Readers: The entries in this blog are built around the assumption there will be a 5th revolution in the US — the Revenge Revolution. More about the Revenge Revolution, a list of earlier revolutions and the author, Entry #1

Periodically I write a “sense check” to assess whether a revolution in the US is possible or whether the entire exercise is based on a statistical aberration — i.e., a roughly 50-year cycle between major upheavals in the US.  Entry #400 was the most recent “sense check.” 


Lizzy Cheney got the axe
Kev McCarthy gave her 40 whacks
But wasn’t Lizzy a rising star
Expected to go quite far?
She’s got a Republican pedigree
All the time on daddy’s knee
What’d she do that was so wrong?
Sing a tune from some bad song?
Her song consisted of a single note
The truth about the people’s vote
The truth about some washed up coot
Yet, for the truth she got the boot
It’s so hard to understand oh why
Republicans said to her goodbye
Telling the truth seems so wise
So much better than all those lies
What do Republicans really believe?
That normal voters are that naive?
What happens next is hard to know
Will democracy take another blow?
When will all the craziness stop?
Or is the US experiment going to flop?
