Is it time for a third party to emerge?

February 20, 2013

This is a reposting of a previously posted article

 

I wrote this article last year and I feel as strongly about this issue now as I did then.  With early voting already started and election day quickly approaching I urge you to refuse to continue to vote for “the lessor of two evils”.  It is time to break the cycle!!    Let’s let our elected officials know that they can no longer take us for granted and that we will require them to represent us and put our country’s needs before their own or we will fire them.

 


 

As our country continues to spiral into oblivion I find myself not satisfied with the current two party system.  More and more each day I realize they my interests are less and less represented in Washington.  With this understanding I have to begin looking at what my options are.

First, I could believe that my representatives know more than I do and have our country’s and my best interest at heart. After all, they say all the right things while they are trying to get my vote.  They make all the right promises and go on the right shows.  Maybe they really do have the country’s and my best interest at heart.  To do this I would have to stop paying attention to what they are doing and shift into blind faith mode.  Hmmm, I don’t think so….

Next, I could disassociate myself from the whole process.  I could stop paying attention to politics altogether and stop worrying about what goes on in Washington or Nashville.  But in order to pull this off I will have to stop caring about my children’s and grand-children’s futures.  I know I can’t do that, so…..

Thirdly, I could work to reform one of the two major parties from within….to return it to it’s core, stated values so that it would once again represent me.  To do this would require the help of many higher ups within the party.  These are people that are not easily accessed.  I would have to find someway to speak with them and convince them to help me advance the reform agenda I have.  This is viable option for local and state representatives.  I mean, I could make an appointment and actually get to speak with them, or I could knock on their front door and ask to speak with them, or maybe I would see them at church or the little league field.  Unfortunately, this is not an option on the federal level.  These people only want to hear from me when I am casting a vote for them.  The rest of the time they seem to want me to sit down, shut up, and trust them no matter what I hear or see.  At one time I thought this was the best alternative.

Lastly, I can look to change the rules of the game.  To do this, new players must be introduced and paradigms must be shifted.  To do this I would have to leave my comfort zone.  I would have to realize that the only way to stop or change the monstrous system we now have is to stop feeding it.  The old saying about the definition of insanity comes to mind here.  I would have to accept the fact that I would have to take some steps back in order to ultimately go forward in a better way.  At this point I am beginning to think that I can do this.  It is worth the short term cost in order to get the long term gain.

I believe it is time for a viable third party to emerge.  I believe we can’t fix our issues by remaining on the same path.  Drastic and radical changes must be made and made now.  I invite you to join me in looking for that viable third party.

Another Activist Judge Example

August 5, 2010

Here is another example of ONE judge throwing out the will of the people and imposing his personal opinions on them. The best aspect of this ruling is that it will be appealed and should eventually end up at the Supreme Court where it can finally be settled.

Britain plans to decentralize National Healthcare

Obama is trying very hard to implement a European style socialized health care system here. At the same time, Europe is realizing that their system does not work. Britain is the first to look at doing this. Who is next……maybe us?

Obama Following the Alinsky Textbook

June 26, 2010

This article posted over at Human Events brings an interesting perspective on Obama’s divide and conquer methods.  I have heard others make the connection of Obama to Alinsky’s book Rules for Radicals but I don’t remember seeing it explained by using the specific rules from the book.  It is very informative to see the rule and then some specific examples of what Obama has said and done.

Take a moment to read the article and tell me what you think.

Here is yet another example of how the “most transparent, ethical” government we have ever had works.  Read this article for yourself but be prepared to be angry when you are done.

I can’t wait until the November mid-term elections.  I truly hope we throw these bozos out.  What are your thoughts about this article or the upcoming elections?

Is U.S. Now On Slippery Slope To Tyranny?

June 22, 2010

Thomas Sowell has written an editorial published at Investors.com with the above title.  In one excerpt, Sowell says

With vastly expanded powers of government available at the discretion of politicians and bureaucrats, private individuals and organizations can be forced into accepting the imposition of powers that were never granted to the government by the Constitution.

In this short piece Sowell brings up several good and valid points.  Please read it and share your thoughts in the comment section.

Girly-man Obama trying to sound tough

June 8, 2010

Does anyone take Obama seriously when he tries to sound tough like this?  I really doubt it.  Watch the video yourself and see if you can keep from laughing when he “talks tough”.

What’s Going on with Obama and the Military?

June 2, 2010

Here is a short article posted over at RedState discussing Obama not consulting the military leaders before he sets military policy.  Here is a good quote to get you started:

The Joint Chiefs of Staff are in open and public rebellion against the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs over Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. Most troubling, the Obama administration neither consulted nor advices the Chiefs before rushing off the congress with the proposal to lift DADT.
