempted massive control, laws and police action got out of hand.
At what point will I grab my semi-automatic AR carbine and rush out to take on a well trained and supplied army of bodyarmor-clad soldiers who have armored vehicles, automatic weapons, drones, artillery, excellent communications, able leadership, and strike aircraft, knowing that this would almost certainly lead to a very painful death and accomplish nothing? Ummmmm, no time soon.
I'll continue to pull my trigger now... at the ballot box, by pestering my congressmen, and by speaking out against injustice and corruption wherever I see it.
Suicide, however symbolic, never accomplished anything.

The key to a revolt is how much of the military will follow the oath they swore and join the right side or not.
Two different scenarios are being played out now in South America, watch Brazil and Venezuela for the outcome.
The people in Venezuela were striped of their guns, are now herded like pigs by a complicit military, which is what they live like.
Brazil is just starting up, military may kick out the dictator.
We need Olie North to run guns to the people of Venezuela, tons of steril AK's from the ME to be had.
Hey, the Israelies have captured hundreds of tons of light and heavy weapons the Iranians tried to smuggle to the PLO, PLA.
Hell, let dick shit holder give it a try, he has experience too in gun running.
Too bad George Numrich is dead, he was an expert on it, got them into Chile 60 some odd years ago.

Based on what I see in the news I don't have any hope for that. Look at the lock down orders and arrests being enforced by police officers across the country in violation of the Bill of Rights.. They are following the orders from their superiors. They may or may not agree with them but they WILL follow them. History has many examples of police and military personnel abusing their fellow citizens on orders from superiors. These officers swore an oath at their commissioning to protect and defend the Constitution of The United States, but when faced with the choice of protecting the rights of the citizens guaranteed by the 1st Amendment or disobeying that order and jeopardizing their career and pension, your constitutional rights be damned.

The entire "run to the hills with my AR15" "Red Dawn" scenario is the chest beating rhetoric of someone inspired by watching too many movie-land fantasies. WERE civil war ever to come again, it would NOT be guerilla forces of such absurd Hollywood invention. It would be entire states, with their own National Guard, air support, modern weaponry, and military bases within their borders... resisting a centralized federal government.
