No More Kings!

I was checking out Facebook last night and began seeing references to the following Christmas message from the Republican National Committee, which seemingly celebrates our new King (AKA President-elect Donald Trump).

I dismissed the message, because it seemed clear to me that they were referencing Jesus Christ and not Trump. But it's still all over the news today. The RNC has clarified that they weren't talking about Trump, but instead Jesus' birth.

Which made me think of "No More Kings," one of the "School House Rocks" songs from my childhood. This particular song dealt with the American Colonies, the Boston Tea Party, and the launching of the American Revolutionary War. The United States of America don't have a King and members of all political parties need to push back against the notion political legacies.
