I watch a lot of world events unfolding and it amazes me that none of what I see ever seems to occur in this country. What is so special about America that we don’t follow the likes of Venezuela, or Argentina, or some of the third world countries where coup d’états are a way of life. Here, we elect incompetents all the time, and we face disastrous consequences, yet we don’t revolt…yet.
I sense that is starting to change.
Take a look at both the left and the right wings of society. This year, Bernie Sanders, some seventy-something guy from Vermont who had never had anybody pay much attention to him in his career, almost became the Democrats’ nominee for president. Why? Because he was different. He called out the establishment. He said things have got to change. On the right (or what we now call the right), Donald Trump did exactly the same thing, and was indeed nominated. So, what happens IF someone like a Hillary Clinton gets elected, with all of her faults, all of her lies, all of her distortions? Might there be a coup d’état?
I’m starting to think the answer to that question may be yes. Look at who the military has consistently and overwhelmingly supported in the past few elections. It’s been the candidate that loves the military (remember Bill Clinton’s famous line, “I loathe the military”?) and that is usually the Republican. Look at the police officers getting shot at in the streets, and look at the side rushing to their aid. It’s the Republicans. Democrats are too busy saying that the criminals and the police need to “come together”. Border agents have for the last eight years faced an administration that won’t allow them to do their job, and when they can, they are either killed for it, or they are punished by the same government they work for. Now, put the military and the police and the border patrol agents up against politicians, and who do you think wins in a revolt?
I would put my money on the military and the police and the border patrol every time out.
My hunch is we are just about one or two horrific incidents away from that happening. Now, I’m not calling for violence, but I am saying I think it’s going to happen. You’re seeing the violence already occurring on the left. Soon, you’re going to see it on the right. If a Hillary Clinton type person gets elected and is as fraudulent and weak as Barack Obama has been, I have a sneaky suspicion that you’re going to see something major occur in this country. And the outcome isn’t going to be good for the left. Especially if the people they’ve been maligning for the past decade or two have anything to say about it.
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
