In the past, I have always considered myself an independent voter who most often leaned toward the Republican side of political issues. That was back when the Republican Party’s platform was built on certain conservative values such as fiscal responsibility and limited government. However, it seems that over the last decade … or maybe since Ronald Reagan … the Republican Party has losts its focus and has simply become just another version of the same incompetent politicians who currently make up the the leftist leadership of the democratic party. Both party’s political leadership simply push their own agendas and self-interests … rather than doing the job we elected them to.
Have you ever noticed that the only real difference between the last Bush administration and the current Obama administration is scale! Do you remember that popular liberal mantra, “Bush Lied, People Died.”
Try “Obama Lied, America died” on for size.
Now … I am neither a Bush fan or a Bush basher. President Bush did some good things while in office and he kept this country safe for almost 8 years. He also made some mistakes … all presidents do. Bush was a moderate Republican and did spend way too much money. That being said, he did love his country and, though we can argue over his methods in hindsight, he did his best to keep it safe from the threat of Islamic terrorism!
However our new Messiah, Obama, is an altogether different story. Obama detests what America stands for and is doing his best to change America into a socialist state modeled on his own peculiar vision of utopia … a two class society with a benevolent, super-rich, liberal elite running things and everyone else living a useful, lower-middle class life according to the dictates of the benevolent left-wing elitists.
That Obama is a product of the radical leftist Chicago machine is nothing new. Have you read his books? Do you remember his chosen friends and/or mentors like Bill Ayers (Terrorist), the Reverend Jeremiah Wright (Black Liberation Theology), Frank Marshall Davis (Marxist), Alice Palmer (Leftist Illinois Senator), Gregory Galluzzo (Saul Alinsky Protege #1), Mike Kruglik (Saul Alinksy Protege #2), and John L McKnight (Saul Alinsky Protege #3).
In fact, Obama said that being tutored by McKnight, Galluzzo and Kruglik was “the best education I ever had, better than anything I got at Harvard Law School.“
The truth is that behind his charming good looks, winning smile, and charismatic manner; Obama is actually a product of the Chicago political machine; a power-hungry politician well-schooled in the Saul Alinsky method of community organization.
Saul Alinsky (a communist) was known as the Godfather of modern community organizing. He taught his followers to manipulate an individual’s self-interest as a lever to seduce people to support their cause.
The beginnings of Saul Alinsky’s modern approach to effective community organizing can be traced to the slums of Chicago’s South Side in the 1930s. Alinsky organized the people who lived in the Back of the Yards, a rough neighborhood Upton Sinclair made famous in his book, The Jungle. It was, as Alinsky stated later in a interview for Playboy Magazine in 1972,
a cesspool of hate: the Poles, Slovaks, Germans, Negroes, Mexicans and Lithuanians all hated each other and all of them hated the Irish, who returned the sentiment in spades.
That was just what Alinsky needed. His goal was not to get the people he organized to love each other, just to work together to help him achieve his goals. Alinsky was once quoted as saying, “to [expletive] your enemies, you’ve first got to seduce your allies.”
Obama learned this lesson very well and used it to win the 2008 Presidential Election.
Do you ever wonder why, despite the growing mountain of evidence of voter fraud and other criminal activities by ACORN, Obama’s administration officials refuse to invistigate this organization’s activities? Did you ever stop to wonder how an idiot like Al Franken got elected a U.S. Senator in the state of Minnesota?
So … the Federal Government simply goes on conducting business as usual … bashing the last administration, making itself bigger, voting itself more power, wastefully spending more and more taxpayer money … then coming after still more of our hard-earned money. They are intruding more and more into our private lives, slowly eroding our Constitutional Rights, and riding roughshod over States Rights. Nothing has really changed except the scope … and the speed at which it is being done.
Liberals used to screech, rant, rave, and yank out their hair when raging about the evils of George Bush … the money spent by the Bush administration. the War in Iraq, the War on Terror, etc.
However, the Bush administration’s spending is dwarfed when compared to the money spent by Obama in just his first year as president. And …we are still in Iraq and getting deeper into Afghanistan. The War on Terror is still on going … we just now call it “The War on Man-Caused Disasters.”
Where is the screech, ranting, raving and yanking of hair now?
President Bush passed Stimulus I which achieved nothing … giving each American family about $600 (or a car payment). Obama passed Stimulus II which, as it turns out, nobody bothered to read … and incidently, while costing us $1 trillion, has failed to stimulate anything except government growth. That’s because it was actually a pork spending bill and not a stimulus bill at all.
The American people might have discovered that truth had this bill actually been read … and not rushed through at breakneck speed (Hey wait … isn’t that happening again … can you say “public healthcare”).
So … we now also have the National Bank of Obama, Obama Motors, … and soon ObamaCare; because, despite the concerns and questions of the majority of the American people, Obama arrogantly stands at the podium and vows that health care reform will pass this year.
I guess this is so that nobody will have a chance to read this legislation either … and discover how bad it actually is!
Patients in countries with socialized medicine already have unbearable tax burders, long waits for routine doctor visits, rationed care, and treatments that are not available because the government can’t afford them. Why do you think Canadians come to the U.S. for treatment when they have serious health issues? Why do you think that people in the U.K. who can afford it purchase private health insurance even though they have “free” healthcare?
So …. what does this have to do with a two party system?
Well, let me tell you! It is like this … To me there is little difference between the leftist Democratic Party and the current Republican Party. They have become slightly different flavors of the same political mess. They have essentially now formed a Democratic/Republican Party. Thats why I am a member of the Independent Party.
Just the other evening I was talking on the phone with Mark DeVol. I had written about Mark in an earlier post on the blog. Mark is running for the U.S. House of Representatives, Third District, Tennessee in the November, 2010 election. Mark and I were discussing this very same topic when Mark stated that he strongly believes in the two party system. He went on to explain saying that he belonged to “the political party that respects the Constitution, the limited role of the Federal Government, the rule of law, and the rights of the individual.” It is because of this belief that Mark is running as an Independent. It seems Mark too, is a member of the Independent Party.
In truth, the Democrat/Republican Party has has simply failed to produce any elected officials with the guts and integrity to fight for a return to a constitutionally-based government; or other important issues such as Securing Our Borders, States Rights, Term Limits, the Fair Tax, Balanced Budget, or Tort Reform.
Mark DeVol is not a politician. He is a local businessman. He is an honest, traditional, conservative American. Like me, Mark believes in the America that was founded on the ideals of individual rights, individual responsibility, the Rule of Law, and Religious Freedom … the America that we are in real danger of losing if Obama gets his way.
Unlike Barack Obama, Mark is the kind of man who will try to do what he says he will do if elected. However, Mark is also a realist … and knows he can’t work miracles. One man cannot change the government! However, if we did get Mark DeVol elected … and … if there are other men like Mark DeVol in other states as well; men who love this country as it was founded; men not bent on transforming our Country into just another failing socialist state like France or Sweden.
What if, using a grassroots approach, we could get some of these other true conservative Americans elected . .. perhaps we could stop this liberal madness … perhaps we could save our Nation from extinction.
