Revolution 1.0. Stay tuned for Revolution 2.0.

2010-1776 = 234.

It took 234 years, but could it be we are seeing Revolution 2.0 in Massachusetts?  If so, I will once again be proud to be from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts

The “elite” still hasn’t grokked it.  This is NOT a Republican vs. Democrat issue; this is about taking our government back from the institutionalized lunacy of two tone-deaf parties.  We, the American people feel increasingly alienated from our government.  We want a government that serves us and we resist becoming its servants.  It’s who we are:

...that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government: of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

Should Revolution 2.0 transpire, it’s possible the markets could thrust higher on expectations of a greatly diminished Obama/Reid/Pelosi program and the possibility of a less business-hostile environment. 

Sounds good to me.

  1. Another nice column, Mr. Hamon. I have to disagree on one point. The “elite” does understand that this is a broad, populist movement, that doesn’t easily get channeled into the usual party system. It might not have a year ago, but now I think it does.

    It is clear that our current political system is not working (I heard an interesting interview with James Fallows on WHYY recently that made the case well: http://whyy.org/cms/radiotimes/2010/02/10/the-atlantics-james-fallows/). Not sure how this movement will fit in. But — depending on which of the many populist factions win out — it is not clear that it will result in an economy in which will be more competitive globally.
