I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about the issue of the upcoming election. We are not an actual political organization here at the Tenth Amendment Center, per se’, but one thing I do think about is what has become of our Republic. We are pursuing the means (nullification) we believe will result in the highest likelihood of a restoration of the Republic, as envisioned by the Founders themselves. Still, I’d like to weigh in on a subject that I believe gets very little attention. The two-party system.
Now… I don’t really believe in the two-party system, because I believe that it presents the country with a succession of very bad choices which progressively become worse and worse as time goes on. For those who do believe in a two-party system, however, perhaps some proverbial fat to chew on: What do those two parties have to stand for? That is, if all the choices society wants a say in are encompassed in those two parties, which one is the small government, and which is for big government? Which is for morality? And if one is for morality, is the other for immorality? Do all of the immoral people have a “duty” to vote for the immoral candidate? How about the candidates in favor of conscription (the Draft)? And my wife might like to know which candidate represents people who like Carrot Cake!?
I ask these admittedly silly questions to bring to light to the idea of maintaining our freedoms. If we are to prevent government from growing progressively larger and more oppressive, we need to be able to vote for a “small government” candidate. He would presumably come from a small “government” party, so.. which party is that party today? The majority of people would no doubt say that the Republican party is the “party of small government,” but are they? If they are to remain the party of small government, don’t they need to put forward actual small government candidates from time to time?! Who here thinks Romney is the candidate of small government? PUT YOUR HANDS DOWN YOU LOOK RIDICULOUS!!!Details
