The change it had to come

The Revolution Starts Now

I was walkin’ down the street
In the town where I was born
I was movin’ to a beat
That I’d never felt before
So I opened up my eyes
And I took a look around
I saw it written â┚¬Ëœcross the sky
The revolution starts now
Yeah, the revolution starts now

— Steve Earle

The Democrats swept into power with an antiwar mandate from the people. They must be forced to deliver. Among other things, that’s what the revolution will be about.

It’s about freedom too (also by Steve Earle)

F the CC

Piss and moan about the immigrants
But don’t say nothin’ about the president
A democracy don’t work that way
I can say anything I wanna say

So fuck the FCC
Fuck the FBI
Fuck the CIA
Livin’ in the motherfuckin’ USA

The pendulum, at long last, is swinging to the left. Let’s use it, exploit it, organize around it, and bring real change to the country. Sure, most Congressional Dems are still warmongers. But something fundamental shifted in this country yesterday. Better times are coming.
If the Democrats fail to accept this changed landscape, and develop a political discourse to accomplish the dismantling much of this country’s global military presence, the same anti-establishment sentiment that wiped out the Republican majority in the House (and, perhaps, the Senate) will soon destroy them, more rapidly than they could ever imagine.
