You Say You Want A Revolution?

The Democrat Reaction To Last Night's SOTU speech made me think of the Beatles song Revolution.

Watching last night’s State Of The Union Address by President Trump and the democrat’s sullen reaction made me think immediately of The Beatles song Revolution. It was written by Paul McCartney and John Lennon and released in November 1968, during the worst year of Vietnam protests and following the assassinations of Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King, Jr. It was a tumultuous time in America filled with violent anti-war protests and rioting in the inner cities. No normal person could hark back to that time and feel good about it.

​So watching the Democrats and the usual media toadies that support them sit on their hands in stony silence as Trump skillfully lauded true-life examples of amazing American heroic individual stories ( as Presidents have done for the past 30 years in this forum) and the feel-good rhetoric of his speech about the economy and minority unemployment was too much for me to take. It made me think about 1968 all over again and all of those Baby Boomer revolutionaries who almost had the violent overthrow they wanted.

​You say you want a revolution

Well, you know

We all want to change the world

You tell me that it's evolution

Well, you know

We all want to change the world

But when you talk about destruction

Don't you know that you can count me out

​Those same Boomers are now in charge of the Democrat Party and hold the reins of the anti-Trump media. They are also the top bureaucrats in Washington D.C. and it’s perfectly clear that they do want a revolution. Now.

​How do I know this? They absolutely refuse to cooperate in any way with the Republicans and Trump - even on issues, they support like DACA. They also are the champions of the #Resist forces, the Woman’s March and the authors of the myth of Trump’s collusion with Russia as documented by the now discredited “dossier.” They’ve also apparently had support from the FBI during the end of the Obama Administration - as will shortly come out when the FBI’s formerly missing emails are made public. That’s the way the Boomer Resistance does revolution in 2018.

​You say you got a real solution

Well, you know

We'd all love to see the plan

You ask me for a contribution

Well, you know

We're doing what we can

But if you want money for people with minds that hate

All I can tell is brother you have to wait

​See, I agree with John Lennon here. Where’s the plan? Maybe if I knew what it is, I could come along - or at least see what the Democrats and the Left actually want. But all I see is Trump hatred with no plan. I really don’t think “No Plan” is enough to carry the day. And in fact, it’s pretty unoriginal.

​You say you'll change the constitution

Well, you know

We all want to change your head

You tell me it's the institution

Well, you know

You better free your mind instead

But if you go carrying pictures of chairman Mao

You ain't going to make it with anyone anyhow

​The Democrats and their enablers need to support our Constitution by acknowledging that the 2016 election was fair and legal. That’s the way our system works and it has made us a great nation. The other side always hates the President that they voted against - always. But they swallow hard and get on with governance and making changes constitutionally. The Left now wants to change the rules because they’re losing.

​Nullification and revolution are a serious and dangerous game.

​It’s time for an agenda of ideas, not pitchforks. But I’m afraid the Boomers have always been a whiney bunch. You can’t impeach a President because you don’t like him. The post-debate comments by CNN, The Washington Post and The New York Times reminded me of who the revolutionary inclined Boomers are.

​And like John Lennon, If this is all you’ve got- you can count me out - and most Americans, for that matter.

​In the meantime, enjoy the fact that America is working again, wages are continuing to rise and the proposals outlined by the President are sound and he appears to be reaching across the aisle, particularly on immigration reform. Because most of America is starting to believe in the results of this President’s plan if not his personality:

​Don't you know it's gonna be

All right, all right, all right

All right, all right, all right

All right, all right, all right

All right, all right

The Dems will not listen to reason at this point. And if, despite that, they win control of the House, they will probably become worse than ever.
