In March of 1962 JFK observed that “Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.” Sixty years later his words resonate.
We are seeing the foundations laid for a revolution. Whether that revolution is peaceful or violent remains to be seen. With virtually every society over time power becomes accumulated into the hands of the few elites. Those elites in turn run the nation as their personal fiefdoms where they utilize the machinery of the state to enrich themselves, accumulate power and use trifles to appease the exponentially larger population of serfs they rule over.
This reality applies to monarchies, to Communist tyrannies, to “democracies”, theocracies and even, as we’re coming to discover, republics. It doesn’t have anything to do with economics either as it occurs in capitalist states, socialist states, Communist states and mercantile states. The only difference is how long it takes for the structure to collapse. It took the Roman Republic 500 years to collapse, the French monarchy 1,000 years, the Soviet Union 70 years and the EU is shaky after just 30 years. The American Republic finds itself on a precipice of collapse after less than 250 years.
Here, we’re seeing it unfold right in front of us.
There is perhaps no better example of the disconnect between the ruling elites that last month’s utterance from the clown who runs the GOP in the Senate, Mitch McConnell. He said of America sending another $45 billion to the Ukraine…. “Providing assistance for Ukrainians to defeat the Russians is the number one priority for the United States right now according to most Republicans.” That may be the biggest lie in American politics since Bill Clinton told the American people “I did not have sexual relations with that woman.” Ukraine is not and has not been even close to the top of the list of important things to either the American people or Republicans. According to data published by Statista the day before the election in November, of the 15 top priorities for Americans, foreign policy came in at #15 with only 37% of finding it “very important” while #1 was inflation with 69%, followed by healthcare and jobs at 62% and 61% respectively. National security came in #4 with 60%, but most Republicans feel like the invasion on our southern border is far more threatening to the Republic than anything going on between Russia and Ukraine. Democrats, not so much.
But that’s just one example of the elites pushing the country towards revolution. Another is the House January 6 Committee that was set up to “investigate” the “insurrection” following the election of November 2020. From start to finish the Committee was an exercise in gaslighting half the American population, with the ultimate goal being to keep Donald Trump off the ballot in 2024. Lapdog Liz Chaney stated as much: “There’s no question: A man as dangerous as Donald Trump can absolutely never be anywhere near the Oval Office ever again,”
The Committee laughably accused Donald Trump of inciting an insurrection, ignored proof that Nancy Pelosi is responsible for the chaos that took place, barely spoke to Ray Epps, one of the few, if not the only person caught on tape actually encouraging protesters to break into the Capitol, and they are hiding and refusing to release of over 14,000 hours of video from the Capitol during said “insurrection”.
Another example of the elites putting their thumbs in the eyes of average Americans is the $1.7 trillion budget that Congress passed in December. No Congress in modern history has seen an outgoing House majority pass an omnibus appropriations bill in a lame-duck session. Had Congress articulated their priorities and passed the bill before the election that would have been one thing, but they didn’t, because doing so would have allowed the American people to vote on said priorities. Nonetheless, even without Democrats showing their anti-American hand voters decided to deliver a GOP majority to the House. Traditionally a short term spending bill would have covered the holidays and given the new GOP majority the ability to influence the remainder of the FY 2023 spending. But the Democrats would have none of it and shived the American people just before Christmas.
Of course the GOP could have stopped it with a filibuster, but instead of giving the American people a voice 18 treacherous Republicans voted “Yes”., forcing Americans to borrow hundreds of billions of dollars to:

We’ve tried almost all the boxes —
Ballot Box doesn’t work — our elections are tainted.
Jury Box is a joke — the courts are used for Lawfare against the People.
Soapbox has failed — if you speak out too much you can get arrested, cancelled or physically attacked. The authorities will shrug and say you deserved it.
That’s three boxes down. The Powers That Be have taken them off the board. But we still have options.
“With virtually every society over time power becomes accumulated into the hands of the few elites. Those elites in turn run the nation as their personal fiefdoms where they utilize the machinery of the state to enrich themselves, accumulate power and use trifles to appease the exponentially larger population of serfs they rule over.”
The solution is not easy to accomplish, it’s at the level of the American Revolution in societal upheaval.
The rise of wealth sovereigns and their disconnect with the common man means they’re not able to rule over the common man.
As the American Revolution got rid of the monarchy from government, so the wealth sovereigns of our day must be removed from government and politics.
That's what happens when you destroy the peoples' confidence in the election process and government institutions.
You won a tiny little battle by cheating (you got rid of the Orange Man and got Joe elected), but you lost the war...and destroyed the country in the process.
We are already undergoing a revolution that has been creeping up on us for many years, and then was put into overdrive in 2015, and has successfully swept away almost everything we knew as our country, leaving us with nothing but chaotic shambles everywhere we look.
This also applies to the UN - a 'dictator protection agency'...
Ammo box and coffin box.
In many cases, there won’t even be a coffin.
Nations are not a collection of people, territory, language or classes. They are an idea that is bought into by all. If the idea of An American Democracy is seen as a sham. No one will support it—That’s what happened with Rome and her Empire. They could use Mercenaries for a time—until they take over. What if there is a war and no one supports a corrupt government? Will the elites fight? Who will work for the bloated state? Its easy to lose the confidence of the people—and a “man on a White Horse” will sweep into power and set things right. I wonder if Trump has been taking riding lessons—or his sons.
you can pay men to kill.... but you can’t pay them to die for you or your country.... you die for cultural, religious or familial protection or traditions.... that’s what the left doesn’t get ....yet.
