Most don’t. But you might.

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

Revolution, The Beatles, 1968.

Whatever you want, you’re not going to get it from the Republican Party – unless, of course, what you want is more and bigger government. Lawrence Vance explains, today:

Another Republican revolution has now failed.

A Republican revolution can be defined as a time when Republicans gained control of both Houses of Congress and therefore were in a position to severely limit the federal government.

There have been five Republican revolutions in modern times, and they have all ended in failure.

One hates to write off the Trump Train just yet but that’s what Vance has done – and with excellent reasons. I think I’m down to 1/2 of 1% of a shred of hope, a fool’s hope.

He gets right to the failures of this year, followed by a scolding for “conservatives” and a lesson about the DNC:

First, the failure to repeal Obamacare. …

Second, the failure to cut back the warfare state. …

And third, the failure to cut back the welfare state. …

Are there still conservatives and libertarians left in America who are gullible enough to believe that Republicans are any better than Democrats? The Republicans are welfare/warfare statists. The only difference between them and the Democrats is that the Republicans talk about the Constitution, the free market, and limited government while they ignore the Constitution, the free market, and limited government. At least the Democrats are honest statists.

Instead of simply repealing Obamacare as promised, they appear to be giving us (slowly) … uh … whatever the replacement thing is…

Another peace candidate found the joy of bombs, missiles, and drones.

Another joke of a “budget” that might have been written by Karl Marx.

Meanwhile serious problems manifest. The barbarians aren’t at the gates – they’ve smashed through and more keep coming. This is both figurative and literal.

I mentioned something about this before the last election. I will probably mention it again. Please stop falling for the “two-party” charade. Well, actually, at this point it really doesn’t matter anymore. Just know you’re being lied to by the Atlanta Falcons of politics.
