President’s Day Reflection

Today is the American federal holiday known as President’s Day.  While the only real way in which most of us will be affected is that our garbage cans won’t be picked up and will have to sit overnight again, this holiday brought a landmark event for many of us who have taken on the personal responsibility of working to reclaim our freedom from a lawless government which ignores the American Constitution.  On this day when we celebrate American revolutionaries and founders such as General George Washington, I’m thinking about the event held on this holiday a few years ago during the United States Presidential election and campaigns of 2012.  The following is a reprint of a piece originally published by Combat Veterans for Ron Paul about the day many of our nation’s veterans gathered on President’s Day to make our statement loud and clear about our concerns regarding the Obama regime and the replacement we believed was severely needed in the White House – Congressman Dr. Ron Paul:

“Another significant part of a revolution is music… and when the music is original, it is even more fantastic.”   – Dr. Ron Paul

Rebel Inc. takes to the stage as anxious fans cheer. Kevin kick-starts the show with the opening riff to the song, “909 Revolution.” Benny’s powerful bass drives the music to the next level as Brian joins in on drums. Lead singer Adam Armstrong launches his lyrical assault in a crescendo that ignites the crowd like the 4th of July. With this type of energy, nobody has to tell the crowd what to do next. Enthusiastic listeners begin waving their arms, pumping their fists, yelling approvingly, and some even begin dancing (or more appropriately, moshing).

We’re at the After Party of the Veterans for Ron Paul March on the White House in D.C., and the lyrics to this intense song seem to take on a special meaning for the active duty troops and veterans who had just sang our own songs of revolution in cadence as we marched through the streets of Washington earlier that same day. The band is tight and sounds like a poetic storm of justice raging against the corruption of a broken political system. The song reaches a point where the music gets low and the softer lyrics exclaim that, “it’s all just become so clear.” Truer lyrics were never sang for so many of us in the crowd who had shared such a sense of patriotic purpose as we had exercised our Rights to free speech in front of President Obama’s own front yard only hours before. 

Adam jumps off the stage, heading into the pit of slam-dancers. He wraps his microphone chord around his arm and invites everyone to gather in close for the next part of the song.  The music explodes again as Adam spits the line, “they’ve left us with no choice but to start a revolution!” The walls of the building shake with approval as the crowd goes crazy upon hearing this powerful exclamation of what had been on the mind of so many of us throughout the day. 

We are swept up in a wave of righteous indignation and elation as Adam’s soaring screams bellow the battle cry we are all feeling, “let’s start a revolution!” It’s an original song by an original band that has success written all over it. It’s an in-your-face modern-day battle-hymn of the Republic. It is the theme song of a generation of young people who have nothing invested in a corrupt system of government which only promises them perpetual debt and perpetual war. It is part of the beginnings of a new American Revolution. \m/
