Does Donald Trump Really Want a Revolution?

It is amazing what some people will say these days to get attention.  He was not feeling in a celebratory mood after it was declared that Barak Obama was re-elected as the President of the United States.  In fact, he was so pissed that he called for a revolution:

“He lost the popular vote by a lot and won the election. We should have a revolution in this country!,” the reality TV star tweeted. ”The phoney electoral college made a laughing stock out of our nation. The loser one!” Mr. Trump also tweeted.

It's a couple of interesting points in his statement.  The first falsehood is that the President lost the popular vote.  Even though it was a close race, Barak Obama won the popular vote.  With Florida declaring almost a week late, this fact still holds.  The second part of the statement I have a question with is the 'we' in the statement.  Who is he referring to? We know there is a serious disparity of wealth in this country.  Check to see who the billionaires list in this country.  How diverse is this list?  Check the list of Fortune 500 CEO's.  Any diversity on this list?  Political power is a way for the powerless to advance, but the real satisfaction at the end of the day is calling the shots at major corporations.

I don't think any natural born Americans have live through revolutions.  We have immigrants and naturalized citizens who might have lived through revolutions or civil wars in Sierra Leone, Rwanda, Bosnia or Syria.  The definition for a revolution follows:

A revolution is often known as a war and known as violent, but a good definition of revolution is a "fundamental change in power or organizational structures that takes place in a relatively short period of time". So a revolution is a fundamental change that takes place in a relatively short period of time.
A revolution occurred four years ago when Barak Obama was first elected President of the United States.  It was bloodless.  Although he is bi-racial, he would have been considered black, colored or a lesser citizen by our Founding Fathers.  Some of them might have turned over in their grave at the thought of a person of color not just living in the White House, but calling the shots.  I am proud of the job that President Obama has done up until this point.  He, he wife and children are an excellent Family and an example of what our country can be.  The following picture is the most re tweeted picture of all time.  Husband, wife, love!!  How's that for Family values?

Barack & Michelle Obama's Cutest Family Moments

Donald Trump is so warped in his viewpoint that he believes that blood should be shed to get the country back on track.  He even wants to abolish the electoral college.  Does he not envision the fact that our country is changing.  Minorities are slowly becoming the majority.  The Hispanic population is the fastest growing minority group in the country.  What will happen when a candidate doesn't just wish he was born Hispanic, but actually is?  Manifest Destiny does not apply anymore unless we are talking about moving to Antarctica.  That might not be  possibility with global warming on the horizon.

So Mr. Trump, on paper you are a rich American.  You will sue anyone who questions that so I won't.  Why are you so unhappy.  We cannot all build golf courses in Scotland and build fabulous casinos so the less fortunate can squander our money.  But be careful what you wish for.  You do not live in an inner city community where revolutions are settled at the end of a bullet.  Be happy that you do not live in Camden, NJ right now.  A whole city couldn't afford to maintain an adequate level of police staffing.  I don't think that concerns you though.  Maybe you and Mitt Romney can meet and figure out what to do now.  True revolution is not an option at this point
