Got a Revolution!
The Revolution has been going on since Reagan's advent; it's been consolidated and perfected under the Bushevik regime, to the point where, now, with the triumphant passage of the FISA "reform" measure, the Reagan --->Bushevik Revolution is all but complete.
There is no Republic any more, and there will be no return to what Our Founders had in mind. That experiment is over.
There cannot be a "Revolution" from this point on, at least not for a generation or more; now there can only be accommodation, assimilation, or civil war. But if there is a civil war, it will come from the darker regions of the right, not from the left, for the left has been wholly neutered. The very idea of physical struggle disturbs Modern Progressives; if it can't be argued rationally, without physical action or struggle, it is not a valid premise, it is not worthy of Serious Consideration, it is not real.
With no rising from the Left (such as remains of a Left in this country) and the only likely physical struggle against assimilation into the Imperium coming from the right, we are in for some interesting times indeed.
[Note: For those who don't click through the YouTube video above, it's a performance by Marty Balin and Slick Aguilar in April of 2008 at the Turning Point Cafe in Piermont, NY. For those who aren't old enough to remember, Marty Balin was a member of Jefferson Airplane, a seminal counterculture band of the '60's. When there was a... Revolution. "Volunteers of America" was one of the anthems of that... Revolution. And Marty's still out there performing it. Heh.]
