“Lawful rebellion” in this country begins with the United States Constitution.
Unlike most European countries, we have a federal structure that specifically protects the rights and powers enjoyed by the States. It was codified by the Constitution and reaffirmed in the Ninth and Tenth Amendments: all powers not specifically enumerated in the Constitution are reserved to the States, and to the people.
Richard Mack is a former sheriff in Arizona, and his mission is to remind his fellow Americans that resistance to the tyranny of the federal government begins with the county sheriff. Under the Constitution, as he points out in this video, the President of the United States has no power whatsoever to give orders to a county sheriff. The Sheriff takes an oath to support the Constitution, and not the federal government:

Sheriff Mack’s initiative is a civilian law-enforcement version of the Oath Keepers movement among serving and former members of the military. The push to take back the country from extra-constitutional governance thus begins with the courageous men and women who protect us both at home and abroad.
It’s unfortunate that it took the unbridled hubris of Barack Hussein Obama and his socialist handlers to ignite the flame of lawful rebellion among the American people.
The usurpation of the Constitution did not begin with Obama. Woodrow Wilson mounted the first major assault against it, and more extensive damage was inflicted by Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon, Bill Clinton, and George W. Bush.
By the time Hussein got to it, the Constitution was already in tatters, with just a few fragmentary clauses still nailed to the wall. Now the Messiah, in his infinite wisdom, has decided to destroy what little remains.
It takes a lot to wake up the American people, but when they are roused, they are fierce beyond imagining.
