Perhaps the status quo is no longer holding; people are growing more and more dissatisfied with their options, whether democrat or republican.
The truth is, the current two-party system always leaves one half of a country ticked off and feeling oppressed. This begs the question; is this really what the Founders intended 233 years ago when they signed a document that started the country? Did they really intend Congress to manipulate 3 Clauses in Article 1 Section 8 so as to rack up a $105 trillion dollar debt? Did they intend to have the 10th Amendment ridiculed like it was by David Shuster on MSNBC? Did they really want one-half of the country perpetually angry at the other?Details
The two-party system has failed miserably as sadly, both parties support the status quo…BIG GOVERNMENT and therein lies the problem. The fundamental question is whether this is what the Founders desired? If we believe the Founders wanted a HUGE bloated ever-encroaching federal bureaucracy, the current two-party system fits the bill. However, there’s one problem with this scenario,…Details
What was once depicted as a grave act of lawlessness — Bush’s NSA program — is now deemed a vital state secret. The Obama administration, happy to hold on to the power that the Bush administration handed to it, is now saying “toss the wiretap lawsuit.” Why? Because it threatens to expose ongoing government intelligence…Details
Are You Finally Ready To Trust Your Conscience?
Most politicians are not bad people, but the system has a way of chewing them up and spitting them out. Once in the system, they learn to play the game and almost always compromise their integrity when it can be justified and even sometimes when it cannot. This is done while we look the other way if it’s “our guy” and/or they give us something we want. That’s the insidiousness of democracy and these “representatives” continue to do anything to stay in power.
Many of the problems that we face today can mostly be chalked up to our divisions fueled by our two beloved major parties. While we’re fighting each other and pinning down scapegoats, the hotshot politicians are laughing all the way to the bank (you know…Citi, Goldman, so on and so forth).
I don’t believe citizens who still identify themselves as Republicans and Democrats are happy with the destination that either of our parties is taking us; they simply don’t know how to address mess they find themselves in. My gut tells me that the majority my fellow citizens want a representative to rely on defined accountability, common sense, and a set of principles that value the unalienable rights and responsibilities of the individual.Details
Ron Paul: “My first reaction would be, ‘What does he have against the Constitution?’
While the left is constantly screaming that Beck is some kind of nutcase that “hates America,” he’s been moving more and more to a true constitutional position, one that’s separating him from the establishment hacks on both sides of the political aisle…and one that includes positions he often denounced just a few years ago. Like…Details
Critics who mock us as “tenthers” because we share views identical with Thomas Jefferson repeatedly make a fatal error. They believe that we are the same as the beltway, neoconservative, GOP-loyal rightwing. For instance, check out Alan Colmes attempt at “tenther-bashing.” His big finisher? Under our analysis, George W. Bush’s No Child Left Behind is…Details
