This is no revolution!
By Gabriel Garnica
October 20, 2010

Some people argue that the upcoming elections and the present tidal wave against Obama and his minions is a revolution of the people, or of true Americans. I respectfully beg to differ. A revolution is often defined as some sort of radical, sudden, and/or fundamental change in course. The present surge against the Left is not radical, sudden, or fundamental but, more accurately, it is a predictable reaction of an American majority slapped out of its complacency by the absurdity of the Left. Contrary to the myth often perpetuated by liberals and their media geishas, most Americans are neither liberal nor radical. In fact, the majority of Americans are quite traditional and have strong family values. The majority of Americans love this country and do not feel the need to apologize for the greatest nation this world has ever seen. The majority of Americans do not seek to shove religion under a rock or worse, selectively favor one religion while bashing all others while incredibly citing freedom of religion as their justification.

What we are witnessing today is not a revolution. It is a return to normal; it is America's homecoming to its true values, traditions, and mission. Even the smartest students mess up a test once in a while. The best athletes drop the ball once in a while. Sinatra must have messed up a note sometime. America can make mistakes. It can forget what made it the greatest nation on earth. It can fall drunk with imbecilic rhetoric from empty suits and just as empty heads every few years or so. The only reason to dwell on the mistake is to lessen the chance to make it again too soon. Two years ago was a big mistake and a few weeks from now is the chance to start correcting that mistake. Ultimately, the next election is more a realization than a revolution. It is the awakening from the stupor, the gleam of light from the darkness, and the return of the prodigal nation.

The Left and their pet media warn us of impending doom, of regressing as if we have been progressing, and of radical extremism overthrowing our nation. As they do in a million other areas, the Left and their media are selling hypocrisy at a discount price. If we look at America's history, at its roots, it is the Left and their media who are extremist radicals pushing away from America's true foundation.

We are nearing the beginning of change, but that change is not a revolution. Rather, it is a realization, an awakening, and a reminder that just as America did not become great because of one person or over a short time, neither can it be destroyed or torn apart because of a few empty suits with empty minds carrying empty promises with empty slogans.
