I read something the other day that set me back on my heels because I had not thought of it before, and it clarified so many things for me – Political parties are private entities. Their sole purpose is to get people elected to office that reflect their political ideology Political parties do not necessarily represent the interests of the American People nor vow to uphold the Constitution & Bill of Rights, especially if these represent a threat to their continued quest for power and political ideology.
I keep wondering about how the Democratic Party could back a person that belongs in prison, or a person that espouses ideals contrary to the founding of this country. I also wonder how the Republican Party is, at least to me, attempting to manipulate the nomination toward a “chosen” candidate. Both parties are steeped in controversy and secrecy, seeming not to represent mainstream Americans, but those chosen few.
It now is clear – we have a political elite that seeks to completely rule the American People, and to eventually subjugate them into sheep. It doesn’t matter if they are Brand “D” or Brand “R”, the goal is the same.
Some examples of this are:
After 9/11, the Patriot Act contains some of the most egregious civil rights violations was passed, all in the name of protecting the “Homeland.” Another police agency was created with sweeping powers which included the suspension of civil rights if terrorist activity was suspected. We, the American People, allowed ourselves to be groped, prodded, X-rayed, and scrutinized in the name of security. And yet, terrorist acts still occurred on American soil. Even with this spotty track record, the Patriot Act was renewed.
President Obummer signed the Paris Climate Treaty without ratification by the Senate (as required by the Constitution), thereby obligating the United States to reduce carbon emissions but allowing other developing countries to spew to their heart’s content. The mandates of the EPA have already lead to the closing of coal companies and coal fired power plants, removing a source of relatively clean electrical power from the grid, and this will result in higher electricity prices. This will affect the poor and elderly as evidenced by similar actions in Europe which resulted in 40,000 elderly Europeans dying this past winter because they could not afford heat.
Neither political party wants to hear criticism of their policies and positions. In fact, those Democrats (and some Republicans) that support the Liberal positions of Manmade Climate Change, abortion, and LGBT policies have called for criminal prosecution of the people that oppose or voice dissent. People have lost jobs, been taken to court, and otherwise been harassed in what I see as violations of their First Amendment rights. This reminds me of the following quote:
“To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize.” – Voltaire
Indeed, those Liberals that invite open dialog to discuss the issues are the same people who want to toss you in jail (or worse) for expressing opposition unless you agree with them.
The Democratic candidates for President both state that the American citizen does not have the right to be armed, thereby stating that we have no right to self-defense against an attacker or overbearing government. There are some Republicans running for President that have had the same opinion, although they have reformed their image for the election. If they are elected, I wonder if they would change their tune…
Corporations give funds to candidates of both parties, but not because they support the platforms of the candidates. No, it’s to curry favor for legislation that would be beneficial to the corporation. Donald Trump has admitted to as much, and I highly suspect this is the reason for the Hildebeast “earning” millions of dollars in speaking fees. Personally, I would like the politicians to wear logos on their suits like the NASCAR and other racing drivers do to know who has “contributed” to their campaigns…
And I could go on, but I won’t. Do your own digging, and you will understand that both political parties have their own interests first, not the American people. It especially expands on something that I wrote back in November 2005:
In case any of you didn’t know, a typical politician’s primary job is not to serve the people who elected him. His primary job is to get himself (or herself) elected or re-elected. Second is to reward all those contributors that gave $$ to help him get elected. Third is to get as many perks & benefits as he can while he is in office. Last on the list is the common person like you & I.
