IT’S US AGAINST THEM TYRANNY KNOWS NO PARTY

Aug 11 2012

When Republicans and Democrats alike are actively stripping our most fundamental rights from us, how can we possibly continue to argue “my side is better than yours” when clearly BOTH sides are tyrannical beasts focused only on securing their own power?

Before we go farther, I want you the reader to understand that I am not advocating a third party. Nor am I advocating for or against Democrats or Republicans. I honestly don’t think I have ANY affiliation anymore, as both sides have become the most dastardly villains witnessed in all of American history. The hell with parties, they are both by and large corrupt to their very core. Their goal is not the protection of liberty and the Constitution, but rather the endless accumulation of power and wealth. And this dastardly accumulation knows no bounds.

As a movement we managed to “take the House”, but we did so by compromising the very values we set out to protect. Rather than filling the halls of Congress with public SERVANTS who would take their oath to protect and defend the Constitution seriously; we chose to believe the pundits who told us we had to keep the “establishment” types in office, because only a Republican majority, garnered at any cost, could save us. We gambled and lost.

We would do well to remember why we threw the last Republican congress out in the first place. The 109th Congress spent like drunken sailors, passed absolutely and unequivocally unconstitutional legislation, and was every bit as corrupt as the Democrats we later threw out in 2010. So what has changed? NOT A DAMN THING.

We still have establishment Republicans and Democrats. We still have John Boehner, and all his tears, begging to raise the debt ceiling. We still have Paul Ryan pitching a much ballyhooed fiscal plan that, when you read the fine print, only differs from Obama’s completely irresponsible spending plan by a very small margin. We still have Mitch McConnell and Harry Reid offering up deals that end the Senate’s constitutionally mandated duties and feed the growing beast of executive powers. We still have Nancy Pelosi getting rich off insider information. We still have so called “Tea Party Caucus” members declaring that standing on the Constitution is a losing battle. And now we are contemplating a new batch of Congressional and Senatorial candidates, some of whom actively participated in the very same graft that you and I decry every day. But somehow we keep deluding ourselves into thinking all that graft, corruption and dirty deals are OK or at least less dangerous when they have an R behind their name. BALONEY!

It comes down to this, party affiliation means nothing. No longer are the issues a question of Democrat versus Republican. Rather, we face an issue of US AGAINST THEM, because if there is anything I have learned in the last three years it is that NO PARTY CAN BE TRUSTED. Both are power hungry and will stop at nothing to get their way. I have had some of the most powerful men in Congress lie to my face in an effort to win my support; and had those same men try to crush and discredit me when I refused to support them. I have witnessed Republicans, who claim to stand on the side of Freedom overwhelmingly pass legislation that revokes Habeas Corpus and the Posse Comitatus Act. I have seen Democrats who are claim to stand on the side of freedom sponsor legislation that gives the administration the authority to strip citizens, yes even natural born citizens, of their American citizenship based on suspicion and not the fair trial guaranteed by the Constitution.

THE CHOICE WE NOW FACE IN AMERICA IS ONE OF LIBERTY VERSUS TYRANNY.

If we mean to survive, we must stop pulling the R or the D lever out of some misguided sense of loyalty. Rather we must look at each and every candidate on an individual basis. STOP paying attention to who the media and the party tells you CAN win and START paying attention to who YOU believe SHOULD win. See how they have voted in the past. Examine whether the candidate has a record of voting core principles or if the candidate instead votes in whichever manner is politically expedient enough to allow him or her to continue feeding at the trough of political benefits. Pay attention to which candidates would willingly trample the constitution and actively trade YOUR liberty for a misguided sense of security.

As God is my witness, I honestly no longer care whether you or anyone else is a Democrat or Republican. I care that Americans know their rights and vote for the person who has a record of protecting those rights.

For heaven’s sake PAY ATTENTION. Our future is at stake. Our children’s future is at stake. Would you have them burdened with trillions of dollars that can never be repaid? Would you have their speech stifled for fear they become labeled political dissidents and shipped silently in the night to unknown holding cell?

WILL YOU TRADE LIBERTY FOR SECURITY? OR WILL YOU STAND FOR PRINCIPLES OVER POLITICS?

THINK! THEN VOTE!

In Liberty,
